Rock Sound is a lovely Bahamian Settlement. It has good cruising restaurants, a delightful blue hole, local artisan store, and an excellent provisioning grocery store next to the hardware store.

On our way back to the boat, we visited a local artist gallery that used found and recycled items to sell in their shop. In the spirit of supporting local artists, I bought a few items:
I leave you with some more images from this beautiful place. Next stop- Exumas!
