Nassau, Bahamas: Beaches, Boats, and Brews

Stuart Cove's Dive Hut

Everything seems brighter in the tropics. I chose to process most of these in HDR because I really liked how it brought out the bright, saturated colors of the islands.

First, a few from Stuart Cove's, the dive center where we spent most of our vacation:

These bait boxes go underwater with the shark feeder on Stuart Cove's daily shark dive. Every once in a while, I saw a stray island cat that lived under the dock come out and start licking the fish bits off the bait boxes.

Some from Jaws Beach (where the final film in the franchise, Jaws: The Revenge, was filmed):

Arawak Cay, known to locals as the "Fish Fry," home to some of the best food on the island:

Arawak Cay is also an excellent place to get a "cold ass beer" on a hot day:

The local brew, Kalik, is usually a pretty good deal:
