Turks and Caicos

by on Jan.29, 2012, under Flying

On Jan­u­ary 22, we depart­ed Cat Island for the short twen­ty minute flight to Stel­la Maris, MYLS, to refu­el and clear cus­toms out of the Bahamas. We were in the air in forty five min­uets and on our way to the Prov­i­den­ciales, in the Turks and Caicos. We arrived after the one hour and twen­ty min­uet flight and land­ed with the aid of the RNAV approach into run­way ten. Pro­vo Air, the FBO, helped us secure the air­craft, whisked us through cus­toms and took us to our hotel, the Grace Bay Club. This prop­er­ty is absolute­ly fab­u­lous. We had a great suite, the grounds were per­fect, the loca­tion is in the mid­dle of Grace Bay beach, the ser­vice was extra­or­di­nary and they have a five star restau­rant to boot. Only com­plaint is that we watched our beloved 49ers defeat them­selves in the NFC play­off game the night of our arrival.

We spent four great days and nights at the Grace Bay Club. We dined at three very good restau­rants includ­ing the Ana­cona at the resort. The weath­er was per­fect, warm but not humid with a nice breeze, and the beach as well as the pool were beau­ti­ful. The evening were warm and in all it was a great stay.

On Jan­u­ary 26 we depart­ed a 9:00 AM for Fort Laud­erdale, KFXE and with a nice tail wind were on the ground in Flori­da, in 3 hours. The flight was back up the Bahamas chain over Stel­la Maris, Nas­sau and Bimi­ni, rarely out of sight of land.

The islands and water were beautiful.

We land­ed, cleared cus­toms, refu­eled, picked up a box lunch and were in the air in an hour. We again enjoyed a tail wind and arrived in Hilton Head before 4:00 P.M.

It was anoth­er great trip to the mag­i­cal waters and islands of the Bahamas and trop­i­cal Atlantic.
