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.

I’ve been on this Bahamas beach bars kick lately so when it came time to post this week’s beach bar pic, I knew it had to be one from our favorite quasi-Caribbean archipelago.
