Great Stirrup Cay – the Bahamas – part two

Great Stirrup Cay – the Bahamas – part two

Greetings!

In part two of this essay, we present the remaining pictures from Great Stirrup Cay, the first port of call in the Bahamas in November.  The Bahamas lie southeast of Florida in the Atlantic Ocean.

Shallow, blue waters and sandy beaches.

This locale has a relaxed atmosphere far from the pressing problems of the world.  A refreshing, temporary escape for the visitors.

Local rock on these low-lying islands, atolls and cays.  Most of the rock is fossil coral or limestone.

Bacardi is a name of a brand of rum, is it not?  Rum is made from sugar cane.

Why not enjoy a drink and relax in the shade?

These appear to be, what could we call them, small beach huts for shade from the tropical sun.

At the beach, we see scenery of a different kind.

The shallow water and gentle surf invites the guests in to the water.

One can find plenty of space away from the crowds only a short walk away.
