Recently I was in the Bahamas for a few days staying with my father on Harbor Island. Harbor Island is just 2 miles East of Eleuthera. In case you are interested here is nice link to a map of Eleuthera.
Harbor Island is a bit for the jet set (which I am not). It has very famous spectacular pink sand beaches and some pretty darn good restaurants. The water surrounding the island is just a beautiful blue and indigo. I guess Harbor Island is kind of the St. Barts of the Bahamas.
Steven Pinkert and his father took their boat to Staniel Cay which is in the Bahamian Exuma Island chain. Staniel Cay’s fame is the Thunderball Cave where the 1965 James Bond movie was filmed. It is still quite beautiful to snorkel in this cave and I highly recommend it. Staniel has a yacht club – a small quiet resort island.
Steven Pinkert Meets the Pigs
But on way to Staniel we passed an island that was incredible. There were pigs on the beach and as we sailed by they actually swam out to meet, eat and greet our boat. It is quite an amazing thing to see. Here is good a link to an excellent you tube video taken by a vacationer. Swimming Pig Video. I will post some of my photos of the pigs shortly.
Steven Pinkert says “if you are in the Exumas – don’t miss seeing the pigs”
