I know I’m breaking some sort of rule here, because when you find a place as special as Harbour Island, Bahamas, you’re not supposed to share it with others, you want to keep it to yourself. But Harbour Island did something to me. It’s not all that easy to get there. You have to fly a propeller plane from Miami to Eleuthera, Bahamas, then jump in a cab to the harbour and then travel the last bit by taxi boat.
As soon as I set foot on Harbour Island, Waverly came up and hugged me.
We had only talked once on the phone, and then just in a conference call with several others, so I didn’t know her and David at all. But as soon as we arrived, all that changed. Waverly and David made sure we were part of their family and friends, invited us to their dinner parties and treated us like guests. Maybe it’s a Texan thing, Waverly and David live in Dallas. I don’t think I’ve heard people say “y’all” that much in my entire life.
“Y’all are family now”.
“Y’all call us when you’re in Dallas. Don’t you dare not to”.
“Y’all having a good time? Let us know if you need anything”.
Add the perfect planning by Stefanie from Yifat Oren & Associates and the absolute bliss of Harbour Island to that and our five days there was some of the most fantastic in my career, if not my life.
Good times with beautiful, sweet, sweet people.
