This is Bimini with respect to Florida.

These are Bimini Islands.  We were tied up in North Bimini, about where the "F Red" star is on the chart.

These are Bimini Islands. We were tied up in Alicetown, North Bimini, about where the “F Red” star is on the chart.

It was our first stop after the hyped up Gulf Stream crossing and it was perfect.  The people were friendly, there was stuff to do, and the view was breathtaking.  The Bimini Islands are the closest Bahamian Islands to Florida.  Precisely why we chose it as our first stop!  We stayed at Blue Water Marina in Alice Town, North Bimini.  Alice Town has one road that takes you through the town.  One road.  It’s also the road you walk on to get to stuff.  Restaraunts, conch shacks, bars, a couple of resorts, Taste of Heaven Bakery, the grocery store, post office, immigration & customs, and the water ferry to South Bimini.   It’s all on King’s Highway.

We had a great time in Bimini and it was sad to leave, but we can only hope that Bimini was just the beginning.  Oh, and if you are in the Florida area and want to visit Bimini, check out this place.  They do day trips to Bimini for like, 70 bucks.

Here are a few more pics of our visit to Bimini.  Click on the first picture for a slide show and more ramblings <3

  1. Love the fried conch too and hated the conch salad!!!!! Great photo’s building your wonderful memories! Happy for you two!

  2. I read this at about 5:30 this morning. It was about 7 degrees at the time and now we’re waiting with baited breath for another brush with Mother Nature. Without a doubt, you two picked the right winter not to be in the Mid-Atlantic States. A system is supposed to go through tonight/tomorrow and dump more snow on us, but the DC/Baltimore area is supposed to get it worse. Snow is already falling here at 8:30pm, I’ve got the tank gassed and the snow blower ready. You don’t know how much your pictures made me want summer!
