You never forget your first white Christmas… Not when it looks like this.
Warm breezes drifting in off the sea, the sun setting just off to the right, pale powder pocked solely with bird tracks stretching along the shore as far as the eye can see.
This is Pine Cay, the private-island paradise situated just a quick boat ride from Provo in the Turks and Caicos Islands. My first and so far only visit here a few years ago still sticks out in my mind in large part due to the incredible beach here.
The crystal-clear water and absolute seclusion I enjoyed here were big pluses, but it’s that snow-like sand that’s capturing my imagination today, fueling dreams of a warm and wonderful TCI white Christmas sometime in the near future…
