The city of Nassau is vast in its history, having once served as a pirate republic, a haven for thieves, murderers and outcasts in the 1700s. Today it is the hub of hundreds of cruise ship passengers in search of adventure.

Nassau is old. It’s the center of commerce, politics and law in the country. While much of the island of New Providence has changed with the times there are traces of The Bahamas’ colonial history in the city.

A few weeks ago I decided to walk around Bay Street, the heart of the city.

Funny story. On my commute home every day, I drive pass this sight. One day I had to stop and capture it.

A few days ago I was at it again. This time I went to Potter’s Cay Dock, the place to go for good conch salad.
