We actually walked down to the "local village" a little strip just beyond the official port area, but not really very adventurous.

The Grand Turk cruise port had added an NASA exhibit because the Mercury program used it as a splash down area. I was looking forward to seeing some good archival photos of "back in the day". During the 80's my boss had been site manager at GT during the Mercury program and had all the only phone around. At one point he had all 7 Mercury astronauts in his office. Alas, the display was rather pedestrian.
