Last night I got back from an amazing trip to the Bahamas! Most of the 11 days were spent sailing through the Exumas, but we spent some time in New Providence as well. I will do a more thorough travel diary later this week but I wanted to just quickly share some highlights. The focus of this voyage was research so we lived on the beautiful Beacon Won for most of the time. I would wake up to fresh coffee and breakfast every morning while sitting on the back deck watching the laughing gulls fly overhead and remora swim down below. We moved from island to island researching the Caribbean rock iguana, enjoying the beaches and snorkeling. Upon return from the field, a swim off the stern was highly anticipated. It was definitely a trip I will never forget. The days bookending our sail were spent visiting the Straw Market in Nassau and exploring Atlantis.
