The Marina Resort From Tropical Dreamer (Now Known As Tropical Reality)
16 September 2008 | West End, Bahamas
After walking the dogs on the beach this morning we went to the marina to check it out and to call home to let my parents know we arrived safely. While there we each grabbed a clandestine hot shower which felt wonderful. Then we put the dogs inside the sailboat and headed out just the humans to walk to the local settlement. It was hot and humid and we soon tired. We caught a ride into "town" and had a great lunch at a local restaurant. West West End village isn't much to speak of. It seemed mostly run down and there wasn't a lot happening that we could see. We walked most of the way back to the marina and caught another ride with a boat owner before it became too arduous. Our plan is to enjoy the afternoon and evening here and then head out across the banks tomorrow morning. Don't know when I'll have an internet connection again but I'll update when I do - maybe once more before we leave tomorrow.
