As beautiful as that first beach was, it was time to continue our adventure.

The lighthouse on Eleuthera was established in 1903. The light itself, on a pole, still works. The “house” has long since been abandoned. I really wanted to get tied up and mauled there, but there actually was a storm coming; and though I tried to talk the Guys into waiting it out (how cool would that be – weathering a storm at the tip of the island??) they insisted on safety first. Boo-hiss, right? lol
We had some more fun on the Atlantic side that day before the long walk back (see here and here), but the storm finally hit just as we got to our car. It was as ferocious as the Guys had feared, and the drive back was a wild one, with the wind whipping up the Caribbean Sea on one side of the road and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, with only a few hundred yards in between in some places.
It was a worthy adventure for our last day, and a memory I will always cherish.
