Turks and Caicos Family Vaycay

 We are back from a week long, much needed vacation. We spent the week in Providenciales, which is in the Turks and Caicos Islands. We stayed in a cute VRBO with my husband's parents, my brother-in-law, and future sister-in-law. We ended up spending quite a bit of time at the Gansevoort, which as walking distance. If I ever made a trip back to the island I would 100% set up shop there.


 One of my favorite spots was a local beach bar, off the beaten path called Da Conch Shack.









 Another highlight of the trip was a sunset sailboat ride that turned into Spring Break 2013.

 I had to steal most of the pictures from my future sister-in-law. Unfortunately, the last night while we were out to dinner someone came in our vacation rental and stocked up on electronics, including my cell phone, Kindle and camera. I have to say I felt  safe the entire time we were there. Our house was located next to a public beach access and I think we were just unlucky. Thankfully, everyone was alright. I have to admit I am a little bummed they got all of my pictures from the weekend.
RIP DSLR :(

  15. I can't believe they stole all of your stuff. That's the worst. You sound like you handled it better than I would have. I'd have probably had a tantrum. Just saying.

  17. You're on my bookmarks and I was scrolling just before we left for the Turks. As we were checking into our villa, I was asking the manager all of these questions about security (having just read your post!) and he said they actually caught the guys! The manager was totally weirded out by the burglary, having lived on the island for 15 years. They knew exactly who the group was who did it. But apparently your robbery was (unfortunately) the talk of the island. Maybe call the police there, maybe they recovered something? We were there the 6-13th, stayed near the marina.
