COMMENT: Beach House – ANCHORED – Cockburn Town, Grand Turk Island – Turks and Caicos
Checked in with Customs and Immigration at South Dock. A bit of a \”recky\” to find them, but fortunately, we got two good dudes!
The South Dock area is a ZOO with the Cruise Ship folks. Nothing to a crowd in less than an hour. We\’re inside the shallow reef off Cockburn Town (Capitol)
of both the Turks and Caicos. These islands are called \”Turks\” as there is a cactus here that has an annual red flower. It has a tassle and looks just like
a \”Fez\” (or) a Turks Hat. Hence the name. Caicos is (they think, but are not sure) a variant pronunciation of the word \”Cay\” (which no mater how it\’s spelled is pronounced \”Key\”). We\’ll go and explore and the water here is not just warm but absolutely….\”Gin Clear\”…:-)

P.S. I think yesterday\’s blog did not post right and I\’ll see if I can find wifi and post it ashore.
