The next part of our Bahama Cruise was to a private island. Reading some history of this place, it was originally called Little San Salvador. It was purchased in 1997 by Holland American Line. It is a wild bird reserve and tourist play spot.

The cruise ship drops anchor and a tender comes to take you ashore.

Welcome! Thank you, glad we made it!

P1080519

Not sure if this was a real fort or not?

Waiting to catch a bus to the other side of the island for some adventure!

The upper right of this map is our destination.

The bus dropped us off and now we are waiting for our tour guide to give us an ecological tour. I’m so excited!

And the roosters in the tree are excited!

And we are off – heading towards land over yonder.

Nice group of us on the tour. Kathy kept them smiling. I will say though, it is a little hard kayaking in a two person kayak. I kept hitting Kathy’s paddle.

About here is where the guy next to us fell out of his kayak.

Everyone was picking him up and holding him (or her).

Under our feet were thousands of these jelly fish. Our guide picks one up and says, don’t worry, they won’t sting you. Well, it stung this little girl that was with her father. He was pissed and she was pretty much done for the rest of the journey. Poor kid.

After kayaking we headed to the beach for a while. Rental bungalows.

A bar disguised as a pirate ship. Is nothing sacred?

DSCI0073

My sentiments exactly.

Time to just chill and enjoy…

…or you can swim out and watch your girlfriend look for sea glass.

P1080540

Walked around some; this guy was making a lot of noise.

P1080533

Interesting but kind of weird.

P1080530

The only thing you should leave when visiting a place like this…

DSCI0072

We leave you in peace.

Nice night to snuggle on deck and watch Jason Bourne! Yes!
