Every Thursday, I will be posting a photo from my travels. Today’s Photo Thursday is from the island of Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands. It was a windy day so the waves were large. My family and I hiked out past the lighthouse on the northern tip of the island. As we approached the end of the trail, we were greeted with this view of the coastline and sea. This short trail is located just past the island’s lighthouse.
The island is the near where NASA astronaut John Glenn landed after becoming the first American to orbit Earth in the Mercury spacecraft Friendship 7. There is a replica of the ship outside the airport.
