Bahama Mama

WORDFUL WEDNESDAY.... another opportunity for me to share a picture and yap, yap, yap about it(two of my favorite things)!! Make sure to check out Angie's Seven Clown Circus to get your earful today!! :)

A couple of years ago, my two close friends and I went to the Bahamas.... we were treated, by our awesome men, to a girls weekend trip to beautiful Nassau. We flew in early afternoon on Friday, checked in at the Atlantis, did all the fun "touristy" (is that even a word) stuff, had nice dinners, gambled, sunbathed, drank many adult beverages, met lots of new people, partied and then went home Sunday afternoon!! This picture was taken on Saturday; we woke up feeling not too good (if you know what I mean), but got our tired little butts up and out and headed to the beautiful beach. I swear the water in the Bahamas is just beautiful--bright blue and crystal clear. We laid out there all day, with sunscreen of course, baking in the sun, sipping on our drinks, sticking our toes in the soft sand....wake-up, I was just daydreaming for a minute that I was back in that spot...awwww!! Anyway, in the background of the picture, you can see someone parasailing.....well, I.was.supposed.to.do.that. I bought my pass, signed the consent & did my "safety briefing"; but we met a bunch of people on the beach and ended up talking and drinking way too long and before I knew it I didn't feel comfortable going out to do it (i can't believe had any common sense after the amount of "drinks" I'd had). So, I was told I could bring my pass back the next day and do it before we left to go home!! Guess what-- when we got up Sunday morning and walked our tired butts out to the beach, there was a "Red Flag Warning" up (meaning the wind was too high and seas were too rough for anyone to be out in the water). BOO...I've always wanted to parasail!! Of course that did not ruin the trip; although it would've been so much fun to do it (i'm a BIG adrenaline junkie)!!
Anyone been to the Bahamas? If so, did you happen to eat at the Greycliff? And even better, did you get to parasail??

At least you have a good excuse to go back: "But I didn't get to go parasailing!"

What a great trip!

I spent time in the Bahamas as an au pair for Club Med for one month awhile back. So, while I didn't get to see TOO much of the real island & stayed mostly within the resort it certainly was beautiful. I want to go stay in a hut that's propped up on 4 legs out in the ocean.

1st... I am droooooling over that picture. We need to become "real life" friends so that I am included in these "weekend trips" to Nassau! Also, I just saw that you apparently live in Florida... not TOO far from me! Consider the invitation to come hang with me and my friends open! I will even treat you to a penis balloon hat! :)

The water in the Bahamas is incredible. I can't believe you changed your mind AFTER a few drinks. It's usually the other way around. I'm sorry about the bad winds the next day. Bummer!
