DOCKED AT TURTLE COVE MARINA IN PROVIDENCIALES
SUNRISE AT PROVIDENCIALES: 6: 30 AM
SUNSET AT PROVIDENCIALES: 5:27 PM
Putting aside our boat chores we made this a day of play. John and Sandi took us to the boatyard to see their Hatteras receiving the finishing touches on-the-hard before dropping her back into the water tomorrow (maybe). All the HATS are so similar but each on is unique unto itself too. HANCO is longer and wider than QUEST with an outside passage from bow to stern.

When it comes to location, da Conch Shack and Rum Bar in Blue Hills occupies the primo location. Nestled under the palms and right on the beach it is a “must see” spot on Provo. They serve fresh conch every way you can think of and then some ways I never even dreamed of. After they “knock” the conch (remove it from the shell) and clean it, they start use the fine meat to prepare conch fritters, conch chowder, conch salad ceviche style and a scrumptious curried conch. Try it, you’ll like it!! Add a glass of Jan’s Infamous Rum Punch or a local Turks Head Beer and you are all set!

After eating all that conch we made a stop at one of the island's jewelry stores to see a conch pearl. These beauties are usually elongated and range in color from an off white to pale pink to a rosy color. Since environmental issues and over harvesting are drastically deleting the Caribbean conch, the normally rare occurrence of a conch pearl forming is now even more drastically reduced.
