Happy Dance Me my wife and daughter just got back from Exuma Bahamas after 3 weeks. they just happened to be filming POTC 2 on Sandy Cay. which is an island just off of Exuma. We had just happened to stop at a little roadside open air bar named Santannas( I took photo a few days later). All the boats and barges for the filming were anchored just off the shore. we were having lunch and a boat pulls up on the beach. Up walks Johnny Depp and some crew from the movie. so I am eating fried fish with Johnny Depp. He was super cool. He talked to everyone and went behind the bar to pose for pictures. Unfortunately, we didnt have a camera at the time.
I have to say it was the most surreal experience of my life. We didnt have any idea tht they were filming off the island until after we ate at Santannas.
We also partied at the two Turtles Inn with Orlando Bloom and a bunch of the crew a few nights later. You would never know he was a big actor. He kept gravitating to a Brit dive instructor I know named Amy. It is really weird to hang with actors cuz they are just the same as me and you.

As for the rumour mill, the reason they stopped filming was because of the tides. They have to film certain parts of the film when the tides are lower which wont be until a few months from now. They are going to be filming some scenes off of Nassau in a few weeks. This from the mouth of Orlando. My friend Amy is going to be doing some underwater dive work for them. If didnt have to work I would have too. Oh well.

So if any of you want to maybe catch up with some of the stars you might want to go to Exuma in a few months.

first, i'm a little upset that after i spent 10 minutes typing a reply, it was cancelled when i hit post b/c i had a link in it!!! not impressed!

anyway ..... here we go again ....

yes, i just got back from Exuma a week ago. i have been vacationing there since i was in grade 3, which is about 25yrs ago.

the bahamians continue to speak highly of their filming experience. the cast and crew of 250 people started filming again in Nov and went till Jan 13th. boats and barges carried everyone to the filming destination starting at 4am each day and returning sometime around 10pm.

the Goombay smash was a favourite.

mr. depp opted to stay on a private yacht while there. he loved the area so much, he also bought his own island.

and since i can't post links - insert the 3 W's before capecodtoday

btw - i personally know Dora, i have eaten her conch burgers, sat in those chairs, and snorkelled off both sides of stocking island! tres cool!
