This week's theme for photohunter is "favorite". I decided to show some photos we took last year on our trip to Harbour Island in the Bahamas. This was a beautiful island, with a pink sand beach that ran for longer than 3 miles. Not your typical beach-the most people we ever saw on the beach was maybe 10. You can't rent a car on the island, and so you rent a golf cart to get around. We started our vacation on Paradise Island at Atlantis (lucky me, I won a trip through my work there!). It was a very nice resort, but lots of people. We like quiet, and big resorts just really aren't our thing. After the trip ended at Atlantis, we extended our vacation by taking a ferry to Harbour Island for a few extra day. Peaceful, nothing to do but lay on the beach, lay in a hammock at our lodging, enjoy a nice glass of wine while enjoying the view, etc. etc.

This first photo is me standing in the beautiful clear waters. This was the opposite side of the island as the beach, but during this tide you could walk for what seemed like forever in shallow water.

This next photo is of my husband and I having dinner at a great Italian restaurant on the island, called Aqua Pazza. We ate there 3 nights. The food was excellent, and look at the view...

This last photo is taken at the Bed & Breakfast we stayed at. The area shown is the patio where we had breakfast each morning.

The colors at the beach are gorgeous. It looks so relaxing and restful. And it is warm. I could do with some sun right now.

Thanks so much for sharing these images!
I'm sitting inside of my home, trying to warm up after showing homes today in our -28C winter weather, SO these photos were perfect!
Warmed me up just thinking about them...

Marta-Harbour Island was very relaxing. I'd like to be there right now.
Brenda-you are sure having some cold weather. I hope it warms up soon. I was in Ca all week, and it was in the 70s-beautiful. Back to Ak Friday night and it had turned colder - it's Sat night and now 4 above, but I'm freezing!

What a beautiful place! Great photos :)

Gorgeous place! You both look so happy and relaxed.
