Just booked a flight to a very accessible tropical island December 7th through the 11th. If anyone is interested in some DIY action drop me a note.

Everything being done on the cheap, as usual.

Glad to see the board is up again:cool:

I have my very cheap trip booked to a very accessible island set for Jan. 14-18... love to hear where you are headed. Always looking for cheap bones.

I'm heading to Eleuthera January 26th to the 31st. I'll be staying in the Governors Harbor area. If anyone will be around drop me a note. It will be my first stay on Eleuthera so any advice is welcome.

Thanks, Marty

Sounds tempt-ing... but I have just started a large work project that will probably have me tied up thru that time frame. I am still targeting Feb for something BTW

Sorry I can't make it Dave.
It would have been good to go fishing together again.

I'm out till after the new year, but will then have some time available. Would love to get out for a DIY this winter if we could work something out.

If you're staying on Eleuthera I would say tippy's for dinner and look around there is plenty of DIY info on Eleuthera. Vince could help you out for sure. I liked the area south by Tennum bay and a small area a few miles north of Governor's harbor. It's a good compromise island between fishing and ammenities.

I also liked snorkeling the ocean side by the old navy base and club med.

I am going back to Eleuthera in April . Before then be prepared for wind !

Small pink gotchas and turneffe crabs were the ticket for me last year.

There is a new bar cafe - the boat house ? Just down the road from tippys which is better value. Also, don't miss the Friday night fish fry at governors harbour

I'll be there in April too. 10th straight year. here are some more tips:

Nort'Side Eleuthera Restaurant,
phone: 334-2573. On the Atlantic side of Rock Sound. Simple spot serving lunch & dinner. Very good food, reasonably priced. At the end of Fish Street turn left. Rosy, the owner is a really pleasant person to talk to.

Sammy's Restaurant & Bar
phone: 334-2121. In Rock Sound, Albury's Lane, near Catholic Church St. Ann's. Open all year daily from 8a.m. to 10p.m. Serving breakfast, lunch & dinner.

these places are very reasonably priced compared to governor's harbor, which has gotten quite expensive. Still, some good restaurants mentioned here in GH.

internet places:

Unique Village Hotel/restaurant has wi-fi. Just ask for the password/WEP key to access at the bar/restaurant or your room.

Governor’s Harbor There is high-speed access available in the Haynes Library located in Governor’s Harbor, for a small hourly fee of $5.00.

There is now public internet access in South Palmetto Point...prices are the same as the Haynes Public Library...go to the end of the road past Mate and Jenny's towards the Caribbean, almost to the dock, and it is in the old pink Palmetto Point Clinic building on the right, across from the convenience store.

Rock Sound
There is now public access to computers at the "Eleuthera Stationery Store" in the middle of Rock Sound. Charges are: $4 for access, and $.25 per minute. The Northside Inn will let you use their high speed internet if staying there.
