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.

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
