Turks and Caicos: By Horseback

Another relaxing beach day lead to an exciting late-afternoon horseback ride through the clear, warm waters of the Blue Hills area of Providenciales. While it isn’t always easy leaving the beach “early,” the picture of riding horses in my mind made it a tad easier. We drove to Unique Tour’s horseback riding “area,” and missed… Continue reading Turks and Caicos: By Horseback
