Bahamas

Nelson and I just got back from our vacation on Grand Bahama Island. It was very very relaxing. Mostly we hung out around the pool and beach, but we also went kayaking, snorkeling, jet skiing, etc. I already miss the blue seas and skies.




This is our Minas Tirith sandcastle....and the Two towers right behind it. We got really badly sunburned building sandcastles all afternoon. The first time we only had a plastic cup from our pina coladas so we went out and bought a toy bucket and shovel.






We went kayaking twice- once thru a mangrove forest, and once on the ocean. We zigzagged a lot and ran into trees, but we never tipped over.



This is Peterson Cay. It's about 3/4 of a mile offshore and it's really just a tiny slip of sand. We kayaked to it and then snorkeled around the whole island. I brought an underwater camera case to take pictures. It's really just a glorified ziploc bag, but it worked!


I might post more pics later.

the sand castle looks great - only vacationing animators would make such a thing. And what strange looking fish they have... I'm sold for my next vacation. mmm
