Tahiti Beach - beautiful and mostly deserted
Fred emerges from a swim
We made some good use of my camera's self-timer - dinner at the cottage.
More fun with the self timer
Slipaway Cottage - Elbow Cay, Abaco
Flight to Marsh harbor, taxi to ferry, ferry to Hope Town where our hostess picked us up. 3 mile drive over narrow roads that degenerated into a caliche path - at the end of which was our cottage.
"Slipaway" is every bit as lovely as it appears on its web-site. Rearranged the furniture so we could wake to the sun rising over the Atlantic. big surf here - colors ranging from cobalt blue to aquamarine to Aphrodite green to the palest of sea foam.
Late afternoon - we jumped back in Hector and made the short drive over to Tahiti Beach - supposedly one of the finest in the Bahamas. Very few people there enjoying it. We picked a spot out of the wind and poured more rum punch for happy hour phase III. Meaningful conversation. Fred went for a dip and saw a huge leopard ray.
We headed back to the cottage when it started to get chilly and Fred whipped us up some tasty pasta, served with a nice merlot. The cottage is small but with the furinture rearranged, there was still plenty of room for a dance floor and he had brought just the right selection of cd's. Early to bed for the best night's sleep I had had all week.
I love this place.
Fred does watercolors... this is one of them.
