Back from the Bahamas



We had a wonderful time in the Bahamas and we're very happy to be home again. We had rain only twice while we were there - the first evening we arrived, and the morning we left. Meanwhile, Alabama was getting soaked with wonderful rain.

While there, we stayed at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island. The resort is huge, so every day we got in great walks. Steve swam in the ocean two days (while I read on the beach), and we enjoyed the aquariums:


and looking through the shops in the Marina Village:



and at the yachts in the marina:


The view from our room was stunning:

The food was unbelievably delicious, both at the resort and in Nassau. And we enjoyed wandering around Nassau on foot, in a taxi, and in a horse-drawn carriage. We visited two museums, the straw market, the government house, the public library, a bookstore, and window-shopped countless other stores.






Steve's company was very generous. They covered all the costs of this trip. It was great to see some of Steve's co-workers and their spouses (and some brought their children, too), and to meet others I had not met before. We had a very entertaining and relaxing time.

Best of all (for me!) I had three naps, was able to read three books, knit a sock and started another, and started a shawl.

We're both well-rested and ready to resume our normal duties!

Tempting Travelogue, as I have never been to the Bahamas.

Sounds like there may be more trip-related posts in the form of book reviews and knitting techniques.

Blessings fm GA,

What a beautiful place! It's nice that the weather cooperated while you were there. And, you know it's a true vacation when you can say you are well-rested when you get home.
