An Eleuthera Day: Ten Bay Beach

SunnyDay Mercantile

I'm STILL getting through the hundreds of photos I took in Eluethera and wanted to share with you some images from the beautiful beach at Ten Bay.  Ten Bay sits between Palmetto Point and Savannah Sound on the Caribbean side of Eleuthera.  If you are driving South on Queen's Highway keep a keen eye out for the yellow "Beach Access" sign which marks the nondescript gravel road, that's your turn, bump along for about 15 minutes and you'll reach the water.  

Ten Bay was one of the best beaches I visited while in Eleuthera.  It is everything most would want from a Caribbean cove - super secluded, gorgeous, calm blue water, and sugar white sand - to me however, one of the most fascinating components about this small, sunny slice of heaven were the trees.  

These fallen monsters  lined the coastline and provided such an array of textures and shapes.  In a way they felt architectural.  The branches, smoothed by wind and water, twisted to create imperfect spaces, where light could fall through like a stained glass window.  I couldn't help but take shot after shot, climbing over their roots and up their trunks, all the while feeling as small as ant next to these proud old giants.  

If you look closely at a tree you’ll notice it’s knots and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully.
