My Mister and I took a long weekend at the end of January to enjoy our first vacation, albeit a very short vacation, without children. Since I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to work out, we didn’t stray far. (I know, I know...I have a son in the Navy stationed across the country and my daughter is in college, but still home...I'm taking baby steps!)
We took a four-day cruise to the Bahamas. The main purpose was to just relax. 2014 was a tough year and we needed a break after the holidays. I wasn’t even interested in getting off the ship…once you’ve seen the Bahamas, well…
However, by the time we reached Nassau I was ready to see some different people so we planned to just walk the island.
Here is a snapshot of our day…
Monkey hung around the room while we were out
This little lighthouse appealed to me as we were approaching Nassau. I thought is was neat with Atlantis in the background.
Just in case you need to know where you are
Pretty conch shells all in a row
Freshest conch salad around...I took a pass after observing the condition of the "kitchen"
The obligatory stop at the straw market
I'm never interested in the cheaply constructed commercial items
But I do love a large bowl made from palm
We had to get a little souvenir to commemorate our
First Empty Nesters' Cruise J
Every Caribbean island has a Senor Frogs which
we avoid at all costs
My Mister prefers hole in the wall places
"Casablanca" down stairs
Then, my Mister found this....
I'll be back soon to share more, including the quilt show.
Thanks for stopping by.
