Near the northern tip of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, Glass Window Bridge is a narrow isthmus separating the deep blue Atlantic Ocean from the sheltered waters of the Great Bahama Bank. The road traversing this dramatic stretch of rock has been washed away by hurricanes and repaired several times — and can be as treacherous in stormy weather as it is magical when the seas are calm.
