We wake up early and as always we enjoy a coffee on the back deck and listen to the waves. A do some social media work online and we get ready to head to town for groceries.
We plan to go to town and have breakfast at Peace and Plenty. Heather had the best eggs benedict last trip and absolutely loved it. We fill up our water jug at Exuma Building Supplies, then stop to see Ron at Prime Island Meats about a turkey for Christmas dinner. The store is packed as people scramble to last minute food shop before Christmas. We decide to save the trip to Georgetown and buy everything we need at Prime Island Meats. We pick up a 14 pound turkey, and I treat us to 3 New York Striploin steaks for tonight!
We arrive home around 1130. Chase has pancakes and I have bacon and eggs. Heather gets all of the Christmas decorations out, including the stockings and our little Christmas tree.
The Christmas tree is up!
Herode our gardener stops in for a visit. We walk around the property and talk about some of the things we want to do in the new year.
Palm trees are getting big 🌴🌴
Heather and I slide around the corner to Tracy Bowes Convenience Store and pick some extra things….. potatoes, pop, bacon, cream cheese and romaine lettuce. We stop into Bristols Liquor Store at Emerlad Bay for wine.
Love our Guests! Enjoying this Chicago Blackhawks beer cozy with a kalik! Thanks Michelle and Laura!
Chase and I head to Flamingo Bay and Emerald Bay to try and catch some bait with his new casting net. He has luck at Emerald Bay, landing 8 or 9 small Mullets. He puts them in a large costco pretzel container and makes a fish tank for the house.

Heather and Chase walk down to the water and go for a walk on the beach. I prepare us steak, cauliflower and salad for dinner. We enjoy dinner and a rum punch, and end the night watching Pirates of the Caribbean. Its funny that the movie we are watching was actually filmed right here in Exuma, and Johnny Depp and his crew spent several nights enjoying drinks and lobster just down the road at Santana’s Grill!
Christmas Eve in Exuma! Looking forward to spending Christmas Day with the turkey in the oven, my toes in the sand…… and a cold kalik in my hand. 🍺🍺
