Artist Vision: I moored the sailboat just offshore of a seemingly deserted island after a long two-day journey through the warm waters of the Bahamas, and proceeded by foot through the shallow water to come ashore. I began looking for a clearing in the thick tropical foliage for a place to build a small overnight shelter, as the sun was getting low on the horizon. After setting up a “good-enough” spot for the night, I was curious to see the rest of the island, so I started walking north along the warm beach. As I rounded a bank of sand, I noticed the familiar scent of spices and herbs along with the faint waft of coconut, pineapple and rum. A short walk across the clearing and around one more bank of pink tinted sand, I discovered a charming wooden shack with a rusty tin roof built right on the edge of the water. Light smoke was drifting out over the water from the shack, with a sign that read, Seaside Bar & Grill. With my heart racing and my mouth watering, I quickly walked up the wooden steps and across the small boardwalk to take a seat. After an evening of incredible seafood and rum, I spent the next day sailing back up through the islands towards Nassau, and although I’ve tried many times since, I have never stumbled across that island again.
Artist Comments: "Moments like this are so exciting. The accidental discovery of new places, people and experiences, is a moment that can inspire stories that may be true, made-up, or a combination of sorts. Maybe some of this actually happened, or maybe some of it didn’t."
