More Bahamas with more to come

While Mike was out on/in the water for the week, I got used to the local bus system;)  Made my way to the west end of the island to check out the Clifton Heritage National Park:

This house was owned by the Whylly family in the mid 1800s. They were British loyalists who were given land on the island as to compensate for their losses in the American colonies after the American Revolution.

Sacred Space, also inside the park

the plantation house
During the early 1800s, there were as many as 67 slaves on this plantation
slaves quarters

 Back at the resort, someone had to attend the festivities! No, no toga for me!
some of the staff at the resort are on the entertainment committee
