There's a certain subset of Bahamians that vehemently agree that the official beach season is from Mother's Day in May to the National Heroes Holiday in October. Otherwise, the ocean is categorically too cold. My mother is a card carrying member of this group. Making the visits only "in season" and often with a car full of her hard partying posse of now septuagenarians.
This collection was first started from a cast of a seafan she beachcombed one such day some years back and gifted to me. It is perhaps my favorite of the collections and is ever evolving.
