This morning we saw flamingos in the wild! Eek! I know it is a bit silly but I am over the top happy to have seen flamingos in the wild.
They have been on my bird dream list for years! We took a ATV Tour around Grand Turk this morning and as we pulled onto the beach there was a big ole group of flamingos off in the water.
I must admit that I totally wanted to just stop where I was at and run with my camera for photos but I held myself back and made sure I at least put the ATV in park and slowly and sort of calmly walked over to the beach.
So crazy amazing to just watch and listen to the pink flamingos. As we were watching them we also saw sharks in the water. I had a moment of happiness that we chose a land based excursion instead of the snorkeling we normally do when I heard that the bull sharks are in mating season right now.
Yep, very glad to be on the beach watching them from a distance.
The ATV Ride was so much fun. We spent 2 hours touring the island of Grand Turk. I can’t wait to share more photos when we get home.
We finished the afternoon on the beach soaking up the sun and relaxing in the water. It was truly a perfect day.
Tomorrow we are in La Romana, Dominican Republic. This will be our first time in the Dominican Republic. We are taking a beach excursion for the day. Hoping we do not get too sunburned and can relax in a comfy beach chair for a few hours.
