Ex-hubby and I paid a visit to your beautiful homeland back in the mid-1980's, and had the best time of our lives! Ahhhhh, the memories of the Bahamas!
You mentioned wanting a quiet, oceany, cultural place to work, and I have just the perfect place for you to consider. It's in San Luis Obispo, California! Great place, great town, great people, wonderful ocean views, and even beautiful mountain views!!!
I did a traveling assignment there once, and loved it!
Pismo Beach was my daily hangout! Another nice city nearby to visit is Solvang...a wonderful quaint Dutch Village for shopping, sightseeing, and such.
Happy travels to you, Keisha!
