Wow, it’s been a hot second since I’ve updated the blog. I’m thinking about switching some things up/around on here. What do y’all think? Any suggestions? I’d love to hear opinions and thoughts!
I’ve had the same website layout for a little over two years now. Feels like the right time for a tune up for Not Scared of the Sky.
If you keep up with me on Insta then you saw my family and I were just in Turks + Caicos. #ded. It’s a small island in the Bahamas close to Florida. It. Is. Paradise. I’m also convinced it has the cleanest ocean water in the world. (Sorry Laguna)
So, here’s my bit. I’ll leave you to it.
Where to Stay: The Grand Regent Inn
Your personal palace with the prettiest infinity pool you’ve ever seen. Walking around this place will make you feel like you live in a castle from ancient Greece on your own island, not gonna lie.
What to Do: Island Vibes Tour
This is a snorkel and excursion trip where they take you to Iguana Island. Let’s just say the boat ride there has a rooftop with lounge chairs and that’s all you really need to know.

This was my FAV thing we did on the island. 1. Because I love horses. 2. Because you take your horse into the ocean and they swim with you on their back. Double ded. Just watch out for floating turds, cuz they go when they gotta go.
A team of professional riders set you up with your own horse based on your previous riding experience. My sisters and I grew up horseback riding every so often (southern girls for you), so they gave each of us horses with strong personalities. Aka: they like to do their own damn thing. I loved this because it made me feel like my horse knew what was up out there and I could trust him. His name is Patches btw and he’s the best.

Island Fish Fry
Every Thursday night the entire Island joins together for a big block party. Food vendors and companies set up little shops and you walk around trying different drinks and such. There’s also a live band and performances.
Our favorite shop was Coco Vibes where they have coconut water and mixed drinks straight out of the coconut. Each coconut has an imprinted logo for the event and are customizable for whatever- weddings, birthdays, etc. Super cute. Super delicious.

Where to Grub: Seven
If you’re looking for upscale dining, Seven is the spot. It’s inside the 7 Stars Resort but you can eat there without being a guest. They combine they craziest ingredients to make the most interesting and delicious food. To this day, I think this is some of the best food I’ve ever had.
Pizza first. Asian food second. This place was bomb. Family style and heavenly. Everyone was a bit skeptical at first because Asian Cuisine on an island in the Atlantic just didn’t sound right. Chopsticks proved us wrong, though. Very, very wrong. It’s similar to PF Changs, IMO, but spicier.
