A Day in the Life at Canuck Palms 30 December 2015
This morning we relax on the back deck with our coffees and listen to the waves. We head into Georgetown for a few things before noon. I run into Doe Boi and check on our washer and dryer parts that are being flown here from Miami. We grab a kalik at the Red Boone Cafe and check some emails with the wifi. Heather runs into the Exuma Market for a handful of groceries.
We arrive home and quickly grab our things to head to Emerald Bay up the road. Heather wants to get there and check out the tiny straw market that is set up on the beach. Chase and I toss the football in the shallow water and Heather chats with the ladies at the market.
Heather introduces me to everyone, and we purchase a few gifts. The queen and king conch shells are beautiful, and so are all the handmade baskets, hats a jewellery. “Bahama Mama” gives Chase a necklace with a surfboard and shark’s tooth on it, as well as a colorful bracelet. They all treated us so well! Then Chase talks for quite a while with the two young Grand kids. They discuss deep sea fishing and Chase tells his story of catching a huge needlenose fish last trip.
We arrive home just before dinner and Chase’s new friend Nathan has invited him down for a swim at his house. We drive down Breakwater Drive and visit our new friends Chris and Emily and their kids Nathan and Olive. We have a wonderful time sitting in from of their place on the beach, having a few kalik, and watching the kids swim until dark. They are a wonderful family and we look forward to keeping in touch. We even make plans to have them over for drinks and go out for dinner before the end of the trip!
We get back to the house and I bbq fresh hamburgers from Prime Island Meats. It was another amazing day in Exuma. Tomorrow we are going to try and go to Hoopers Bay to feed the sea turtles!!
