Trespassing on private islands

We've been told all beaches in the Bahamas are public. I'm not sure if that extends to private islands... but who cares. This place was too beautiful to pass up. I think it should be against the law for people with too much money to buy up incredibly beautiful natural islands and then shut out the rest of the world. Unless I become incredibly rich and buy my own island. If that were the case I would make a go-cart track on the beach that goes all the way around the island. Just like Mario Cart for Super Nintendo. And maybe I would put up a castle too. With a go-cart track on the inside, just like Bowser's Castle. way cool.

Cool Cave! We've been finding a lot of cool caves lately. There was a big one in the Jumentos that you could drive your dinghy right into. Unfortunately we never got a picture of it.
Lee inside the cave:
This picture is kinda self explanitory"She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
Just like shes walking on a wire in the circus"
- Counting CrowsSo it doesn't look like she is walking on a wire in the circus - but this picture makes me think of that line. The song is called "round here" if you want to check it out.

You might have noticed LeeAnn is always in the pictures. I always ask her to take pictures of me, but she says that I'm not allowed to be in pictures unless I have taken a shower that week.

This is Lee. He has a long story and I don't know all of it. What I do know is that he ran away from home when he was 12. He hitch hiked clear across the country multiple times, even making it to Alaska. He ended up making it through college with a degree in photography. From there he back packed to various countries in Central and South America that were having wars and revolutions. I don't know if he went with the intention to become a photo journalist, but that is what he became. In other words, Lee became a War Correspondent.

He has been arrested numerous times (sometimes in America), been beaten by police, shot at, and hit with shrapnel from bombs.

Lee ended up in eastern Europe where he married a concert pianist who he could hardly communicate with, as neither of them spoke the same language. Lee started a photo agency.

Lee's photos have been on the covers and in the pages of Time, Newsweek, Christian Science Monitor, and a bunch of other newspapers that I don't remember.

He is a really cool guy, makes a killer pizza. We've been hanging out with him since Georgetown. He left for Eluthera today, and we were sad to see him go.... Where will we get our coffee fix from now??!!!??
