The Poop Deck at Nassau Yacht Haven. The food was okay and reasonably priced by Nassau standards. Each Thursday, boaters in the harbor meet at the Green Parrot for lunch and to discuss all things boating. We didn't do lunch there because we looked at the menu and found it rather expensive ($17 for a fish sandwich). Just about any type of dining can be found in Nassau - from steak to Chinese to, of course, fresh seafood.
grand opening. Solomon's Fresh Market is located in the shopping center across the street from the Nassau Harbor Club Marina. This is a true supermarket and the best surprise was that the prices for most items were equal to what we paid for groceries in the States. Walking in the front door is like walking into a Publix or Trader Joes. There is a large section for fresh fruits and vegetables, a wide selection of meat and seafood and mostly organic products in the shelves. The store also has a deli that sells sliced meats and a bakery that makes fresh bread and other baked goods. You can buy sandwiches and salads and eat at the booths set up in the market. It was pretty incredible to find this here, and we took advantage to restock some of our supplies before heading down the Exuma chain. There is a pharmacy, Dairy Queen, Domino's Pizza, Radio Shack and several other shops in the center. The local officials were making a celebration of it with speeches and a steel drum band set up in the parking lot.
If all goes well, we should be on our way very shortly. During our time here we took advantage of being in the harbor to do an oil change and some minor maintenance. The next stop is the northern Exumas. We're not sure what the internet service will be like so the postings may not be as often. When we have a good connection, we'll bring you up to date.
