The Bahamas After Hurricane Dorian – An Unfiltered Look Through the Lens of Instagram: Scotland Cay

Tagged: , , ,

After Hurricane Dorian struck the Bahamas, one of the islands I was often asked about was Scotland Cay. The questions weren’t coming because it’s a huge tourist destination. Most of the island, besides a small marina and airport, consists of privately owned residences. Due to this, information was hard to come by immediately after the storm – unless the property owners were sharing updates online, there were no resorts, restaurants or...

When it comes to my ideal beach bar, there are a few that have always come to mind. That short list will have to make room for another one – the beach bar at the Bequia Beach Hotel. Even though it’s at a hotel, they owners have figured out how put together a beach bar that ticks all the necessary boxes for what we’ve come to expect from classic Caribbean beach bars. I’ve never been to Bequia but it’s quickly moving up my travel wish...

It’s been about a week since Hurricane Dorian struck the Bahamas. Most of the information I’ve been able to gather has been via social media, namely Facebook.

Since Hurricane Dorian, we haven’t been able to share many Instagram posts – that’s going to change. For the next few weeks, we’ll...

Putting this latest post together, I realized I hadn’t shared Instagram posts of our favorite beach bars from around the world since the end of July. I don’t really have a good excuse for it but my laziness (or maybe I was just busy?) has resulted in what might be the longest post of its kind since I started this series. The timing couldn’t be better – as the summer season winds down for some of our favorite destinations, beach bars...

When Foxy’s Bar tagged me in the below image of their Foxy’s Firewater Rum, it took me immediately back to the year “Be As You Are (Songs From An Old Blue Chair)” was released. One of my favorite albums by Kenny Chesney, it’s packed full of island tunes designed to carry you away to a land filled with palm trees and rum. One of the tunes, “Somewhere in the Sun,” mentions Foxy’s rum – “Oh I wish I was there tonight on Jost Van Dyke,...

One of the benefits of social media is being able to obtain up-to-the-minute status reports on some of your favorite destinations. It took on an even more important role for me the day Irma hit the Caribbean. Since that day, I’ve come to depend on it for daily updates on the places we fell in love with that were impacted by the hurricane. That’s why it’s nice to find posts such as the below one from @dejaviewstjohn (they are a must...
