This beautiful area known as Fort Montague Beach on the grounds of Fort Montague in eastern New Providence in the Bahamas, is quiet and now a place for family fun, picnics, and sailing regattas. But, on April 13th, 1783 an American Loyalist by the name of Colonel Andrew Deveaux and a handful of "Ragged Militia"' used the peaceful calm waters in this photo to sneak into Nassau. They had arrived to defend the city of Nassau from the Spanish who had seized the island and taken residence in Government House.
This proves how important the access routes by sea are to our country, both in the past and in the present and future.
I believe that this photo should be included in the competition because it will make people become aware of our beautiful sea and its importance for our survival.
