COMMENT: Beach House- – DOCKED – Nassau Harbour Club Marina, Nassau – Bahamas

We had a nice few days at the decadence of Atlantis; a bit overwhelming. We moved back around to the east side of
Nassau Harbour – now on New Providence Island (main island). We had to go all the way round as we are just too close a fit for the two
bridges. We also had to stand by for a cruise ship, “Enchantment of the Sea”.

The digs aren’t anywhere near as plush, but less than 1/2 the price! Starbux, wifi and a nice supermarket are right across the street.

Upon recommendation from Mike Lonnes, we’re now docked at Disneyland – Bahamas!…:-)

We’ll stay two nights as it’s expensive as a modest hotel and then move to another anchorage/marina.
We haven’t been at a nice dock in several weeks, so it’s a treat.

COMMENT: Beach House- ANCHORED – Allan’s & Leaf Cays, Exumas – Bahamas

We motored around the Highbourne Rocks reef and into the anchorage between Allan’s & Leaf Cays.
We immediately saw the local Iguana’s come out to great us. Yes…they are very used to being fed.
Right after we arrived a huge “cigarette boat” (right out of Miami Vice) arrived with 20 tourists who fed them
grapes on a stick!

Apparently they were on all the islands at one time, but may have become food for the local folks.
“Iwan” comes from the Lucayan language for lizard – hence the Spanish-ized “Iguana”. Very fun, lots of photos.

Now back at Highbourne Cay anchorage. Dinner ashore tonight with “Icaros” and off to Nassau tomorrow.
It will be culture shock…:-)
