Cruisin'--Part 2

The next day after CocoCay, we docked in Nassau. Unless you are going to purchase diamonds, perfume or cigars, there really isn't much to the shopping. Its either extremely expensive, or extremely cheap. And it was extremely crowded.
So we rented a little car for the day...and I do mean little.
We drove all over the island and had lunch at a fun restaurant/resort.

Joel had a conch burger....ummm, yeah....I'm glad it was his meal and not mine.
We had a nice enough day just laughing, talking and being together, but honestly, I couldn't see what all the hoopla over the Bahamas was about. Until we drove back into town and crossed over to Paradise Island. That's where the beauty, action and fun stuff is. Of course, that's also where all the people are and where everything costs twice as much.
So Nassau wasn't my favorite destination ever, but I wouldn't trade the time I got to spend with Joel that phones, no kids, no worries. I just love that guy!

I went to Nassau when I was in college and I agree- as a town, it's nothing to write home about. But the beaches...WOW! Just being on a gorgeous beach like that was enough for me!
