Our Vacation to Exuma: Day Three (Part One)

On the third day of vacation, we went island hopping. We hired a guide to take us around. (I had to break down Day Three into two different blog posts, as it’s so picture heavy.)

Exuma, The Bahamas

When we got to the dock, the locals were getting their boats ready for a small regatta in honor of their big holiday, Emancipation Day.

We got to see the homes and playgrounds of the rich and famous… David Copperfield, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, The heirs of Johnson and Johnson, and many more. I really need to win the lottery. Sigh…

There are quite a few research stations out among the islands.

And caves and caverns galore. We stopped to check this little one out.

How cool is that?! The whole island is full of them.

They are pretty aggressive. You have to feed them with a stick, so they don’t chomp off your fingers.

Our next experience was at Compass Cay.  Amongst the million dollar yachts, you can actually “swim with the sharks,” and live to tell about it. If you’re brave enough!
