¨Using an airboat (propelled by a huge car-engine-driven fan) as my magic carpet ride, we ventured out on the flat banks of South Caicos to catch the elusive bonefish. Armed with a headset for ear protection to offset the near deafening engine located directly behind us, we glide through the remote shallow turquoise waters with the expert angler team Beyond the Blue, led by owner Bibo Jayne. Not only did we catch (and release) many bonefish that day on our exhilarating airboat adventure, this eco-friendly way of fishing was highly considerate as we didn’t impact the natural environment and habitat of the fish.
As our airboat ventured back along the pristine flats and mangroves, I consciously took a mental “travel snapshot” of a flock of pink flamingos that abruptly took flight. So grateful to have captured this and countless other moments not just for the show but stored in my memory bank to enjoy the rest of my life.¨
