Grand Turk

We had an amazing day kayaking in an inner waterway in Grand Turk. The guide was not a biologist by any stretch but he was a young man that knew his island home and loved explaining it to tourists. Held a mangrove jellyfish, several different types of sea urchins, a sea cucumber and many, many conch. A wonderful way to end this amazing 2 week  Caribbean experience!!

Back to the ship for our planned sail away at 5pm.

Pulling away from the dock, next stop Miami.

 

Today is another “at sea” day.  Pilates class this am, a golf lecture in the morning and afternoon, dinner, then packing.  They pick up our luggage this evening and we’ll see it again tomorrow as we head to the airport.  It’ll require some organization to get out the door in the morning (some things are packed and some are not) and then we head to the airport.  Miami/Toronto/Edmonton and we’re home tomorrow night!!!  Amazing really.

Yesterday “at sea”

Yesterday was a total kickback relax day. Pilates in the am for me and Ivars had a spin class in the fitness centre. We both have good books started on our IPods so spent the day “reading” (listening) to our books and enjoying the sun and sea breezes.

Off the stern on our deck, deck 9

The view from the bow. This hot tub hasn’t been opened all trip (probably don’t want any “Titanic” re-enactments!!!)

Today we are in Grand Turk (Turks and Caicos). A sea kayak/eco walk trip is planned. Sounds wet and but very warm!!!

Tonight we have a special dinner booked. The chef prepares dinner and the head sommelier pairs special wines to each dish. Ivars will be totally hitting the adventure button on his side of the travel memories for this trip tonight!!!

Off for a leisurely breakfast and a look at Grand Turk.
