With your guys' help, we had a wonderful week-long stay at the Gansevoort in July. Now, we're less than a month away from our 2nd trip to the island, and this time we're taking my parents! We're staying in a villa in Silly Creek. So, that'll be a new experience.
I have a few of questions:
1. We're there for a week. 2 of the days my parents will be doing 1/2 day scuba excursions and 2 of the days my dad will be doing bonefishing in the morning. So, that really only leaves 2 completely open days. I'm not the type that would want to book a full week's worth of activities, and I'm trying to decide between two things for one of those days: an Island Vibes excursion or the trip to North/Middle Caicos. We did the IV excursion when we were there and LOVED it (which is why we want to take my rents). We didn't do the North/Middle Caicos trip because we told ourself, "We'll do that next time." So, I guess what I'm asking is, is the North/Middle Caicos trip a must-do? And if so, how long does the total trip take?
2. Will there be any lobster grills going on in January? If so, where?
3. I'm a little sad we're not staying on Grace Bay and, after we got back from our July trip, we seriously considered cancelling on our villa and staying on GB with my parents. That said, we do want to take them to walk GB a couple of times, and we also want to take them to snorkle Bight and eat at Somewhere. So, here are my two questions for this: First, what hotels along GB will allow you to park if you aren't staying there? We should be okay at both the Gansevoort and Coral Gardens, right? And, if we do this on one of the days when my parents snorkel in the morning, will their snorkel equipment be safe in the car while we explore GB?
Thanks so much! Can't wait to get back. I know that I'm doing myself more harm than good by asking this, but are there any semi-reliable extended forecasts to look at?
