Reader Escapes: Paul's Slice of Heaven

Name: Paul A.
Location: Cat Island, Bahamas
Lodging: Fernandez Bay Village
Description: Here are some shots to a slice of heaven I'll be returning to in a week. The Out Islands of the Bahamas are for the most part an undeveloped eden about an hour's flight east of south Florida. My friends and I rent the same cottage every couple of months on Cat Island at a resort called Fernandez Bay Village. I use the term resort loosely....

There are no hot stone massages or organic meals. Rather, there is a 40-mile long, virtually uninhabited island. There are beaches with no foot prints on them, reefs that aren't charted, nights illuminated by the stars, and a blissful quiet that turns my overworked brain into jelly.

There's nothing to do but kayak, dive, swim and read. Ahhhhhh. Having no telephone, no internet acess, no television and zero contact with the outside world for a couple of days is the ultimate tonic; even if it's bitter at first. Having all of that plus daily maid and turn-down service is almost too much to bear!
