Every Sunday we walk the beach on Elbow Cay, downbound from the settlement of Hope Town, about a mile to our favorite beach bar, On da Beach.
For chicken souse. So special you have to order in advance – I think we might be on a permanent list now – as regulars.
Chicken souse is a glorious mix of tender chicken, potatoes, onion, broth and spices. Impossible to describe and impossibly delicious. Greater than the sum of its parts. And it’s served with a huge piece of johnny cake and hot grits. Yum, yum. Here’s the view:
Plus, we have this fabulous beach to walk.
Okay, sometimes we stop and just watch the ocean.
With some success.
But mostly, it’s about the ocean – the beautifully vibrant colors and the soft sound of the gentle surf (calm today).
Miles of sun and sand and that gorgeous Bahamian water.
We extend our walk – up to the north end and back. Just because.
