In June of 2009, my parents and I boarded a plane destined for Provodinciales, Turks & Caicos. Anixous to get out of the country, as I had only traveled to the Bahamas once before, the three hour plane ride went by surprisingly fast. Never had I seen such beautiful sights from the window of an airplane. When we landed in “Provo” as the locals called it, I knew we had reached paradise. Once we checked into our resort, we started exploring the property. We immediately went down to the beach, and I knew that the next seven days would be absolute bliss. The baby powder-like sand was soft under my feet as I looked out at miles of crystal clear water. While in Provo, I was able to go parasailing out over the ocean. My father and I went up about 400 feet in the air together. It was breathtaking to see the ocean change colors as the coral in the water changed and developed. While in the air, I was able to see a large sting ray, sea turtle, and even a shark. Also while in Provo, I was forunate enough to go conch diving. As I swam out in the turquiose water, I noticed a conch on the ocean floor. I dove down about twelve feet and successfully got the conch. Our ship captain then cut the meat out the conch and prepared it for us for lunch. I literally caught my own lunch! After spending a week in the Turks & Caicos, I realized my desire to explore the Earth. I want to see as much of God’s beautiful world as I possibly can. Traveling to the Turks & Caicos gave me a glimpse of that.
