Tar Bay Beach by the Yellow Bird House

There are more of these kinds of trees in Great Exuma than Palm Trees-this one is the back yard of the house we rented.

I forgot the name of this tree-but they are all over- I will try to find out.
Update:  These trees are called Casuarina, they do provide nice shade but Palm trees are great too~  Thanks Kwanza!

I love your photos of Exuma and your blog! The name of the tree is Casuarina tree, http://www.breef.org/Default.aspx?tabid=73 and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casuarina and it is literally taking over the islands of The Bahamas. It provides nice shade, but so does beautiful Palm trees.

Thank you again for your visit to Chat 'N' Chill and the cool pics and we hope you will return soon.

See you at the beach!
