A Too Short Visit
30 January 2013
Jack and Ann left us yesterday after a lightning fast (so it seemed) visit to Harbor Island in Eleuthera. Pictured here, with George and End (on left) who we all met during last year's visit to Georgetown.
We have been very pleasantly surprised by Harbor Island. There is an intimidation factor in that one needs to hire a pilot to navigate the route from Spanish Wells. However, we have saved the track on our GPS and will attempt the return trip on our own.
Also, it is a pretty swank place, so we were not expecting it to be as comfortable or affordable as other Bahamian islands. And while there are plenty of places with very high prices, we have found a number of very reasonably priced eateries. And a bar that has the lowest beer price we have ever found in the Bahamas.
In addition to touring the island and dining around, we had a fabulous dinner at George and Enid's house with a wonderful group of their friends who we will see again tonight.
We will leave Harbor Island tomorrow, but have made no decision yet on how we make our way south. We could do more Eleuthera cruising, visiting spots on the way down that we missed on the trip north, and then onto Cat Island. Or go to the Northern Exumas before going to Cat. Time and weather will tell.
