If Congress says you can’t come to work you might as well go to the beach, right?
Actually, we planned this trip back in the fall and are fortunate the timing of the government shutdown didn’t cause us any problems. We flew from Baltimore to Providenciales Island on the 23rd of January, rented a little right-hand-drive car, and met our friends from Ann Arbor, Michigan at a house overlooking the ocean. We were 5 kids and 4 adults and occupied our 5-day stay with beach time, pool time, snorkeling, and a boat trip.
Daily temperatures were 80 degrees and the water was warm enough for even Cheri to swim. The beaches were very calm and the kids all played in the water with float toys without fear of being pummeled by waves. We spent several mornings at Grace Bay beach, drove to Sapodilla beach for a sunset, snorkeled at Smith’s Reef, and swam in the pool at the house in between excursions. The highlight for me was a boat trip out along Pine Cay to see Iguana Island, offshore reef snorkeling, landing on an offshore sandbar, and visiting a shipwreck.
Highly recommended for a January getaway!
