As I depart the island of Eleuthera, I can’t help but ponder its similarities as well as its differences to the Exumas. Like with any “love affair”, whether it be the make of car, a brand of clothes, a relationship, or an island in this case, it’s incredibly hard to keep an open mind about … Continue reading Eleuthera vs Exuma
After visiting Exuma 7 times just last year, I thought maybe I should start traveling elsewhere. It hasn't lost its luster, I just need to spread my proverbial wings a bit. My new goal is to visit at least one new island every year. Should that include a visit to Exuma here and there, then … Continue reading Provo Bound! (not Utah)
Pull (left). Pull (right). Pull (left). Pull (right). This would become my new mantra for the next 3.5 days. Little did I know just how much “pulling” I would do during this kayaking trip and how my old crossfit days would come back to haunt me. I knew my body was capable of pushing harder … Continue reading Kayaking the Exumas – Day 1
I left you hanging. Sorry. But although the rest of my boat trip through the Exuma Cays was just as epic as the others, it covered much of what I have already written about. So I didn’t want to bore you with the same details over and over again. I made some great new friends … Continue reading How Much is a Trip to Exuma?
Dare I say that today was the perfect day when it’s only my second full day in the Exumas? We shall see. The goal for this trip was to see and experience places on the island that I have never been to. Check! I did visit Coco Plum beach during my first trip but it … Continue reading Best beach, big hair, even bigger earrings.
I’m baaaaaaaaack. I couldn’t be happier to be back in Exuma and clearly I can’t get enough of this place. In 2013, I fell in love with these islands even after the disastrous weather I experienced for 9 days straight. I gave it another chance and damn am I glad I did. This is now … Continue reading It’s Regatta Time!!!
Sorry when Rosemary calls for me, I give her my full attention. I appreciate and soak up every minute I get to spend listening to her speak. So back to where I left off... I was describing my lunch, how ravenous I was, and how I ate enough to feed a young hippo. After lunch, … Continue reading Touring the Magnificent Exuma Cays Cont’d
I'm not even sure where to start with my day but perhaps I will break it into a few parts as to not overwhelm you with too much vicarious excitement in one blog post. The day started at 7:30 when we had to meet the bus for the Four C's Exuma Cays tour at Exuma … Continue reading Touring the Magnificent Exuma Cays
Holy perfect weather!!! I knew when I got here that there was a reef right in the front yard of the house but I had not yet had the opportunity to check it out due to weather conditions. Today, there was barely a gust and the water was like glass. The perfect opportunity to check … Continue reading Snorkel Adventure in the Front Yard
Yay for lazy days!!! Sometimes having nothing to do is fantastic! However, when you suffer from FOMO, lazy days can turn into early mornings and/or late nights. Today was another early morning but not a "watch the sunrise" early morning. There is so much to see on the harbour I'm afraid I might miss something … Continue reading Lazy day at Stocking Island
