A Journal, with Pictures

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.
