From mid 2012 until mid 2015 Debbie and I travelled extensively and ended up living in a bunch of fun places. None of them ended up working for us as a new home base so eventually we came back to Texas. The Hill Country ended up suiting us just fine. On this blog there are post from the 2012 till the end of 2013. At some point I will finish it with all the additional photos. But for now is a little snapshot into a very fun 12 months.
It’s very still and pretty in the morning. When the island was being developed the developer wanted a lot of water access. To achieve this they created a large network of canals.
I went up to the east end recently just to check it out. It’s quite strange you get to the end of the road that leads east and then if you come down a dirt road to the water you find something that looks like it’s out of a James Bond movie. In fact there is a bone fishing outfit up here that runs a whole bunch of boats out of this enclosed dock area. The resort is across the water on a small island nearby and this compound is just for the boats. Small power boats and larger fishing boats that run out into the many small islands scattered around the east and fish for snapper and other bone fish. Apparently the fishing is great and this is one of the more popular destinations for the island even though it is very remote. The photo of our Jeep shows it parked a few feet from the eastern tip of the Grand Bahama island.
Debbie, Buster and I went and checked out another beach today. It was really wow-worthy. Of course you expect ample wow-ness when you are going to the beach in the Bahamas, but some are over touristy and medium wow, and others are super-wow. I would put this one at about 9.5 on the wow scale. When I post it’s always a struggle to pick the best photos. I hope you will enjoy this selection.

We are loving our new house. Somehow we seem to time everything a bit off. We settled on the bahamas right at the start of summer. It is baking hot, a lot like Florida. The thing about Florida is that the heat and humidity is only worth it if you have easy access to the water. Since we have a beach that is 5 minutes walk and a canal right outside the apartment complete with a wide selection of boats we are in pretty good shape. Here are some more photos of our new digs. click any thumbnail to see a larger image.
