We met early and easily in Pompey Square for a 3-stop walk. Ron is a native Bahamian with much to relate about the history of the islands. Our first stop at Talking Sticks, featured a parrot named Max and delicious Conch fritters. I was shocked when Lucky then brought a full plate, with rice and peas, chicken curry, plantains, and more, each as mouthwatering as the last. The strolls between stops are short, and we soon passed the pink government building to the impressive Greycliff Hotel, which features an astounding collection of wine, including the oldest drinkable bottle in the world. The last stop was Bahamian Barrels for wine of our own. I’ve learned to avoid wineries in areas not known for great grapes, and would not have chosen this stop for myself, but I was surprised by a truly top-notch tasting experience. I look back on this walking tour as one of my most cherished travels.
