Our 2 night stay in Eleuthera at CocodiMama has been fantastic!  Eleuthera has a lot to offer…everything from high class, corporate luxury to unique, boutique, Mom & Pop comfort and charm  — all served up in an unpretentious atmosphere.  Of the 3 islands we’ve visited so far, this one has been my favorite.

Unfortunately, we didn’t make it to Elvina’s for Lenny’s band on Tuesday night, but the good thing is that we will have another opportunity for it on our way back.  We also weren’t lucky enough to see and swim with the dolphins at Sky Beach.  The wind has been really strong the past couple of days, which is probably why they didn’t come around.  The Sky Beach Club was really nice though.  A must if you’re ever in the area!

We spent half a day on Harbour Island where the only mode of transportation on the island is via golf cart.  That was a blast!  And by the way, have I mentioned that they drive on the opposite side of the road here in the Bahamas?  Believe it or not, it’s pretty easy to get used to.

Ate a lot more conch salad on Harbour Island too.  The locals often encourage the consumption of conch because they say it’s an aphrodisiac.  The saying goes — “It puts strength in your back and it’s an aphrodisiac!”

Our plan was to land in Staniel Cay in the Exumas yesterday, but landing at runway 34 with winds at 20 knots out of 070 degrees prevented us from being able to land there (wind sock standing perpendicular to the runway!).  Dirk made the approach twice, but had to abort and go around.  Yay for safety!  We diverted to Exuma International and little did we know what surprises were in store for us there!  Stay tuned for details on our stay in Great Exuma…

    I’m LOVING these honeymoon updates! I love the pictures. I’m thinking of adding “can fly a plane” to my list of new husband requirements.
