So as I mentioned in my previous post, my friend Kristen and I recently headed down to Nassau, Bahamas for a week of fun in the sun. Kristen was the first friend I made when I lived down in the Washington, DC area a few years ago and we have been close ever since. The last time we saw each other was when she came to visit me here in Canada two summers ago. This time we decided to leave our men at home and have a ladies getaway during her spring break (she's a high school teacher). I always find a way to escape the cold winter - I was so grateful for this vacation!
Young coconuts were in abundance on the trees, however, I had to buy them - for $5 each! Wild eh? All the way up here they only cost $2-3. They really know how to pull in the tourists, I tell ya. In Fiji and Vanuatu, I picked as many coconuts as my heart desired, for free. Guess I was hoping it would be like this in the Bahamas too. Anyway, I sure did enjoy this coconut to the max!
One day we ventured over to Paradise Island, in a little boat. This is where the infamous Atlantis Resort is - a huge attraction that has something for everyone - a grand casino, water park, private beachs, pools, spa, fitness center, great shopping, restaurants, aquariums, etc. We had fun exploring the place, and then walked back over a massive bridge (which is where this picture is taken from).
Here are some fish in one of the aquarium's at Atlantis. I think they're fabulous!
Alrighty, so that was a little blurb about what I've been up to lately. Sorry I don't have any exciting recipes or food ideas to share with you, but I promise that my next post will!!!
