More stuff to do over Christmas

Taken from Eleuthera .com

Please find below a few other tings to do .

Please visit the Queen bath , the view is incredible , but only visit while the ocean is quieter. Just before the Glass window on the right while heading north , watch for the sign.

THE QUEENS’ BATH

Just south of the Glass Window, look for a row of sawed-off pine tree stumps on the Atlantic side . Park in small pull off. Walk over rocks to cliffs. Peer down and see rock pools etched out by the wave action; a cave is behind them. You can go down there at low tide when the weather is calm and float around in the pools, which are filled with live shells and little fish. DO NOT EVEN TRY when the sea is rough. You could be washed away!!!! And people have been!!! Seepicture of the Queens Baths here….. …..

OCEAN HOLERock Sound, Eleuthera

 

The Ocean Hole is a natural “blue hole” that the locals say is bottomless. It is actually an inland salt water lake, a mile from the oceans, yet it is filled with salt water sea life, and rises and ebbs with the tides.

Therefore, it definitely has a connection with he ocean, although no-one has found the connection (Jacques Cousteau, formerly a part-time resident of Windemere, tried unsuccessfully.)

The hole is full of fish, but no fishing allowed, although you are welcome to swim and feed the fish.

ELVINA’S RESTAURANT

 

 


Chicken Ed and the namesake of this institution, Elvina 

In Gregory Town, get ready for a very unusual place. Where else in the civilized world can you, under one roof: 

1) shoot some pool
2) eat cajun and Bahamian food
3) wash your clothes
4) listen to music jams every Tuesday and Friday night 

Yes, wash those traveling clothes, eat some jambalaya, shoot pool, and listen to music jams! The Walls are covered with license plates and bumper stickers, and the surfboards hanging from the ceiling have been stowed there by surfer-regulars. Elvina’s husband, known around these parts as “Chicken Ed,” is from Louisiana, and cajun type food is served.

On Tuesdays and Fridays is jam night, and you might catch sometime local Lenny Kravitz or Chris Robinson or other visiting musicians.
