Some posters to the Eleuthera forums had mentioned that we had glaringly omitted some of their favorite beaches. Now, some we left out on purpose because either it wasn't safe to get there, trespassing was involved, the road was gated shut or entirely impassable. However, I was intrigued by the possibility that there might be more than 135 beaches on Eleuthera. I really wanted to find 150. It's the OCD in me.
So, prior to the trip I started scouting again, using the same satellite imagery, hoping to find some hidden gems. Sure enough, I found 16 NEW spots that were worthy of further exploration. They could be white rocks or greyish earth. They could be rocky cliffs. Or...they could be BEACHES!
Unfortunately, I was too busy with wedding activities to visit all the sites. I did one day of beach hunting with my bride in tow (she didn't take to the job), and we cataloged 3 new beaches. I'll be down to the island again in August to finish the mission.
The question I have for everybody is what do we do with the new beaches? Add a new chapter? Try to fit these beaches into the existing book, but as a new revision? Create a separate free downloadable version? Please share your thoughts.
Oh, and the beach hunters have picked the destination(s) for the next The Beach Book. We are scouting those beaches currently. If you could choose, which Caribbean island do you wish you had a beach book for?
