We searched the island near and far for a serviceable guitar. After a few failed attempts we found one that wasn’t missing any tuning keys.

An emergency string kit came in handy. The guitar still didn’t sound very well, but we still listened to live music nonetheless.

The Bahamas are a special place. The affable people, insouciant lifestyle, delicious cuisine, pristine flats laden with bonefish both big and small…the list could go on indefinitely.

What’s not to love?

I’m looking forward to the day that we meet again.
