Postcard from the Bahamas #5

We first visited Miss Emily’s Blue Bee Bar in 1974 and were the only white folks there that night.
Miss Emily claims to have “invented” the Goombay Smash - a claim that I’ve never heard disputed.

Miss Emily passed away a few years ago but her granddaughter served me a cold beer.
Kalik claims to be the national beer of the Bahamas - I don’t know if that’s true but it sure hit the spot on a hot afternoon.
The ceiling is covered with autographed tee shirts and the walls a covered with business cards and dollar bills.
The bar is also a restaurant now and about three or four times bigger than it was in ’74.
Business is good.  Miss Emily would be proud.

Tomorrow we leave for Hope Town.
