Every year, we take a Spring Break vacation with our closest friends. And every year, we spend several months researching houses to rent. We have two important criteria -- it must be as far from neighboring houses as possible and it must be on the beach. This year, we succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. We booked a week at a house on Bonefish Bay on Andros Island, Bahamas.
This picture, taken by Janet as we were flying back to Nassau after a week on the island, shows how isolated we actually were. If you enlarge the picture, you can see our house on a sand spit in the upper right hand corner of the photo, with water on two sides and no other houses for miles. It was bliss!
Brian and I spent a day in Nassau before we headed to Andros. While we were waiting for our luggage, I was drawn to this piece of fiber art. Very cool!
And we had dinner at a beach-side shack.
We met our friends the next morning at the airport and flew to Andros. This is Andros International Airport.
The house was lovely. It had beautiful views of the sunrise over the bay and the sunset over the mangrove estuary. And lots of porches and decks to enjoy the view.
And the shallow tidal pools were full of sea creatures. Conch....
And of course the elusive bonefish. None of us got a good picture of a bonefish. They move too fast!
