Yeah it can be straight forward and simple on a good day. :-)

And a FB makes a big difference. It very nice to be able to look down and out into the water when poking your way in between and around reefs and shoals that's for sure.

A nice spot for lunch on HI is the Blue Bar at Pink Sands.

If you want to do something off HI, you can take your tender over to Bottom Harbour to the S/SE across the bay there on Eleuthera to the Bottom Harbour Club. Look for the little dock coming off the beach. They usually have good local food, drinks and live music some weekends. The beach is nice to. And you pretty much always see turtles feeding in the grass flats there.

There are two good grocery stores there as well as a nice restaurant on the east tip of the island called the Shipyard. It has outside dinning with a great view over to Gun Point on Eleuthera. There are also a couple of ships store there as well.

I'd recommend renting a golf cart to tool around in for the day.
