Relaxing Weekend In Eleuthera

It’s FriYAY! I am always excited about the weekend. It’s my time to recharge from the energy-draining week. This weekend I might hang out with my gal pals/take my pawmily out for a beach day (looong overdue) or do absolutely nothing. How will you spend your weekend? Whatever you do, be safe and enjoy! Last Friday morning, Rory and I hopped on a 30 minutes flight to Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera. It was the most relaxing weekend we’ve had in a long while. I really needed a little break from Nassau.

STAY


AirBrush_2018101719493320181017_195255French Leave Resort was our escape home. It’s fairly new(4yrs) and is located in the heart of Governor’s Harbour. I’ve been hearing ooohs and aaahs about this resort, so we decided to give it a go and see what was so mystical about this place. When we set foot on property, I knew we wouldn’t regret our stay, and soon enough, we started ooohing and aaahing too. The staff were exceptional! Miss Jennifer and Nigel rolled out the red carpet for us, that’s where the magic lies.20181016_14540620181016_1508061539898555596_DSC_030820181016_14484720181016_14561620181016_15552020181016_16012820181016_144839 Our villa had stunning views of the bright and calm blue ocean. We had the luxury of the dreamiest pink sand beach ever which was just a 5 minutes golf cart ride away from our rest.20181018_17134720181018_18244120181018_18271220181018_18280420181018_18465820181016_084934 The highlight of my stay was definitely the sunset! Every evening I look forward to sunset at dinner, the restaurant on property has one of the best views in Governor’s Harbour. People from all over would swarm the deck to watch the sun in her glory, it’s worth every sand fly bite.DSC_061820181016_160322DSC_0623

FOOD


20181016_160928Unfortunately, most of the restaurants in Governor’s Harbour were closed due to the slow season, so, there were not many options for dining. Every single meal with the exception of a fresh conch salad was eaten at French Leave. The food was good but pricey. I really wish we had some authentic Bahamian food on the island…why? Because island food a di sweetest! 20181018_122124DSC_063420181018_122317IMG_20181018_124145_75920181018_122358

EXPLORATION


We had a few hours to play with before our flight back to Nassau, so we went cruising around Governor’s Harbour for a while.20181018_184457Our first stop was The Leon Levy National Plant Preserve which is growing in popularity. This a must see for Nature Lovers!20181016_155204DSC_0775AirBrush_20181018172226DSC_0751DSC_0736DSC_07251539899752005_DSC_0728DSC_0738From the plant preserve, we made a brief stop at the Library and an old Anglican church, the blue windows matched my denim romper.DSC_082120181018_183654

We grabbed a few soft drinks at the grocery store and headed to King Yellow’s Conch Shack to kill more time. If you find yourself in Governor’s Harbour and jonsing fresh conch salad, check out King Yellow, he is right down the road from Buccaneers, you’ll thank me later.20181017_19573320181017_195937IMG_20181016_074929_63820181018_18383020181018_183129 Eleuthera was a weekend to remember. It redefines relaxation and ease. When was the last time you had a relaxing weekend?
