Day Trippin' in North Caicos

We decided to take a little trip. When I say little I mean we took three flights to visit our friends Sam and Becca in Turks and Caicos. There are worse places for your friends to decide to emigrate to. Just as soon as we landed Sam and Becca suggested a day trip to North and Middle Caicos. So we hopped on a Ferry, hired a Jeep and went for a drive.

The Caicos Islands are located in the North Atlantic Ocean north of The Dominican Republic and east of Cuba. North and Middle Caicos are two of the largest islands but have a tiny population and little tourism which makes them a tropical haven of tranquility.

Well, they were until our little group of miscreants got there. There's something awesome every where you look. Stunning calm sea, hand made playground...
Jake decided he'd do his best impression of Miley Cyrus on a wrecking ball. To be fair, his impression was pretty good.
We stopped off at Flamingo Pond Overlook, home to the West Indian Flamingo. Sometimes there are thousands of them apparently. We saw one. But hey, that's one more than I'm gonna see in Warwick so that was good enough for me!

We continued on our adventure and came across a Medicine Man's house. Hanging outside were ears of corn and strange wig like objects. Boards were propped outside covered in slightly bizarre statements about the islands and its inhabitants.
We continued on to Sandy Point Beach. When we arrived we were greeted by a row of tiki huts. We quickly discovered that this was also home to all of the mosquitoes on the island but after dousing ourselves in spray and running around like girls (and that was just the guys) we settled in.
Becca fashioned a carnival costume out of a palm leaf. I call this look 'desert island chic'.
While the lads cracked open the beers I took myself off for a little walk to discover the beach. Completely deserted and silent except for the gentle rolling of the waves.
North and Middle Caicos is generally windier and rainier than Turks and Caicos which is why tourism hasn't really taken off here yet. This is my absolute excuse for my windswept selfie!
I'll be back tomorrow with some pictures of Middle Caicos. Thanks for reading!
