boondoggle recap - turks & caicos edition

tandc.jpg

turks and caicosThis trip was a highlight for us - a four day trip to Providenciales in Turks & Caicos where we stayed in the Regent Palms on Grace Bay Beach. It was an incentive trip for Bob but it just so happened to coincide with our 21st wedding anniversary - perfect timing! We'd never been before but we would go back in a heart beat. It was a few days of sun, food and drinks - after all, this trip was made possible by Moët Hennessy / Grand Marnier. Here now is a visual recap of our few days in paradise. I pulled some of these photos from my instagram feed so they may look familiar and the debut of my second blog video.

coco-bistrocakeWe dined off resort Friday night at Coco Bistro (top photo courtesy of) outside under the cover of gorgeous lit palm trees. Get this - our waiter overhead the conversation about our anniversary and gifted us with this special dessert. Now THAT'S service.

Check back tomorrow for a recap of our last night  - we were treated to a phenomenal dinner on the beach complete with sunset cocktails (obviously), music and 'moonbathing' by a bonfire.
