All I wanted for Christmas is ocean blue at Gordons Beach. I decided last April, when we re-booked was to have lunch on Gordons Beach on the southern tip of Long Island. My Christmas wish came true, but first we had to start Christmas morning with ricotta pancakes with guava jam and bananas.
After our hearty breakfast and some holiday cheer photos we gathered up our beach gear and headed out to Gordon’s Beach.
I will say this is one of my favorite beaches we have ever visited. All I have wanted for Christmas day was to sit here.
We also worked on next year’s Christmas card photo, nothing like planning in advance.
After our selfie photo shoot, a walk and a float it was time to enjoy lunch. We had Max’s Conch Bar conch salad for lunch.
We stopped to take photos at the end of the highway, after leaving Gordons Beach.
On the return trip to our cottage, we decided to make a few stops. First stop were two churches that looked interesting.
Our second stop was the Diamond Crystal & Salt Flats in Hard Bargain. The flats have been abandoned and we found the old runway that serviced this area. Nothing really to see here, nothing of note.
We had one final stop in The Bight, the new sign since April. We wanted to read it and then decided to adventure down the road by it. What we discovered is a conch and sponge area.
We came home and the plan was to nap, but the water looked so inviting at the house, we decided to go in for a snorkel. The water wasn’t clear and visibility was poor so the snorkel turned into a short swim.
We prepped dinner of salad with chicken, waiting for the sun to set. Sunset was obscured by a bank of clouds, put nevertheless it was pretty in its own way.
After our dinner we enjoyed an altered dessert recipe of frozen bananas and other goodness over Bahamian sweet rolls (should have been sponge cake, but we couldn’t find any).
We finished the night playing cards and realizing Christmas wishes do come true.
