On our last day in Bimini, we visited the boatyard of Ansil Saunders.  He catches bonefish for a living and “on the side” builds wooden boats that are works of art.  He said that most of his clients are from the US.  All materials are the best quality wood.  He sold us a DVD of the “Creation Psalm” he wrote and an interview with him.  It is about God’s creation of the earth and his belief that no one can doubt God’s existence if one just observes what is here on earth.  Mr. Saunders has met many famous people and told us stories of Margaret Thatcher hugging him, Queen Elizabeth talking with him, and Dr. Martin Luther King going with him for a boat ride into the mangroves to write his last speech and eulogy.
