BASICS: "Hummingbirds.....where is the person, I ask, who, on observing this glittering fragment of the rainbow, would not pause, admire, and turn his mind with reverence..." (J. J. Audubon).
This is a blog about my summer life at the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary, at my winter garden, Calypso, in the Bahamas, and aspects of life in general.
This private sanctuary is now permanently closed to the general public, as a result of a lawsuit brought by a neighbor. Only my friends and personal guests may visit (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu).

Paddleboarding Turtle Pond
My son Rafael owns Soposup, Maine's leading paddleboard store, and organizes various paddleboard events. He brought a couple of inflatable boards with him on his recent trip here, and of course paddleboarded many beaches and waves. Here's a glimpse of him and his son Dylan on Turtle Pond, a beautiful sheltered saltwater pond lined with mangroves. The pond indeed has many large turtles, some as big as a dining room table.
