Beauuuuuuutiful Bahamas...

I hope everyone was ok with that small PINK plane trip... "Here we are at a place called Fernandez Bay Village here on Cat Island which is extremely isolated and there isn't much to do but sit in the sun and relax. The resort has a telephone, but the desk phone is the only one in the compound. There are no televisions and American mobile phones don't work here.Cat Island is 40 miles long and two miles wide and it's home to only 1,000 people."

Let's hop in our jeep with our FAB tour guide Paul of Kitchen and Residential Design... Drive safely and slow so we can take in all the beauty! Paul says "Cat Island, The Bahamas is one of my favorite places on earth." Be prepared look at this view ALL WEEKEND LONG... I know it's tough... but someone has to do it... why not let it be us! Paul says, "The waters of the Bahamas defy description and the pace of life is something that has to be experienced to be believed." I hope you have your beach entire... Here is some of the beautiful vegetation... Seagrape and Stick Wall...
Poinciana...
Mangrove...
Lone Pine...
Look at this scenery... GORGEOUS... Limestone Cliffs...
Inhabitants of the island the "Leezard"...
Don't be alarm if one of these beautiful hermit crabs should crawl upon your towel... they are harmless...Enjoy the hammocks... this guy appears to be loving life... who can blame him... let's find a lovely spot of our own to lounge too...
"Fernandez Bay consists of a string of thatched roofed, stone cottages that sit along a secluded beach. There's a club house in the center of the compound where everybody eats meals together. There's a bar and a gift shop attached to the club house and each of them works on the honor system, no lie." Here is the Club House...
Casual dining attire...Not sure about these heels in the sand... hmmmm... either bag would be fine...aaaaah... RELIEF... flat sandals were packed too..."Every bedroom in every villa faces the sea and to slip into crisp sheets at the end of a long day is heaven. Falling asleep to the sound of the gentle lapping of the waves is sublime." Here is a painting of the stone cottage where we will be staying...
Now that we are settled in... I'm going to wiggle my toes in that gorgeous water...Don't forget to check in with Beverly and her PINK SATURDAY participants today too... you wouldn't want to miss out on all the FAB PINK posts of the day!

THANK YOU SO MUCH to Paul and all his "quoted words" of enchantment! You don't have to ask moi twice to hang out on Cat Island... LOVING it!

I am loving the plane ride especially since the plane is my favorite color....who knew that the pilot would by so adorable...does he get to stay too?

I packed my polka dot bikini and best straw hat, we southerners don't like too much sun on our faces. I wonder if that cute boy who flew us here will be serving cosmos on the beach?

So lovely...what a glorious retreat....what time does everyone get here?

Oh, how I love this! And the pink plane is as cute as can be. There is nothing on this earth as beautiful as the water in the Caribbean with the possible exception of the pink inside a conch shell.

Thanks, Fifi, and Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Cat Island is pure perfection, I grew up spending so many, many weekends on that delightful beautiful island.
The seaplane to get there or by our boat, its was a greatly anticpated time of fun with everyone on the island who are family.

Kathleen Ellis said...

Hi FiFi,
Just doing a little blog hopping today, & decided to click on an older post. Boy did I choose the right one. It's been over 25 years since I was last in the Bahamas, but I neer tire of looking at beautiful pictures of them.

Happy day!
