“One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.”
– William Feather
Just wanted to share a few snaps from my Nov/Dec 2022 travel/writing adventure to the Bahamas (Eleuthera) and Chicago with my awesome friend, Lynne!
For the first leg of our journey, we stayed ten nights with a friend of mine, Sherelle, who lives in Greencastle on the island of Eleuthera.
Sherelle is preparing to launch her “Live with a Local” program in which she hosts travelers (women only) in her home. I first stayed at Sherelle’s place in 2019…here is the link to read that blog.
Sherelle is a kind, gracious & very knowledgeable host! She took us to what are, I suspect, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world…which we had pretty much entirely to ourselves!
Sherelle’s “Live with a Local” program is geared for women who are traveling on a budget, are interested in staying with a local Bahamian for a short period of time, and are keen to explore Eleuthera with a knowledgeable guide.
If you are interested in learning more about Sherelle’s “Live with a Local” program, you can contact her directly at: email@example.com.
After Sherelle’s, Lynne and I headed to my beloved Pineapple Fields boutique hotel (near Governor’s Harbour on Eleuthera) and spent 5 nights there.
Here are a few photos from our time in the Bahamas:
As for Chicago, that is Lynne’s hometown and her mom & aunt still live there, so we stopped in for a visit on our way back home…and Lynne showed me some of her fav haunts!
Here are a couple snaps from the Chicago leg of our journey:
And, perhaps not surprisingly 🙂 the Universe delivered to me yet another screenplay idea…about our warm, wacky & wild adventure! The script is tentatively entitled, “Bahamas Mamas” and it will be a COMEDY!
In the meantime…
Here is the link to view a sassy little travel video I whipped about our Bahamas/Chicago adventure (3 min). Enjoy!
After our trip, I had a delightfully relaxing & restorative few weeks at home in Qualicum Beach over the holidays. Heaven!
This week, I am hitting the road again for 10 days…heading to Orcas Island (San Juan islands) to dog sit (and write, of course) for friends!
Take care, stay well & here’s to a fantastic 2023!!
