Not much time now but short answer is they did such a nice job of building a high end resort and preserving the island feeling. Wood structures ( see pic ) as opposed to concrete and glass at Scrub Island, lots of vegetation and of coarse I like their hammock on the beach ! LOL

It is only about 8 to 15 ft deep and that beautiful aqua colored water. Really nice. Then from there another 50 mile deep water but somewhat protected crossing to Nassau.

Here are a few Bimini Bay Resort pics. Laptop goes where Bob goes. LOL Gotta stay connected.
Gotta zoom in on MapPoint!

No time. I did think about driving her back to FL but in the end decided to ship. It is much easier on the return w the easterly trade winds behind you but our summer is so short in Canada figured I better get back up here and enjoy it while I can. Seems like I have been away a lot this year.

Default Time for some more fun pics

I've met some great, fun loving people in the islands. Looking forward to returning later in the year.
