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.
French 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. 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. 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.
Unfortunately, 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!
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.Our first stop was The Leon Levy National Plant Preserve which is growing in popularity. This a must see for Nature Lovers!From the plant preserve, we made a brief stop at the Library and an old Anglican church, the blue windows matched my denim romper.
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. Eleuthera was a weekend to remember. It redefines relaxation and ease. When was the last time you had a relaxing weekend?
