A fun article about finding dolphins and celebrities in the Turks & Caicos:

TURKS & CAICOS, British West Indies -- "Ring the bell if you see JoJo the dolphin." We saw that sign nailed up near Hemingway's on the Beach. It's a wonderful beach, the big one at Providenciales Island--12 miles long, powdery sand, water clear as the vodka-on-the-rocks at the next table.

All during lunch, the little bell never rang. Our Hemingway's waitress said she saw JoJo regularly, "sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the afternoon."

Every islander we met said something like that about JoJo, one of the most famous celebrities on and about this string of islands 575 miles southeast of Miami and 48 miles south of the Bahamas.

Celebrity sighting is one of the minor sports in the Turks & Caicos (kay-kus), because the rich and famous have made their presence known in and around such resorts as Parrot Cay. One day, we toured that vicinity by boat.
