Our trip south would not be complete without a visit to Thompson Bay, Long Island, Bahamas. It is a lovely island with very friendly people. It’s always fun to visit Jackie and Mike who own the Long Island Breeze. They are very cruiser friendly and bend over backwards to make our stay fun and easy. Their resort has a pool, a casual deck with a restaurant upstairs. They host the Long Island Rally which goes from George Town to Long Island the week after the Cruiser’s Regatta. They always make it fun. During the Rally the Long Island Breeze served a steak dinner that was amazing along with fish for those who like something more island style. We always enjoy their lunch and dinners (non-Rally) and it’s a must see if you are in Long Island.
We also enjoy anchoring at Miller’s Bay and going to Chez Pierre for dinner. Pierre is from Montreal. He serves pasta dishes with French styles sauces that are amazing. His salads are very good. He also serves many other meat dishes and seafood dishes. He has a little restaurant with some cottages he rents out. The feel is very casual but stylish. It’s always a treat to add Chez Pierre to our Long Island list to do. We love Joe Sound and Calabash Bay (Cape Santa Maria Resort..their lobster salad it very good!) and Stella Maris Resort. We didn’t make it up to north Long Island this time but we hope to make it a priority next year. Hopefully we can stay a couple of weeks instead of a couple of days. So much to see and so little time this year!
We also like to make a side trip to Conception Island that is north of Long Island. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t agreeable to go there this year. It is an uninhabited island that is beautiful and has an inland river where you can take your dinghy and see all types of interesting creatures including the neighborhood sea turtles.
Hope all is well with you and yours! Thanks for stopping by!
