Entering beautiful Elizabeth Harbour and George Town after
story book anchorage at Warderick Wells, Exumas Land & Sea Park -- and navigating, with our friends (expert
sailors), in and out of tight rocky passes with rapidly swirling currents. We explored Staniel Cay, Little Farmers,
Lee Stocking Island, Pipe Creek and Sampson Cay.

"Great Guana Beach,"
"View from Valentine's"
& "Hope Town Light"
Our diving buddies lead us to these lucid waters off Walkers
Cay (after a tumultuous Gulf Stream crossing from Stuart, Florida). We cruised the Abacos from Walkers to Manjack,
Green Turtle, Great Guana, Man of War Cay, Marsh Harbor, and Elbow Cay to Little Harbour

Our friends shared with us this special spot
near Times Square in the deep blue Atlantic off Harbour Island,
North Eleuthera, Bahamas
On board J.P. Frog
We have come to love the Bahamas, and the Bahamian people.
The Bahama Islands are beginning to experience challenges similar to those we have witnessed (and have overcome,
to a degree) in Florida's beautiful coastal and barrier island areas -- including the long term deleterious results
from dredge and fill operations.
From Hal & B.J.'s extensive adventures in the Bahama out islands, including the Abacos, Eleuthera, and the
Exumas, a large body of Bahamian images has been created. Many of these works were shown in two major one-person exhibitions:
THE BAHAMIAN GAP - EXOTIC MOODS & ADVENTURES, Fall 1991
THE GULF TO THE CARIBBEAN - Winter 1993
