There’s a cute little restaurant on the beach near our place that has live Jazz musicians performing every Sunday. So we went by and thoroughly enjoyed a due of a great keyboardist and sax player, along with some great food and drinks. Here’s a short clip. A little Jazz on the Beach
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.

Where we are living is right on one of the canals not far from Banana Bay. The owner here is a boat lover and owns or has access to 4 boats of varying size and types. There is a kayak and a row boat, then an open sailboat, a powerboat and an ocean going sailboat. The sailboat is serious, it could handle trans-atlantic no problem if your into that kind of thing and have the time! Anyhow with the water being the big attraction here its great to have some access. I am Captain of the kayak so far, but I am working my way up.

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.

Relaxing After a Long Trip
As you probably can see, Buster is exhausted after a 3,600 mile car trip travelling coast to coast across the Continental US. I have to say that Buster is the 4th dog that Debbie and I have had over the last decade or two and is by far the most wonderful. He is amazing in car travel. As soon as the car starts moving he flops down and passes out into a deep sleep. As soon as the car stops moving, no matter how many hours later, he immediately wakes up, sits up and starts looking around. He does enjoy his nap time as you can see in the photo. Truth be told all of us were a bit worn out from travelling and very glad to get to our new destination.

Oh No! Wayne & Debbie have gone completely Bahamas!
People are asking- What on earth are they doing?
Well, we had a 6 month lease in Baja California and decided not to renew. The food was great (and inexpensive) and the views were spectacular. It allowed easy access to US shopping and health care providers. And we had a great 6 months there. Really, it was fantastic in many ways.
But in the end, we decided we wanted to try different areas and so while we may go back, we decided to make a change.
Any it was a lot of work let me tell you. When we went down to Baja we took a ton of stuff. A decent sized trailer packed with stuff. So we carefully packed everything up, and we drove it all back up to San Antonio and put it all back in our storage. Quite a gig actually. There was one stop that by chance gave some great photos and I will post them soon. Then drove cross country again and parked our faithful Subi in Ft Lauderdale. It was an unreal number of miles. Anyhow. this way if we want to go to Ft Lauderdale or Miami for shopping we will have a vehicle ready to roll.
So yes, it’s yet another change of residence. We will be here for about 6 months. We are accepting reservations from close friends to come visit. The weather is cool and mild right now- fabulous really.
OK, more posts coming including our new place and latest adventures.
Meantime Debbie and Buster are toughing it out, as you can see here:
