Baker's Bay

On Saturday continued by to Baker's Bay
in Great Guana Cay
Baker's Bay is a 3 mile long bay on the island of Great Guana Cay.
It is the location of the Baker's Bay Golf & Ocean Club,
as well as the controversy surrounding it.
Baker's Bay is a clear and aqua sea grass bed in the Sea of Abaco,
and was a favorite destination of Abaco boaters for years.
Dredging for a Disney cruise destination caused
considerable environmental damage to the corals in the area,
as corals are unable to withstand continuous silting. I
n 2004, Baker's Bay Golf & Ocean Club
began a megadevelopment project
which is largely believed by conservation groups
to have destroyed the area.
- well, the place is certainly man-made,
not a natural looking area!
Starving! So went to have lunch

Roasted tomato gaspacho
with johnny cake
- excellent for a hot weather like this!
- nice & spicy!
After lunch had a tour
around the area by foot,
not by golf cart
Perfectly cutted lawns
Stylish swimmimg pool
- 3 treadmills on the back in the shadows
just in case somebody feels like running
but not in the sun along the real roads
Residental area
Different types of houses
something for everyone...
Quite many still for sale
"April Fool"
- nice yact!
- probably owned by Bill Gates...
Left Baker's Bay behind
and went to HopeTown
Burning in Hope Town???
No, just the fire brigade driving around
- not any more making the readers bored
by the ice-cream pics
- actually skipped the daily dose for a couple of days,
the waitress got worried what had happened...
On the way back to White Sound
Hope Town is so picturesque!
Kimi Räikkönen arriving to Hope Town?
Hope Town
Romantic gazebo
Going home before the sun sets down
Dinner after the "hard" day at sea
- bbq pork with avocado mousse & salad
- great!
