  Small waterfall at Garden of the Groves
by deecat

For a place to pause and reflect on the natural beauty of the Bahamas, Garden of the Groves "fits the bill." Garden of the Groves is 12 acres of winding paths, cascading waterfalls, a picturesque chapel on the hill, and a variety of local animals. In addition, there is a petting zoo for children.
I was most interested in the botanical gardens with incredible Flora. But I also enjoyed the trails for bird watchers, the beautiful Grand Bahama Park, and the wonderous waterfalls. It was fun just to try to identify indigenous plants, flowers and wildlife from around the world.
The photograph was taken in the late 1960's on one of our visits when we stayed in a friend's condo. It's so strange to see us so young!
There is a small cafe called Palmetto Cafe, which is a good place to stop for a drink or a snack. While there, visit Julia the parrot.
