There's No Place Like Home......

As mentioned in my previous post, we were off on a little break to Harbour Island in the Bahamas.  I was hoping to see 'The Lone Tree' which had washed ashore years ago during a hurricane, but alas, Hurricane Irene had blown through in August and taken it back!!  So much for a picture under that tree!

It's like the time I went to London and eagerly anticipated visiting the bookstore on Charing Cross Road that was written about in 84 Charing Cross Road........loved that story and movie!!  However, by the time I got there, all I found was a plaque on the side of a pizza restaurant commemorating the well-known shop which had closed years before.

I must say, though, that this visit to Harbour Island was lovely by any standard.  Warm, balmy, picturesque and slow was a perfect place to relax and enjoy two weeks of sun, sightseeing and great food.  And three miles of pink sand beach was pretty spectacular!

The fact that there were virtually no vehicles on the island appealed to us as well......getting around by golf cart, or by foot, was just what we needed......for the first week, we walked and then we rented a golf cart for the second week. 

Trying out the various inns at lunch and dinner was a real treat, as they all have executive chefs, so the food was outstanding.

But, all in all, I was quite happy just wandering around taking pictures of some of the delightful little shops and the array of pastel colored cottages surrounded by white picket fences.  The town of Dunmore is an artist's dream!

But, at the end of the day......there really is 'no place like home'!

Beautiful beach!

Fascinating trees and inviting paths

Ruby - a children's shop

Shine - jewelry and gift shop

Runaway Hill Inn - beautifully located on ocean bluff.
Loved this mosaic mural in the library!
It was a pleasure to meet Jennifer Messier, Ryan and Luc
This inn is owned by former NHLer, Mark Messier
Best meal!

Incredible dining experience in the night garden!

Charming homes and cottages everywhere I looked!

Time for a little break........

Where in the world is this?

It's where I am going on vacation!  Be back soon and I'll have lots of photos and info to share with you!

(Clue:  it blew onto this beach during a hurricane several years ago and now moves around with the waves!)
