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).

strange fruit; beach books (literally)
These are unusual bananas but when ripe they are very good. From the excellent nearby Island Farm. Spent the afternoon on my favorite beach going through a new book, The Beach Book, Eleuthera, which describes in detail with excellent pictures 135 of Eleuthera's many beaches (but not all). Is there any other island in the world that can boast a book about its beaches, let alone 2. For Eleuthera there are 2 such books (the other one is The Elusive Beaches of Eleuthera).
My favorite beach is not even in the second book, but it got top rating (3 stars) in the first.
