|Our Bahamas Beach|
|Rum Runners:Where mixing a drink requiresa machete!|
After lunch we wandered around the marketplace and found one of our two favorite spots on the island…Rum Runners. This is a great place to meet people from all over the world while enjoying a drink (or two) and they have the bestfree WiFi on the island. (You know how Mona gets when she’s not connected!) The bartenders here are hilarious and it’s amazing how they chop the coconuts with machetes without losing hardly any fingers!

|Chef Bernie at work|
Chef Bernie takes your order and then prepares it and cooks it as you watch. (Our order was conch fritters with grilled fresh-caught lobster.) Since each order is done individually it takes a while so you pass the time by sipping on a Bahama Mama and talking with other diners. As it turns out, people from all over the world come here year after year for Bernie’s food. We met people from Iceland, Peru, Romania, Great Britain, Canada, and of course the US. Most of these people were like us and came to Bernie’s several times over the week. The food here is wonderful, but it’s the beach atmosphere and the new people you meet that makes it amazing!
