A while back I showed you some beach views of Eastern Nassau. This post has views of the same area but I did it in the form of a video instead. It was an unbelievably hot day and there was nothing to do but sit on the beach in the shade a tree and feel the refreshing breeze on my face. Just give yourself an hour or two out here and you’ll forget that the rest of the world even exists. Try it!
The video was recorded on the drive back from Yamacraw beach and heading along Eastern Road. You will get little peeks of Nassau’s Eastern coast as well as glimpse the beautiful houses that line the shore. Could the beat in the background be any more perfect? Enjoy!
I’ve always been fascinated by the beach. A cliché, maybe. But I cannot help getting lost in the different shades of blue, the warm sea- breeze on my face and the eternal nature of the waves that never cease their patrol of the shore. Going to the beach is one of my favourite pastimes, and even now, whenever I go back home to Jamaica two or three times for the year I try to fit it onto my list of to-do’s. Being converted into a resident of the Sunshine City (Portmore) means I have easy access to two or three beaches. And while those lucky enough to live in places like Negril and Montego Bay might scoff at the idea of Hellshire as a choice beach, I ignore and smile quietly to myself. I enjoy the simple pleasure of the salty breeze, warm water, the smell of fried fish, the pure vibes of the reggae beat in the background, intermingled with the laughter of splashing kids yet too young to realize how lucky they are to be enjoying this wonder… Who can dare tell me this isn’t heaven!

So how do I recreate this scene now that most of my days are spent in Nassau? Continue reading →
