Went to the Bahamas

So the Band From TV invited me to join them on their trip to play Atlantis in the Bahamas.
We took a charter jet at night to get there.
This is the view from the room.
But first it's time for a nap. Didn't really sleep on the plane. Woke up at 3pm and went exploring.

How fun! Enjoy! Drink a daiquiri for me!

beautiful ! wish I was on the beach swimming. what a way to spend the summer.

Brett said...

Try the Gunniess there if you like beer, they have a brewery there. If you dive, take a shuttle or taxi to Stuart Cove's on the SW side of Nassau, that's where they do movie filming and a lot of shark week stuff (and their dive sites are great).

Nice vocals on Mustang Sally...BTW

Henry Wasserman said...

I highly recommend swimming with the dolphins. It's really just sitting in the water while they do the tricks.

And do some snorkeling in God's fish tank (ie: the Ocean)

God Bless and enjoy Nassau. Was the steel band playing when you arrived?

Maria said...

As to the last post Jorge, if otopus is chewy it has been OVERCOOKED. Same thing with Calamari. Thought you'd like to know.

magui.30 said...

i've just talked with you in axn's chat. it was awesome. thank you for your time!

Topanga said...

Sorry.. every time I see Atlantis I think of Rob and Amber and I throw up a little in my mouth. Maybe if you show me more of what you saw when you went exploring I'll be able to associate Atlantis with happy thoughts that don't make me ill instead.

Hubs and I are going to Bermuda for 4 days on September 2. I'll post pictures of my exploration on my blog when I get back.

Elizabeth said...

So, I saw this:
