Time To Deflate Photo
This is Spanish Wells, Bahamas. A bunch of white racist South Carolinians moved there in the 1800s,  if I remember correctly, and inbreeding was and still is a problem. All black people have to leave the island every evening to this day. The beach is gorgeous. I didn't know any of this when I visited the island in 1985.


We arrived at teeny tiny North Eleuthera airport and took a 20 minute water taxi ride to the island and saw several ditched drug planes in the water. Some are still there, I checked Google Earth. lol
I was in charge of the music and one song I brought was Little Pink Houses.


Peace.
