Eleuthera, Bahamas

April 2007

A group of intrepid explorers along with Linda and I made the trip to the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas in April 2007. We stayed at the beach house built in the 1960s by the founder of Pan American Airways, Juan Trippe. The house is situated on a hill overlooking the Atlantic and the 18th green of an old Robert Trent Jones golf course. It is in the once grand community called the Cotton Bay Resort. That's not to say it's not nice today, it is indeed. But you can see once upon a time it was the place for movers and shakers. It was a grand trip whose memories will be cherished for a long time.

We rented a car from Dave. The paperwork was a simple copy of a form he used. And I don't think he even required a driver's license. Food varied from local lobster to conch and dolphin. At one place when we called ahead for dinner they said they had a 2.25 lb lobster. Turned out it was just a tail that weighed that much. Boy was it good. And it was only about $20.

A great place to visit! Wonderful people, awesome scenery, and great food. The rum punch was not bad either.
