Rock Sound

13055428_245411285810087_3654806379926724064_nkarte-8-804Rock 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.

The map I borrowed from a website and it gives you a good overview of the places on Eleuthra  I have written about.  Spanish Wells was our first stop, and Rock Sound down towards the bottom hook is our last.

We ate dinner at Wild Orchids, a pricey restaurant that had excellent food.  Here is the colorful sunset view of our boat we enjoyed from the restaurant:

I wished I had brought my snorkeling gear  as it was a very cool place to visit.  There is also a hiking trail around the blue hole, and we discovered a playground for Ethan to play.

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!

      Lori, the beads in the white bracelet were made using local pink sand and glue. Pretty creative use of local resources. You would have loved this shop!
