The Compleat Angler Hotel – Bimini, Bahamas

Ever since my first reading of Ernest Hemingway’s “Islands in the Stream” about 20 years ago, I’ve had this burning desire to visit Bimini, the tiny island in the Bahamas just 50 miles from miami.

Unfortunately, I didn’t make it soon enough for an over-night stay at one of Hemingway’s infamous “haunts” – the Compleat Angler Hotel which burned down in 2006.  A client brought me to Bimini for three days this week to photograph their wedding and I absolutely loved every minute on the island.  It has the most beautiful water and beaches I’ve ever seen.
