Default Bahamas Weekender in the Abacos

My wife & I headed out on a weekend trip to Treasure Cay Bahamas.
It was my 64th birthday & we wanted to do something different.
Funny, on Saturday night at Cocos on the beach, the DJ played the Beatles song.
"When I'm 64" I thought she requested it but she said she didn't.
First view of the Abacos

Getting Closer

Approach into Treasure Cay, MYAT

Here's the beach.

Had the beach almost to ourselves.

Our bungalow. They have a private pliot special, 20% off rooms & another $150 off with a 2 day stay.

Here's me soaking it all in the crystal clear water.
Looks surreal.



Since Treasure Cay does not have fuel, I made a fuel run to Marsh Harbour, MYAM.
Here's a picture of Treasure Cay Beach on my way to pick up Nann at MYAT getting all our bags packed.



Here's a picture of the Marsh Harbour Approach.
They added a new runway since my last visit & the old runway became the taxiway.


Pound those rivets you all.
This was just a 2 hour flight from Clearwater Florida to a different beautiful world.

Oh, & to get back into the US, We had to add those 12" numbers.
Painters tape holds up well.

Thumbs up

Thanks Dan! Brings back good memories of Nov 2011 when Ted towed me to the Bahamas on my first international trip. We stayed at the same bungalow and walked the same beach

Thanks Vlad.
I'm going to find a place you've never been.
I know, good luck with that. You've been everywhere.

Default Nice trip

Bahamas is my fav destination in the rv. Just feels like your so far from the real world. People and out islands and beaches are just amazing.

For those that have not gone, you have to go. Its just that great. Pretty much all the resorts on the many islands either offer the $300 fuel rebate or give a pretty great discount to pilots. Cant wait till next years trip.
