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.
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.
