ANDROS ISLAND
WE flew our own 182 Skylane here.  There's nothing to do.  No cable/TV. NO
Malls,  No Shopping, No Radio, No concierge..... But yes to great ocean
front views.  yes to great food, yes to  great interaction with other
guests, yes it's a great place to relax.  I mean relax....
relax....relax....  relax... no one bothers you-except your   wife or
girlfriend until you remind  them about_______.....  All the Cabins are
beach front the diving was O.K.....It's funny I used to have to go Tahiti
to see a lion fish but now there in the Caribbean killing lots of
defenseless fish.  Loved small Hope Bay Lodge.  Everything was
all-inclusive.  This included alcohol.  you would make your own drink if
you wanted or the bartender would show you how.  the trip to Batik Factory
is not to be missed.  The Bicycles rides to the blue hole was great...
don't recommenced tour of island nothing to see.   Remember AUTEC (ATLANTIC
Underwater Testing Evaluation Center) is there.  You'll wake up one morning
seeing lots of ships, subs and helicopters carrying dummy test torpedoes
back/forth look like WWIII.  IT was a great place.  The dive  Shop has 
greatest people just a great time keep in mind all the Bahamas are fished
out don't fool yourself but it's still fun. remember  only  half  of  the 
cabins  have  AC I'll  be  back  had  great  time
