This man needs a vacation!

DSCN0127

Perhaps a nice villa on Providencales in the Turks & Caicos

DSCN0118

with a nice interior, 5 bedrooms

DSCN0055

a pool out back for vacationing feet

DSCN0116

DSCN0056

DSCN0053

and even your own private dock (sans boat).

DSCN0068

Near by (well nothing is tooo far away) are famous eatteries like Bugaloo's Conch Shack

DSCN0064

Where a tasty conch salad is served up wtih $8 beer

DSCN0063

and sage wisdom from Bugaloo himself (in the back)

DSCN0062

They catch the conch locally and keep a supply in a pen (behind Dorsey), then...

DSCN0066

they are wacked out in a few master knife strokes by a guy who has done this...

DSCN0065

a lot... the food was good here (but more colorful than great), and at more conventional spots of which there is a good selection.

DSCN0072

Then back to the villa for a G&T while waiting for...

DSCN0070

..yet another glorious sunset... but wiat.. what the hail is that thang..

DSCN0074

...oh I know what that is... what the ..(just a distant cloud)

DSCN0076

Diving, that's what we're here for

DSCN0109

ok and a little sailboat lusting never hurt.

DSCN0105 DSCN0077

ok on to diving, usually about an hour boat ride, 2 or 3 dives/day.

DSCN0086

where for the most part you are not out of sight of land ..

DSCN0088

or feet,

DSCN0089

or an odd assortment of soft drinks,

DSCN0093

and opportunites to put on the most flattering of outfits

DSCN0104

Always back in plenty of time for

DSCN0100

..let met guess.. another sunset?

DSCN0102 DSCN0061

A championship golf course on Provo?

DSCN0114

Who'da thunk it, but its true, nice course (so they tell me)

DSCN0132

Just down the road (well everything is just down the road) is the Conch farm. These guys are about 2" long and years old

DSCN0133

The little ones are shipped live as are their 3" older siblings

DSCN0136

Eventually its outside in controled tanks.

DSCN0131

and eventually in open ocean pens.

DSCN0138

By the time they are 6 yo they're ready for harvest, unless they are the farms pets

DSCN0139

hmm I think this one is the maile (showoff)

DSCN0128

If you are lucky they will even put up signs to your house (even if you don't live there)

DSCN0140

but try for a hill top as when it rains the low spots can get soggy

DSCN0110

but only for a short time

DSCN0166

mostly

DSCN0165

its

DSCN0164

clear

DSCN0163

from

DSCN0162

horizon

DSCN0161

to

DSCN0160

horizon

DSCN0159

and

DSCN0158

then some.

DSCN0113

Well this man STILL looks like he needs a vacation, oh wait he's ON vacation, hmm maybe next time we won't make him cook breakfast!.
