– Posted in: Uncategorized

Point O’ Vue is great for families. In a world where we are constantly bombarded with information through iPhones, Blackberries and laptops and plug in through Wii, Xbox, Netflix and Hulu, it becomes harder to connect with those we love. Eleuthera is an out island in the bahamas, far away from the hustle and bustle

In the 1940’s Arthur Vining Davis (who ran Alcoa and later Arvida) acquired about 20,000 acres in south Eleuthera to develop resorts.

Boating on the Bay

– Posted in: Uncategorized

It’s windy on Winding Bay today with whitecaps galore. Boating is really fun on the Bay but my rule is that if there are whitecaps I’ll not go out on the boat, a 13-foot Boston Whaler Sport. Our first boat here was an inflatable raft with an electric motor that I brought down from Ohio

Getting Started

Greetings to all! I’ve been going to Eleuthera since 1970, have a home on Winding Bay, and simply love the island. It’s spiritual for me, my family and many guests.
