  • A Tale of Two Pirates January 1, 2004 By Anthony Sweeting Most of the men who made up the West Indies pirate fraternity were rough, crude and uneducated.

  • A Reflection of Character September 1, 2003 French Riviera Condominiums By Kathy Borsuk Photo by Jean Philippe Alonso Jean Philippe (“J.P.”) Alonso could be described as an island “character.” He first came to the Turks & Caicos Islands nearly a decade ago to hunt for treasure in shipwrecks off the Silver Banks.

  • Sharing a Secret: Harbour Club Villas & Marina September 1, 2003 By Kathy Borsuk ~ Photos by Marta Morton I love secrets. Unfortunately, on a small island, there aren’t many to be found.

  • Crab A Lil’ Attitude September 1, 2003 By Marsha Pardee Feelin’ crabby — like your head is bunched between your shoulders and you want to pinch somebody else’s head off?

  • Road Work Ahead September 1, 2003 By Kathy Borsuk It’s hard to believe that Leeward Highway, that well traveled stretch of road connecting one end of Providenciales with the other, is almost 25 years old.
