Around the World in 26 Letters--Caicos

Technically, I think it's Turks & Caicos, but I needed it to fit for the letter C :) I'm a sun and beach kind of girl. I love heat. I love the sound of water. I love the colors filling places like this. Being from Washington state, getting to these tropical places can take a while. The closest options are the Hawaiian Islands or Mexico. My husband and I have been to both a few times, so for our 10th anniversary I started looking up beach destinations that wouldn't take too much time flying in airplanes. Turks & Caicos weren't too terribly far away, so they made it on the list. Unfortunately we didn't go, but some day we hope to.



Looks pretty dreamy to me :)

    1. I was pretty excited when it made it on to the list of possibilities :) I don't think there's much to do there except sit on that beach, sounds pretty perfect to me!

  5. Gorgeous! I'm not sure where Turks & Caicos is, the ignorant American that I am, but I will have to look it up.

    1. It's not far off of Florida, so not too much extra flight time beyond the US :)

  7. Looks nice. My hubby and I are planning our 10th next year and we both realized we aren't so much beaches and umbrellas. I want to experience another culture and see places I love. So Europe is on our list, preferably English speaking places for our first trip across the pond.

  8. I am not a sun and beach girl. Or boy, for that matter. That said, I'd go there at least once, just for the water.

  9. Wonderful picture. Funny to see you write that the T&C are not far away as I always (from the UK) think of them as so distanrt. Hope you get there one day and have a fabulous time.

    1. I'm from Washington, so the flight time might be similar :) But it's worth it to get to places like that!

  10. Pretty! I want to lie down on that beach so bad. I'd even squeeze myself into a bathing suit for it. :)

  12. I love the color of the water in the Caribbean - that turquoise is just beautiful!

    Have a great trip!

  13. Hi Hope - it's so great to meet you!
    I'm from Seattle - so I know EXACTLY what you mean about needing the sun, the heat, and the beach! The pictures you've posted are beautiful...I so wish I was there, right now.
    Never been to T&C - but lived in Hawaii throughout college (my Mom's side of the family is all from there), and have traveled pretty much all over Mexico, the DR, Central and South America - I hope to make it to T&C at some point, too!
    Lovely post - looking forward to where we get to go tomorrow!

  14. That's some beautiful water! My first beach experience was in Costa Rica, and I couldn't believe how gorgeous (and warm!) the water was. Caicos looks like it would be even better!

    1. Yes! When we go on our first trip, we're gonna need to hit a lot of places ;)

  18. Oh wow - love your theme. *jealous bc I didn't think of it*
    And those photos are so beauteous. I long for turquoise water and white sand beaches that make your skin look like it's been dipped in sugar.
    Sigh.

  19. I'm all about the warm weather and sunshine. Although I probably won't go too far into the water cause I'm a complete chicken and think sharks are going to eat me! lol Ah - well. I'll still go and enjoy the sunshine!

    1. Me too Leigh! I know they're not swimming there waiting just for me, but I'm constantly looking for them! I can't snorkel because of them :(

  20. I am a warm weather, sunshine and each girl also. My husband and almost went there a few years back, but ended up going to St.Kitts. Have you been to St. Lucia? That is next on my list.
