The GCP Bahamas group has enjoyed the first five days on the islands, Nassau and Eleuthra and are finally getting a chance to let you know what’s been going on! Our schedule has been jam packed as we’ve already toured large portions of both islands and got extensive looks at an Evangelistic temple, Adastra gardens and zoo, Clifton Heritage, a Junkanoo shack, Parliament, the Post Office, and many shopping areas. We’ve also eaten among the locals at many restaurants (as well as eaten Bahamian food at Breezes Resort), meaning that we’ve had a lot of conch, grouper, snapper, chicken, and other spicy foods.
Today (Wednesday) we got to travel to Eleuthra, an island north east of Nassau. We headed for a two hour trip to Spanish Wells and then took a water taxi over to Eleuthra. And of course, the water is so BLUE! Our tour guide took us to a pineapple farm then off to the glass window bridge. Look left, you see the Atlantic Ocean, but look right and you see the Caribbean Sea. This is mainly exciting because of the difference in colors. After this, we got to go on the pink sands of Eleuthra and saw some of the clearest waters. After some cracked conch and grouper at a local restaurant, we headed to Preacher’s Cave. Finally, we headed back on the boat and returned to Nassau.
Other than some sea sickness, we had a great day and are excited to wake up early to go to school tomorrow!
