Hey Everyone! I know I know its been a long time. We've been in the exumas for a while and theres no internet down there but it is beautiful! i cant remember what i said in the last blog but since eluethra we caught our first fish and many after the first one though was the biggest fish. brendan held it up and it went from his eyes to his ankles big dolphin! it put up a good fight too almost an hour trying to wheel it in! ill put the picks up they do more justice then words! so i think the last time i wrote we were in the abacos still. since then we traveld down to eluethra. it was nice but were not gonna go there next year. although we saw old port royal, all the ruins from that! that was pretty cool. then we traveld down to the exumas. its suppost to be a real remote place not alot of people there but there was alot of cruisers. we went and saw all the iguana on allens cay, went down to normans cay where the big drug hideout was for carlos. if youve seen the movie blow

You haven't partied until....
you've stopped at Harbour Island off the Northern tip of Eleuthera. I lived there for over three years where I owned a sports bar. The bar isn't there anymore but there are a few other good bars there....Seagrapes, Willys, The Vicum, and Gusty's. The island is small, three miles long by 1/2 a mile wide, but beautiful, friendly and so much fun. Also, you should check out the Glass Window Bridge on Eleuthera. The beach on H.I. is the best pink sand beach in the world.
