Fall Break has officially begun and we are headed to Turks and Caicos. Our morning started early and a little white-knuckled.
The weathermen were forcasting a little snow. Things didn't seem bad until we got a few miles down the interstate...black ice and LOTS of it. On our drive to the airport (which usually takes 45 minutes) we saw 5 different rollover accidents. Fortunately we made it to the airport in one piece and on time for our flight. Deicing at DIA took an extra 1 1/2 hours, but our layover in Atlanta gave us enough of a buffer. After grabbing a snack we boarded the last leg of our journey and actually arrived early in T&C!
These two photos were the views Chad and I had for the week. We were aboard the Turks & Caicos Explorer II. We were on this same boat two years and had a wonderful trip. On the last trip there were 18-20 people on the boat...this week, only 6...it was AWESOME!
The first picture is of the dive deck and the second photo is of the bottom of the boat...took it while on our safety stop.
