Warderick Wells

There are a lot of trails here on Warderick Wells. The park headquarters is here and they maintain them very well (by Bahamas standards.) They blaze the trails with paint or rock cairns and then mark the intersections with signs pointing to the different attractions. Since we’re leaving the park tomorrow morning, we decided that maybe … Continue reading »
