The Bahamas...Coolest in the Summer and Warmest in the Winter!

Over the last several weeks I have been astonished at the record temperatures being set in North America!  How is it possible that the mid-west is over 100 degrees, the northeast experiencing similar conditions and in most instances this heat is not accompanied by any breeze whatsoever!?  To live in these conditions for extended periods of time must take a toll on ones quality of life.  While I realize that these heat spells don't last forever, the contrast for other periods of the year can be equally as brutal.

I bring up this point, not to disparage the areas that many of my friends and family call home, but to bring to light the absolutely beautiful weather that I enjoy nearly year around.  *On a visit in the 1760s, George Washington referred to The Bahamas as the 'Isles of Perpetual June.' Most of the Bahamas has sunshine approximately 310 days per year (averaging 8 hours per day, this is usually more in the summer, and less in the winter).  The Bahamas has a tropical maritime climate, which makes for generally year-round good weather. The Bahamas does not experience extremes of temperatures. In centrally situated New Providence, winter temperatures seldom fall much below 60F degrees and usually reach about 75F degrees in the day. In summer, temperatures usually fall to 78F degrees or less at night and seldom rise above 90F degrees during the day. There are two seasons: summer which is from May thru September and winter which is from October thru April. A Bahamian winter is usually the equivalent of summer at Lake Tahoe.

So, you see, not only does The Bahamas enjoy a stable economy, beautiful scenery and a lucrative real estate market but it also provides for near year around spectacular weather conditions and a place where you can decompress and enjoy the things in life that our creator intended!

Give me a call or shoot me an email anytime!  I love to talk about this beautiful place I call home!!
