Bahamas Vacation Photography: Cat Island

For Ginny’s birthday, I surprised her with a trip to Cat Island. She had no idea where we were going until we reached the airport. It was a lot of fun keeping that one a secret from her. We arrived in Nassau where we had honeymooned about 14 years earlier. We spent one night there, and then we took a small (and I mean small) airplane to Cat Island. Cat Island has literally no commercial development on it. It’s considered and “out” island, in that it’s out there in the Bahamas. :) We had the beach there to ourselves, and we had a chef who prepared our meals. Each afternoon after lunch, the chef would ask what we wanted for dinner. She’d tell us what fresh foods they had on hand, and then she’d prepare these incredibly wonderful meals. We had no television to speak of, so we laid by the beach and read books. In fact, I read photgraphy books while Ginny read fiction for the first time in years. (Ginny is an editor and reads all the time, but she doesn’t often have time to read fiction.) It was, as Ginny says, “The most relaxing time I’ve ever had.” We highly recommend a trip to this part of the world if you seek only the sounds of the ocean, the dogs running down the beach, and your spouse. It was the best vacation I’ve ever taken with Ginny. She claims the same, so I’m sure we’ll be going back. I hope the photos reflect the beauty and relaxation we found on this trip.

    Great pix! I’ve enjoyed all your pix throughout your site, in fact. I’m an amatuer phtographer, and enjoy photography very much. Your pix and the descriptions have given me a lot to think about.

    I also enjoyed your description of Cat Island, and the surprise. I’ve been married for 20 years, and I think Cat Island sounds like a nice getaway for us. Was the trip expensive? How did you set it up – through an agent?

    Thanks again for sharing your beautiful pictures.
