Looking forward to a wedding this weekend in Gregory Town Eleuthera at the Cove. Eleuthera is 110 miles (180 km) long and in some places little more a few hundred feet wide (Glass Window Bridge pictured below). The eastern side of the island faces the Atlantic Ocean while the western side faces the Great Bahama Bank, one of the two Bahama Banks.
Here’s a few of my favorites from last time…
The Island of Eleuthera lies 50 miles (80 km) east of the capital of the Bahamas, Nassau. The name “Eleuthera” is derived from the Greek word eleutheros, meaning “free.”
“I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible. What other religion do we need? …. Is it beauty and genius they want to see? Do they seek a sense of the sublime? Let them come to New York, stand on the shore of the Hudson, look and kneel. When I see the city from my window – no, I don’t feel how small I am – but I feel that if a war came to threaten this, I would like to throw myself into space, over the city, and protect these buildings with my body.” — Howard Roark in Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead.
