How It All Began…

At a party years ago I met a man who had the swarthy good looks of a pirate, complete with the red beard, blue eyes, and dangerous smile. I learned he had just been rescued after being shipwrecked and adrift… Continue Reading →

22. Straw, Bahama Bread, and Chez Pierre

This morning we ate some mangos we brought from Miami from our own Edwards tree. They were paired with fried sweet potato medallions – a mix of Miami sweet potatoes and Bahamian sweet potatoes. They were actually really good! Unfortunately,… Continue Reading →

14. Crooked Flamingos, Painting, and Sticky Buns

Today is the day we had to leave Acklins Island and return to Crooked. For years I have fantasized about visiting Acklins. I imagined what it would be like, what it would look like, what the people would be like…. Continue Reading →

13. A Visit with Nay, Keneps, and Island Boys

Having heard my husband’s adventure stories on Acklins for the past 34 years, I have been wanting to visit this island. This is our last day in Acklins and I want it to be perfect, which means it must include… Continue Reading →
