The Wells to Spanish Wells

With Captain Clayton aboard, IMG_9806

we traveled east from Eleuthera to the island of Spanish Wells through “the devil’s backbone,” a very precarious trip through coral heads.  After making it through, we rounded the island IMG_9812

and anchored at Gun Point.IMG_9814

The next day, Captain James from Spanish Wells came aboard


and after we moved the boat to an anchorage at Royal Island, he took us all to do things that we love around Spanish Wells.

I got to go shelling at this quiet little beach


where I found a little love


while the rest of the crew dove a wreck.  We all snorkeled and spear fished at a reef,



visited with his swimming pigs

Weather took us to Spanish Wells Marina


where we walked from the marina to church,

And having the golf cart, we explored the entire 4 1/2 mile island

and every night we visited Papa’s Scoops.  This was such an inspiration to me.

Open only from 7:30-10p, it is an ice cream spot in someones’s driveway, where they serve homemade, delicious, soft serve ice cream…2 different creative flavors every day. Golf carts line up like a drive through, but we walked the 2 blocks from the boat. We all loved it.


What an amazingly safe, trustworthy, sweet island and people.
