Today gave us wonderful insight to the island of Eleuthera. We began the day sharing breakfast and taking in the beautiful view of the ocean from our porch.
After getting ready, Vince from one Eleuthera and his wife gave up their Sunday to show us all around the island, giving us the opportunity to complete our windshield survey. From pink-painted health clinics to quaint little homes and convenience stores, we were offered a glimpse of what life is like for the Bahamian people.
We stopped at the Queen’s bath, a collection of pools of water alongside the Atlantic, and took in the most stunning views the ocean with all the various shades of blue. We continued our journey up the island to preachers cave and across the way to a beautiful beach with the finest sand you have ever seen.
After lots of sun and strolls along the beach we worked our way back down the island. We stopped at the glass window, where you can see the stark contrast between the deep blue Atlantic Ocean and the turquoise Caribbean Sea. We returned to our home in Tarpum Bay pretty exhausted but not ready for the day to end quite yet.
After a yummy dinner, we were greeted outside by Vince’s son and a friend who had picked coconuts off a tree and cut them open for us so we could drink fresh coconut milk. What a treat!
We took a stroll down the Queen’s highway to the pier and enjoyed the wonderful ocean breeze and breathtaking sunset. We are so thrilled that the week has only just begun and couldn’t have asked for a better first day in Eleuthera.
