Nassau

Jan 22, 2011 - Nassau

Hi we had a great three days of sailing to the Bahamas, crossing the gulf stream with 15 knts steady on the beam from the south. The auto pilot worked fine while we fished, no luck there. We stayed for the night behind Gun Cay and we stayed the next day as friends called us on the radio from not to far away. We had just finished swimming when a fishing skiff came by with lobster for sale, 10 tails for 20 dollars, allright. We left for Chub Cay at 4 am for a 12 hr cruise, Had to motor all the way as the 12 ft deep of the Bahamas bank was...

Nov 24, 2010 - Cococay And Nassau

We had beautiful sail overnight to Royal Carribean's private island of Cococay, Bahamas and we were tendered to shore early morning Saturday November 20. Unfortunately it was a chilly / windy day and we didn't make our Snorkel trip but enjoyed a leisurely walk around the island and some very quiet time lounging at the beach. After a BBQ lunch we made our way back to the ship for another evening of dinner, strolling and relaxing. The next day we arrived early in Nassau, Bahamas and were totally thrilled with the surrounding areas. We took a...

Apr 21, 2010 - Nassau, Bahamas

Wednesday, April 21, 2010 Nassau, Bahamas Did not sleep well, waters are still calm. Took my walk on the track then it was breakfast with Lois & Kay. We met at end of pier and walked into town and to the straw market. It sure was crowded and HOT. All sorts of smells that you certainly did not want to know the source of. We also walked down the main drag shopping as we went. I bought nothing but, they did. I decided to run back to the boat for a restroom and heat break. After a shower and rest I was feeling much better so thought I would...

Apr 20, 2010 - Still cruising to Nassau

Woke up at 6 but, managed to go back to sleep till 9. Had to rush to breakfast before they shut it down at 9:30. After stuffing my face I walked a mile on the track, swam in the pool, and took my shower, then at lunch…lol, lots of eating on a cruise. I was invited to tour the straw market in Nassau tomorrow with two ladies I had a lunch with, Lois & Kay. Super nice ladies who tour the world together. Rushed to make the “Gotta Dance” movie followed by a hip hop lesson. That wore me out so I walked the deck and found a lovely spot to watch...

Apr 19, 2010 - Cruising from Gulf of Texas to Nassau, Bahamas

Monday, April 14, 2010 Cruising from Gulf of Texas to Nassau, Bahamas It’s just me. I woke up to enjoy a seated breakfast with four other ladies, all of us excited for our first day. There are lots of lady friends traveling on this cruise and lots of couples my age or older. I have found that I prefer to eat my breakfast, lunch and dinner at the seated dining room times. In my opinion the food is better and you always have a seat, no hunting or forging. Had such a great time visiting I had to rush to my meringue (yes, I butchered this...

Mar 1, 2010 - day of discovery

Galapagos Blog 4 Feb 28th continued. After lunch, we all went on a long hike on North Seymour Island. What we didn’t seen would be easier to list! The landing on the rocky coast was a little tricky, especially when the engine kept stopping, but we eventually all managed to get ashore. The first sight was sea lions, everywhere. Lot’s of babies snoozing in the afternoon sun, waiting for Mum to come back with supper. When I mean everywhere, I mean on the trails, the rocks and underfoot. One mewling baby waddled along the beach and stopped and...

Mar 1, 2010 - first day on boat

Update # 3 Sunday 28th We are now on board the Islander just off of Baltra Island. Our day started with a bit of a shock, being woken up at 4:30 am for a 5:30 am pickup to the airport. We met a couple of shipmates in the lobby. At the airport we had to go through a special scan where they determined that we were not carrying anything illegal to the Islands. The staff checked us in and we were shown to the VIP lounge where some food and coffee awaited us. When the plane was ready for boarding, we were led to the plane first. The flight was...

Feb 27, 2010 - We reach!

Update # 1 Here we are in Miami airport. Brent made it too! Brent and Robin have been whisked off to a private lounge while Jeff and I are slumming it in the hotel restaurant for lunch. Two glasses of wine later and really good salads, we are not begrudging them their cheese and crackers. We leave for Quito at 3:20 pm . It’s a three hour plus flight, so won’t arrive until nightfall. Tomorrow we have a guided tour and Robin and I are going shopping. See you then. Oh, oh! They are changing the brakes on the plane. We don’t need them until we...

Feb 27, 2010 - day 2 in quito

Day 2 Quito February 27th 2010 No signs of altitude sickness despite not doing anything they recommended. But 6:30 am came very early. Hotel breakfast was amazing with ceviche, old goat stew and lot’s of local fruits. All had descriptions in English. Yum. 9am tour of the historic part of Quito. We saw just about every one of the 24 churches in the area, including the Baroque Jesuit church complete with all of its 7 tons of gold leaf! Our guide was a fount of knowledge, but talked and talked. I must admit we switched off after a while. But...

Feb 19, 2010 - Election sort of over

Election now over Brent can get the suitcases down and work out how to pack it. Part of the journey each suitcase can not weigh more than 40lbs. That's from Guayaquil to Baltra return. That will be a welcome change when the ladies have to pack the essentials and not also the maybes. Then maybe Brent and I can lift them?! Only a few days to go...

Feb 6, 2010 - Bahamas Cruise Vol.II

Day 3—Nassau By 8 AM the ship had docked in Nassau, about 130 miles from Freeport. Compared to Freeport, where the ship had docked in a more isolated area, the dock in Nassau was right next to the town. Nassau is the capital of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. Its population of about 260,000 is 80% of the entire Bahamian population. Nassau has an attractive harbor, a colorful blend of old world and colonial architecture and a busy port. By eleven o’clock the four of us had boarded a boat that ferried us out to a “semi-sub” near Athol...
