Cruisin’ to Nassau, Bahamas Day 3

On day three we visited Nassau, Bahamas. This town was definitely nicer and cleaner than Freeport.

We decided to do an excursion in Freeport. We chose to do some snorkeling and sightseeing. Something we didn’t think about was the temperature of the water. It was FREEZING!

I’ll be honest, I had no desire to get in the water. I do not like cold. At all. However, since EVERYONE else on the catamaran got in the water, I sort of felt like I needed to!

So, I did, for like 5 minutes. I swam out to where my group was, said, Hey I am here, and then turned around and got back on the catamaran. It was much warmer, and there was Rum Punch. Yummy:)

After the ride on the Catamaran, we ate at the Hard Rock, then hopped in a taxi and headed to Atlantis.

That evening we decided to take a little trip to Senor Frog’s. It was quite the happening place. It’s been a long time since I have been in a bar. And, I must admit, it wasn’t something that I missed. But, it’s always nice to hang out with good friends and people watch:) And believe me, this cruise was a people watching oasis!

Cruisin’ to Freeport Bahamas, Day 1 and 2

Last Sunday we left for the Bahamas. We had an amazing time, but I definitely missed my kids. It’s different being away from them for Drs appts. This trip was for fun. I would be lying if I said I didn’t feel guilty for not taking them.

We chose not to do an excursion in Freeport, so stupid pictures were a

must!

We also decided to parasail. Why? Because I am a freakin’ idiot! I am terrified of heights! However, now I can say I did it. It was absolutely awful. I am sure the ocean was beautiful from up there, however, I truly have no idea. Pretty sure my eyes were closed the whole time. I kept screaming get me down and pointing down. Apparently when you are a billion miles up in the air they can’t hear you! NEVER AGAIN!

Cody also did it. And, according to him, the scenery was quite pretty. I will have to take his word for it!

Overall, Freeport was definitely a tourist town. But, we had a good time just taking in the sites and hanging on the beach.
