This is the immigration house for the Bahamas. Richard cleared the crew into the country here. To the left is where they take tourists to buy t-shirts.

A typical (higher end) house in Bimini. ┬áNot sure what the “stage” in front is for.

The library.  I think if you want a book you just take it, hopefully you return it.

Feeding “Bull Sharks” with the leftovers from a fish. We didn’t swim here because of the abundance of the Bull Sharks.

We dinghy-ed to the island that is only visible at low tide and did some exploring.

This is a baby conch. Everywhere you go you see Conch Salad and Cracked Conch for sale. Piles of conch shells line the shore where fishermen clean their catch.

    • We haven’t eaten the conch yet… Looking at a living conch might have been a mistake. The locals have suggested that we try cracked conch which is conch deep fried. We have a year to work up to conch salad that…

      • Yes, I agree that it might be a bit of a stretch to eat a conch now. But like you say, you’ve got a year! I remember the first time I ate paella in Spain and came across a rubbery piece in the paella – took it out of my mouth to see what it was, and clearly saw the little suckers on one side – it was octopus! That image is fixed in my memory!
