Maiden Voyage to Providenciales

Turks & Caicos Islands

One thing about going any place: You have to get there first.
If you've never been there before, it's a maiden voyage. This was our first
time ever to but one of 308 islands in this British Overseas Territory.
Providenciales is where most of the people in this far-flung country live.

Sigh. You'd think there'd be a 1st Class lounge at the aeroport, Muffy...
First leg: Denver-Dallas.
Early morning anticipation

We arrived on the island in the mid-afternoon, and visited the beach right away, frisbee in hand.
The wind was a quite brisk this day, so flying the disc was a challenge. The following morning
was a little better. Trade winds hadn't kicked up yet, but they were still a bit frisky.

Getting the hang of beach frisbee...
Taylor & Eli are
new to this technique
31 March 2013
Body English. Definitely not British.

far-flung frisbee

Learning curve descends here...
Spot the frisbee!

You do this when
you catch the frisbee!
31 March 2013
If I only had a brain...
Scarecrow method.
