Water Cay, Turks and Caicos

This global warming is really starting to get annoying...after a couple of nice warm sunny days, we are back to the rainy cold season with snow forecasts...i wish it at least made up its mind for once, be it hot or be it cold...such overnight changes are totally putting me down...
well, on days like these i feel not one bit like getting out of the house (unless really necessary)...I dont even feel like going to the PO, which really means i dont feel like getting out :)
But we're gonna brighten it all up with some great cards with the first one coming from a totally new country...and WHAT a country!!! Turks and Caicos!! Written and stamped! I was honestly in absolute disbelief when i received it...its like one of those times when you are having some amazing dream, and in the zenith of your enjoyment the alarm clock wakes you up and you realize it never happened...but here, this card was actually real and i was REALLY holding it in my hands and all i could do was just scream my lungs out of pure excitement...but of course, living in an urban area I couldnt really afford doing that, so i was just screaming inside myself...I think you know what I am talking about :)

Well, something about the card of course..which shows Water Cay, one of the several Cays along the coasts of Turks and Caicos, where most of them are uninhabited, this one included (only Pine Cay and Parrot Cay are inhabited). As for Water Cay, this island is part of the Princes Alexandra National Park and is sanctuary for Turks and Caicos Islands Rock Iguanas and ospreys. Tourists from the adjacent islands often come here to picnic. The iguanas are demonstrative and visitors are asked not to feed them and to remove all items brought while visiting this island. Secluded, calm anchorage's can be found between Little Water Cay, Mangrove Cay and Donna Cay.

I would be more than happy if one day I get the chance to visit at least one of these Cays, esp. during the cold annoying winter days.

the stamp is from a set of 13 definitives issued in 2007, showing shells.

The warmest and wholehearted Thank You to Glenn and his family for this little treasure of a postcard!
