We have arrived in the Bahamas for our long overdue 2 week honeymoon! We’re currently in Eleuthera at a charming little resort called Coco di Mama. Dirk, Dj and Carlo visited this resort exactly 5 years ago on a very similar Bahama adventure. It is incredible! The color of the water is like one I have never seen before. There are only 12 rooms at this resort and it’s currently full. We’re lucky we were able to get a room. The staff and other guests are very warm and friendly.
The flying has been…..relatively good. I can’t lie though, it freaks me out every time. I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to it. We met an older couple here (LaVerne and Bill) and they have their own airplane and have been flying around like this for the past 17 years. They live in New Mexico and this is their first time to the Bahamas. We will likely run into them again in the Exumas (Staniel Cay). They are an inspiration to Dirk…..and should also be an inspiration to me!
We heard there is a surf spot on the Atlantic side of the island, so we must find it today. We’ve also been given some great tips on where to get an awesome burger. There is an OTT (over-the-top) resort called Sky Beach located 10 minutes down the road from where we’re staying. Apparently this resort has a beautiful infinity pool that you can use if you dine there, and the beach is supposed to be spectacular. You can swim with the dolphins in the wild there!
We also learned of a cool little dive bar where we can hear live Bahamian music…..Lenny Kravitz’s band! Lenny owns a home here and his recording studio is also here. Apparently his band plays every Tuesday night at this place called Elvina’s.
We’re planning to head to the Exumas either Wednesday or Thursday, weather dependent.
For now, feast your eyes on these. Most of these pics were taken in Treasure Cay (Abaco) and Freeport (Grand Bahama)!
PS – The fresh lobster salad was to die for!!!
Will try to update as we go!
Lots of love,
