“Welcome to the Bahamas
No need to rush… Take your time. You are on Island time now,”
So greeted the ramp personnel as they helped us tie the aircraft down and unload the aircraft where ever we landed in the Bahamas. Island Time. Has a nice ring right?
The cab was waiting to ferry us over to the Fernandez Bay Village (FBV) resort. After a quick tour of the resort, and checking in, we were settled in our villa. A few of the others who had arrived earlier, were already out relaxing on the beach, in the warm waters or lounging in the Club House sipping intoxicating Rum Punch and snacking on cookies laid out to welcome us.
FBV is an idyllic paradise. Set on the western shore of central Cat Island, with a vast expanse of immaculate pink beach and turquoise waters of the bay, one could get lost on this tranquil out island of the Bahamas. The resort boasts of several cottages and villas on the beach; a clubhouse with outdoor and indoor seating facing the bay where breakfast, lunch and dinner is served; an outdoor bar where guests make their own drinks any time of the day based on an honor system; free kayak or bike rentals and friendly hosts- Tameron, Jason and Donna who wanted to make our stay there as comfortable as they could. So much so, that Jason brought over his own personal TV to the clubhouse, so that we could watch the Super Bowl!
