Bahamas May 2010

by on Jul.18, 2010, under Happenings

Joyce and I flew from Hilton Head, SC to Fort Pierce. Fl and refueled then on to North Eleuthera. We then took the ferry to the Rock House hotel on Harbor island, which turned out to be a great place to stay, with a great dining room and view of the inner harbor.

We explored Harbor Island by golf cart, pink sand beaches, interesting typical Caribbean habitat, good food, and a laid back atmosphere that fit perfectly.

Harbor Town, was fun to see, with typical Caribbean houses, a conch warf and the great clear water surrounding us.

We enjoyed Harbor town, saw the sites and the pink sand and all the local atmosphere. We would return.

It was now time to fly to Stella Maria, which is due south.

Cape Santa Maria, turned out to be a excellent resort destination, with a spectacular beach. We then rented a car a explored the island heading south to the blue hole. I dived on the blue hole off of Belize and I should have known, if you have seen one blue hole you have seen them all, but it was an interesting drive.

The highlight of the drive was Max’s Conch shop, just north of the Blue Hole. Max prepared conch salad, and we had a bottle of the local beer and life was good.

We then hung out on the perfect beach enjoyed the food and Cape Santa Maria and met some nice people, before flying back on Saturday May 8th to Fort Lauderdale to spend a day with Jennifer, Mike and Alexandra.

On our way over the Exumas we made a note to visit George Town on our next trip. The Bahamas, are beautiful and we will return.

Grand Ma brought a finger nail painting kit, and that was a hit with Alexandra.

Alexandra showed us all her costumes from her recent visit to Disney World, which was impressive, particularly the wigs. We had a great time with Mike and Jennifer and Alexandra, dinner at one of our favorite Fort Lauderdale restaurants and then on Sunday flew back to Hilton Head, a good week.
