I gave up red meat earlier this year, but this is the one dish for which I’ll make an exception — sheep tongue souse! Have you tried it?
I often receive queries from blog followers about various topics related to visiting Abaco. To assist other readers who might have the same questions, I’m launching a regular Reader Q&A feature. Today’s Q&A has to do with importing pets to the Bahamas.
Question: Do you have to get a new pet import permit for Wrigley every time you bring him into the Bahamas?

The recent summer storms have resulted in some very beautiful and dramatic sunsets. Thanks to Michelle Pinder for this photo, taken a few evenings ago.
My cousin Evan Lowe came across this photo, which we believe was taken in Nassau somewhere around the late 1940s or early 1950s.
I’m super excited to introduce the Little House by the Ferry product line of island-inspired stationery, home décor and wall art, all based on my photographs of the Bahamas.
These are items that I would (and do) buy for myself and as gifts, and I hope you’ll like them as well. For me, they’re a way of bringing a bit of the Bahamas to wherever I happen to be.
To create this line, I’ve joined up with RedBubble, a company that helps photographers and artists convert their photography into premium-quality items available for online purchase. Though it’s not the only company offering this service, I chose RedBubble for several reasons:
- Their quality is top-notch. I’ve ordered numerous items from RedBubble and all have been of excellent quality. Their products are always well-packaged and considering they’re made to order, shipping times are quite speedy.
- Their product selection is extensive – everything from greeting cards to canvas prints to wall clocks. Most items come in different sizes and with the framed prints, you’re able to choose your frame style and colour and mat colour as well.
- They offer a generous, no-nonsense return policy.
RedBubble offers excellent value and exclusivity. You may be able to find cheaper items online, but I’m not interested in producing “cheap” items. I want to create products that you’ll be proud to give as a gift or display in your home.
You can also browse by image category by selecting the Portfolio link. For the moment, images are organized into the following categories: Beaches, Tropical Flowers (Colour and Black & White) and Sunrises and Sunsets. I’ll continue to add new photo collections and new images to the existing collections over time.
I really hope you like this product line, and I’d love to hear your feedback. If you have comments or questions that aren’t answered here or on RedBubble’s FAQ page, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks to my cousin-in-law, Dan Drewry, for this photo of a new friend at Coco Bay.
Treasure Cay Beach, Abaco
Just last night, I wondered why we haven’t had as many thunderstorms in recent days as we normally do this time of year. This morning, when I logged onto Facebook, Bahamian meteorologist Wayne Neely had posted an explanation:
“I have been getting a lot of calls and emails,” he wrote, “about the appearance of the ‘milky white skies’ and the red-hued appearance of the rising and setting sun over The Bahamas for the last few days. The haze is Saharan dust that has drifted more than 4,000 miles from Africa, and abnormally heavy concentrations currently are blanketing the main region of the Atlantic where storms develop.”
