I have to say that we are all loving the 'featured posts' gadget addition, based on its popularity among visitors to T-Spots!
Our fourth featured post 'Cruising Into And Around Grand Turk ...' linked in the side-bar grille, takes us to Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos Islands!
It was first published in Dec. of 2012, among the very early posts of a brand new TrailSpots(T-Spots!) blog, but it had already been featured in a section of our sister blog @ spatrail.blogspot.com where it received close to 200 visits. How time flies ... and a great post remains a great post!
It's a throwback to my days at the Community College, Grand Turk Campus, in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Lots of memories there and I'm sure that some things have changed, but I'm also pretty sure that much remains the same in GT!
The salt ponds, for instance, are truly historical sites from an era when salt was a main export from the islands. You will see some of them in the feature.
People are amazed when they hear that you can do a quick spin around the entire island in under an hour. However, if you're on a leisurely trail, then you just have to stop and step into a few watering holes, like the Sand Bar (if it's still there!) or right into the real sea-water which is only steps away no matter where you go!

So take the cruise/trail with T-Spots and enjoy the sights. Maybe one of these days your yacht or jet might be sailing into or landing in the capital of the TCI, Grand Turk! If you happen to be a diving enthusiast, then this is your spot!
