Hello, Bimini Islands!

After arriving in the Bahamas, we couldn’t wait to start exploring! The few photos and video below tell the tale of our ten days in the Bimini Islands & Gun Cay: beautiful anchorages, a forgotten marina with plenty to discover, the Fountain of Youth, free-diving shipwrecks, a trip up Peacemaker’s mast and more…

Anchor down in Nixon’s Harbor (South Bimini) after our 24-hour sail from Marathon, FL… TFAB (time for a beer)!

Trying a new local fruit from a fruit stand in Alice Town, called tamarind. It’s a soft, sticky ‘cigar’ of fruit around smooth, brown, pebble-like seeds inside a thin, dry pea pod – and the fruit tastes like Sour Patch Kids!

We were the only ones on this long stretch of lovely beach along the west side of South Bimini.

The famed “Fountain of Youth”, discovered by Ponce de Leon way back in the day. (I’m guessing this is a replica… but we drank from it anyway – just in case!)
