Culture Vulturing

An evening and a day well-spent on land, as we bounce around in Elizabeth Harbour. It’s the Cultural Heritage Festival here in George Town this weekend – with constant celebrations. Last night included a “Junkanoo” (musical parade), a great band and delicious Bahamian fare of all kinds.

Today we took a trip with other cruisers to see Great Exuma by bus, and had a fabulous lunch with entertainment at Exuma Point restaurant, part-way. A highlight was a walk to a beach cave which had been inhabited by a hermit from the US for 25 years, before he became ill and had to go back to the States. There are some pics below of his cave home, with cooking pots, etc. still in place.

Tomorrow the wind is settling a bit – so we’re planning to sail up the island and then back to Sandal’s Emerald Bay Marina where we might spend a couple of nights. More anon …
