----- The Bahamas ---------------
I have visited the Bahamas on several occasions. One thing that I love about the Bahamas is the clarity and amazing blue hues of the ocean. Florida only 60 miles away is a completely different story when it comes to how clear the water is. In the Bahamas you can be in water over 60 feet and see the bottom of the ocean. In Florida you are fortunate if you can see 5 feet beneath the water's surface.
This trip was a quick weekend cruise to Nassau with a total of 10 of us. The cruise was with the Bahamas Celebration, and it was a joke. The reasons are just too long to list, and I don't feel like congering up bad memories. What made this trip amazing was the people. We all got along great and there was no drama. Well, at least I didn't experience any drama with anyone and I guess that's all that counts for me at least. :-)
In Nassau we hired a taxi driver with a van to haul us around town. We went to the fortress at the top of the hill in Nassau. Our guide explaining the fortress had like zero personality. We also walked down the Queen's stairs which is a pretty cool stairway with waterfalls descending alongside. Then we went to Paradise island to hang at the beach, rent jet skis and go tour Atlantis. Yep it was a good day, well, less the sunburn that is.
