Today has been a busy day, for sure.
We made it about halfway to Exuma from Nassau (one-hour flight) before we had to turn back because of a warning light.
So far today I:
Checked into the Palm Bay Beach Club. No high rise here – it’s a bunch of small cottages and huts (I will show you more tomorrow).
Ate breakfast in the shade at Peace & Plenty with an incredible view of the water.
Drove a minivan in the Bahamas – stay left!
Hung out on Tropic of Cancer Beach – located right on the Tropic of Cancer (duh).
Dove/Jumped off the Ferry Bridge (twice), which connects Grand Exuma and Little Exuma.
Took a ferry ride to Stocking Island and snorkeled briefly in a blue hole.
FYI it is only 6 p.m. – that’s quite a day.
I’d love to spill the beans on these adventures – all highly accessible and relatively inexpensive – but I honestly do not have the time currently. It’s time to clean up and head to dinner, enjoy the warm evening (I can see the moon rising from my desk, which I moved in front of the window).
Tomorrow we will cruise down the coast and check out the swimming pigs. Apparently, they swim right up to you when they hear the boat engine.
We will also do some snorkeling and – something I’ve always wanted to do – swim with sharks.
Let’s just hope the pigs don’t follow us into the shark pen – that could get interesting.
