Day 365: This is me

The last day of the year!  The end of my project 365.  It was a great experience and I got to see some really awesome pics from other blog posters.  I will not be continuing another project 365 for 2012 - but only because there are other photo projects I would like to work on, and I just don't have the time to do it all!  If anyone would like to keep in touch - you can find me on is the link to my flickr photostream - check it out if you have a chance.
I wish you all a Happy New Year and continued success with all of your blogs!

Day 345: Unpacking

Lots of unpacking, laundry, etc today.  Back to 'reality'!  Here is one of the souvenirs we bought, for a friend of ours. 

Day 344: Last day on the beach

Flew home today.  Spent the few remaining hours in Turks and Caicos on the beach....enjoying the last time. 

Day 343: Boat cruise

Went on a neat boat cruise this afternoon.  Got to do some snorkeling and also visited 'Iguana Island'.  Unfortunately, we did not see any iguanas.  Oh well.  Was still a great cruise. 

Day 342: Evening on the beach

Spent most of the day in water....first the beach...then the water park...then the pool.  Tough day, huh?!  Haha.

Day 341: Caribbean wildlife

Found this little guy (an Egret?) on one of the lawns this afternoon.  Got as close as I could...without scaring him off!

Day 340: Sunset in the gazebo

My husband and I took a short walk today before dinner, and found this cute little gazebo overlooking the sea....with some couches inside.  It was so nice to sit down in and enjoy the sights and sounds of the rolling waves.

Day 339: Sea turtle

Took a long walk on the beach this morning.  On the way back, we spotted this sea turtle - swimming parallel to the shore.  Had to have fast reflexes to catch this guy, when he quickly popped his head out of the water!

Day 338: On the beach

Yes....this is what I did today.  It was so nice and warm out (or should I say 'hot'!).  I enjoyed soaking up the sun.

Day 337: We're here!

We arrived at the resort in Turks and Caicos today!  Palm trees and flowers everywhere - how nice to see in December!
