Not That I'm Planning to...

But, If I Was to Leave the Raleigh, Cary, Apex Area...

Lighthouse Beach, Eleuthera

OK, my dear readers, before you get your kilts all up in a bunch, I am NOT leaving the Raleigh, Cary, Apex area any time soon!

But, if I was...

I'd definitely consider moving to the remote Bahamian island of Eleuthera!

Even though we just returned from our much needed vacation, my girlfriend Christy and I are already making plans to go back.

Eleuthera is absolutely gorgeous.

The beaches, the snorkeling, the people... all spectacular!

We got to fly first class...

First class! The only way to fly!

We rented a house on the water...

Finiterre - Our home away from home in Eleuthera!

A beat up old Jeep to get around...

Hey, the AC workedd and it started every day!

Took in some "cultural" activities!!!

Kalik - The beer of the Bahamas!

Watched a tornado come and go in about 5 minutes...

Run Dorothy!

And every day we explored the heck out of that island...

The Atlantic side of Eleuthera

Lighthouse Beach, Eleuthera



Hanging on the Glass Window Bridge in Eleuthera

Cruising around on Harbor Island...

It was tough leaving Eleuthera. But, like we said to everyone we encountered, "We're not saying goodbye. We're saying we'll see you again soon..."

Craig - I'm so glad you posted photos of Eleuthera and I remember that gorgeous turquoise water! I'm so glad you had such a spectacular vacation and got some well deserved R&R. It's good to see you back, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm a little jealous! I so want to visit a Caribbean Island and may have to return to Eleuthera!

Craig, first things first...WELCOME BACK...YOU WERE MISSED!!  I've visited some of the Eastern Caribbean Islands, even the Bahamas, but Eleuthera is absolutely gorgeous...I'll definitely have to pay it a visit.  And how cool was it to capture that tornado/water spout?

Craig, sounds like the perfect get away, and an adventure with Christy must have virtual Heather jealous. Some gorgeous photos too!

Hey all,

Thanks for the warm welcome back and for stopping on by and sharing our little getaway with us.
More people commented on this blog than we saw the entire time we were away! OK, not really. But pretty darned close to it!
If you ever truly need a relaxing, peaceful vacation in a beautiful setting, you just might want to consider Eleuthera.
It was all that and sooooo much more.
Contact me and I'll give you all the "must know" details prior to making a trip there.

Thanks again,

Craig- first... I think that is the first time I've seen a non-photoshopped photo of you!!! Seeing your pictures of Eleuthra makes me want to go.  Glad you got your much deserved vacation.
