Provo, Turks & Caicos

June 4, 2007

George Town to Providenciales, Turks & Caicos
51 hours of traveling, approximately 240 miles.

We arrived in Provo at 0830AM. Hans went ashore and took care of customs’ paperwork and we eventually found the tiki bar we’d been looking forward to. The afternoon only got better when we invited ourselves to “The Regent: Palms” to enjoy their beach chairs and freshwater pool. The drinks were rather expensive, but worth it! Earl, a local guy who gave us a ride back to Whisper, recommended that we hang out at “Beaches” (another resort hotel) tomorrow!

Becky and Joe on Half Moon arrived a few days before us and were kind enough to fill up our jerry cans with 10 more gallons of diesel which we’ll need to get to the Dominican Republic. People always mention how nice cruisers are and how they look out for each other, and we find again and again that it is true.
