Athens, Georgia
Welcome to my little world- I am thrilled that you are here. My most sincere hope is that this little blog is a source of laughter, inspiration and some seriously fabulous food (even if it is vegan!). Is it possible to maintain a vegetarian lifestyle below the Mason Dixon line? Come along with me and find out as I pound the pavement, travel and eat my way through life. Cheers!

Hotel Spotlight- Valentine's Resort

Valentine's Resort and Marina is a luxury hotel perched on the pink sands of Harbour Island in The Bahamas. One look and you will understand why Harbour Island has recently been bestowed the honor of "Best Beaches in the Caribbean" by Travel and Leisure Magazine.

Harbour Island is only accessible by boat but fear not if you don't have a yacht at your disposal, the ferry from Eleuthera will take you directly to Valentine's Marina. Step foot off the boot and you will be instantly greeted by punchy Caribbean style cottages with tidy white trim and immaculate landscaping. If scuba or sailing are your thing- Valentine's is the perfect place for you as they offer frequent excursions!

Be sure to stop by the fabulous Boat House Restaurant for a lively happy hour and an incredible view of the harbor. Enjoy a delightful Bahama Breeze as the sun slowly sets. You can see from the picture below that after happy hour at the Boat House, I flipped off my flops and headed to the beach!

I love your beach bag!

The Consummate Hostess said...

Thanks, Jaime! I actually got the bag at H & M in Madrid a few years ago. It was so cheap(you know when the dollar was actually stronger than the Euro-gasp!)and is hands down my favorite summer bag!
