It’s been a summer full of photo styling for Tropical Imaging. One of our first projects was a photo and video shoot for Ocean Club. Many of the images on their website and posted on trip advisor were outdated and did not reflect both their original, and west locations, remodeling efforts. It was time for out with the old . . .
We managed to have a proper Saturday this weekend, a nearly work free Saturday, which is rare in our household. We took the dog to Leeward beach and enjoyed a bright, glassy turquoise ocean for a snorkel and swim. I took a few travel books to help us plan our next trip over lunch. We decided to stop at a little place we pass often that had a new sign hanging over the front entrance. Indian Kitchen has only been open two weeks and I highly suggest everyone give it a try before it gets crowded. Two Corona’s and two delicious vegetarian roti’s set us back only $28. The open air cafe sits just beside Alverna’s Market, perfect for tourists to take a browse at the local craft, seashell, and Haitian art selections. For those of us that live here, it’s one of those places that remind us we live in the Caribbean; simple white painted wood structure with splashes of color here and there, lattice and shutters to catch the breeze, and a small grassy courtyard area nestled between the market shops. We asked the friendly owner if we could move our table and chairs under the shade of a coconut tree and she eagerly obliged us. A nearby native lantana and a red hibiscus were visited by a hummingbird while we polished every last morsel off our plates.
Human Rights Day is celebrated in October here in the Turks and Caicos Islands. With the suspension of the constitution among many other issues, the topic of human rights is surfacing often. Whatever your views may be, please remember to get out there this weekend and support human issues! Tomorrow evening there is the Turks and Caicos Aids Awareness Foundation Oldies Night
