Vacation Finale

Our last stop was the sleepy little island of Grand Turk.  What a cute place.  We took a tour of the island on a trolley which was great and very informative.  This place right here is one of the upscale Inns.  If you are looking for a place to just relax and get away from it all, this would be the island.  

I could imagine owning this little shop.  I imagine I could sell yarn and some souvenirs.

This place has the best conch fritters.  It's where the locals go.  

We got an order to go and enjoyed while on the trolley.  Our driver was awesome.  

This is what the water looked like.  I just love that shade of blue.

Now get this - there are wild donkeys and horses roaming the island.  Even a few goats.  We drove by one house that had about 10 horses just hanging out in the backyard.  No fence.  No lines.  Just wandering free.  We made a stop  near the lighthouse where the donkeys congregate in the afternoon. Nicole wanted to bring this sweetie home but didn't think he would get through customs. 

He was real sweet though. He would come over and nudge your hand so you would pet him.

Of course there were plenty of shops. The best part was the beach.  I stayed in the water for hours. Huge fish would swim past us.  I had a mini heart attack at first but realized they were harmless.  It's just strange to share the water with tropical fish. 

So that was vacation.  We came home feeling wonderful.  And started researching the next one.

Looks like a wonderful place to visit, fascinating that the horses and donkeys roam free.
