    My Trip Report

    Here with my lovely S and four other couples for a fifth couple's blissful destination wedding in T&C.

    We're here for 7 days.

    Uneventful flight out of LaGuardia Airport via American Airlines with a connection through Charlotte, NC.

    That's me and S in the foreground and the happy couple J and B in the background.

    It was only a short 20 minute drive from the airport to Leeward where our villa was located. The five bedroom compound is very sweet and the views of the canal are unreal.

    On the drive over I already saw a casino. We plan to check it out but probably won't be doing much gambling on the island this week.

    I hope to keep this TR interesting.

    A run to the supermarket for food for the week. Needless to say groceries are hella expensive here.

    Got back from the Casablanca casino in Grace Bay. Reports of the casinos being shady are sort of accurate; some patrons are lookyloos who have busted out and are just loitering.

    I lost a $800 buying on craps but made it back on BJ. 3 10-500 tables and one $25-800 table; S17, 3:2.

    Up $150 for the trip. GF lost $200 on various .01 sluts but stole $40 from me and turned it into $150.

    We probably won't return there.

    Those goggles ducked and leaked. But what did they expect?

    All packed and ready to head for the airport. We all had a blast here and will definitely return. We didn't even see 2/3 of the island what there is to offer here.

    Here's another pic of Taylor Bay.

    This is a canal that abuts our villa. In it we saw barracuda and a nurse shark!

    [​IMG]

    In the shallow waters we saw a live sting ray, crabs, fishes, and this star fish.



    We stopped by Caicos Royal Casino last night. Another small casino (even smaller than the Casablanca). 4 bj tables 10-100 3:2 S17. 2 $2 roulette tables and some (40-45) slots. No craps. Drink service was very good but watered down.
