Sunday, July 15, 2007 - San Salvador, Bahamas




So you may have wondered where I went? Every year my husband goes on a research trip to San Salvador Island in the Bahamas. Enjoy the pics while I catch up with everything here at home...












The Bahamian flag - black/yellow/turquoise - flies in front of the Gerace Research Center on San Salvador. The beach at the GRC. When you're there, you are the only person walking on the beaches because San Sal is not a tourist destination (other than a Club Med that has their own gated enclave).






Beach on Columbus Landing - supposedly, Columbus first landed here on San Sal (of course, several of the Bahamas islands claim that distinction, too.)





Royal Poinciana in front of one of the buildings - beautiful colors and all these blooms meant they'd had good rains (good for the plants, not good for humans because of the mosquitoes!).

I see a great painting coming out of these - esp the Poinsienna! What a beautiful part of the world.

Thanks, Ann and Ms Anonymous :) for your comments. Yes, I think those blossoms may have to be painted...
