Monday, the storms had passed, but the wind was still howling out of the west. We hiked up to The High Road to view the western shore. As soon as we crested the hill, we were sandblasted by the grit-filled wind, and greeted with a vista filled with crashing waves as far out as we could see, and palm trees bent back by the 40 knot winds.
On this part of the North Bimini, there is a structure called The Dolphin House. It's claim to fame is that the builder/proprietor, Ashley Saunders, has built it entirely out of "found materials". Whatever the sea washes up, and scrap salvaged from both new construction and demolition, all go into it with a flair for the creative.
But the amazing thing is the overwhelming amount of detailed and creative mossaics that adorn every square inch. Words just fail me, so I'll let the pictures do the talking.

When we returned to the dock, the lobster man was back, and he had a lot. After some dickering, Joan and Louise split an order of two dozen lobster tails for $80 plus two Corona's.
