This is another "should have been written a while ago posts". Like months and months ago. Enjoy!
When I went on my cruise, one of the stops was to Grand Turk. I was planning on just hanging out at the beach but then I went to the gift shop. I was waiting on some of my group before we all headed to the beach when I saw it...a flamingo ornament. Now, I didn't think much of it until I started to see a TON of flamingo souvenirs. I asked one of the store clerks if there were flamingos on the island and they said yes, they hang out in the middle of the island. Huh? OK. I was thinking maybe there were a few at a local persons house or zoo type place.
We went on to the private beach and I was getting so hot and I was still dehydrated from my surfing trip so I wanted to go back to the ship. I got a taxi and there were a few people in it. I casually asked the driver about the flamingos and he said, "Oh yes, there are a lot of them. I will take you there". OK!!!!!!!
The island was formally used as a salt tank area so that is where the flamingos like to hang out. When I got there I was sooooooooo exciteeeeeedddddd.
OMG. I can't believe it. I actually got to see real life flamingos somewhere other than a zoo or a Las Vegas hotel.
