Dec 31, 2011 - Nassau, Bahamas

 Nassau, Bahamas: It’s a close call but we’re thinking this is our favourite stop. From the beautiful waterfront and resort style streets and shops to the staid white suited police officers and historic government house, this is a wonderful destination and we are very happy that we have the opportunity to enjoy it even if just for a few hours.

Dec 29, 2011 - Heading to Nassau

Hi All! We traveled from Chubb Cay to Nassau today. We almost made it before dark except they told us to wait until the cruise ships left the harbor. So...we had an interesting late night trip into the harbor. It's amazing how different it looks like at night. Luckily we have been here enough times that all's well. Hope all is well with you and yours. Thanks for stopping by. Cathie on s/v INTERLUDE. OUT.

Mar 28, 2011 - Day 1-The Junkanoo Festival

There are many ways to get to Nassau.The most popular forms of transportation are by airplane or cruise ship. The first day I would definitely go to the Junkanoo festival in downtown Nassau.This fun-filled event takes place the day after Christmas, or Boxing Day. The festival includes singing, dancing,and the playing of various loud instruments such as drums of all kinds. I see it as a similar form of Marti Gras. Masks and crazy costumes are worn while people dance to music played by skilled musicians.This is a great Christmas...

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...
