In The Bahamas

I know it's been more than a month since I've posted. I was really busy in November with events because I knew I wouldn't have time to do any in December. December was busy with school and preparing for our vacation. We left on Saturday for Florida, stayed there a couple of days, then flew to Grand Bahama for four days. We're waiting at the airport now for our flight back to Florida for a couple more days. We'll get back home on Christmas Eve. I promise to try to post more once I get back home. In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy seeing some of our trip.

Here is a picture of the hotel from the beach. We thought it kind of looked like a ship the way the balconies on the end were staggered.

Here is the view from our room. We just stepped onto the balcony and got a beautiful view of the harbor.
Here is the ocean through the palm trees on the grounds.

We went to a bonfire on the second night - it was windy and cold, but it was a great time!

I found this sign on a tour we went on. There is so much beautiful wildlife and plant life on the island.

Here is a small lizard we saw on the wall of a night club when we were walking one day - these little guys are everywhere here.

Rich and a man from Ohio tied on a drinking contest - the winners drank the entire drink through a straw the quickest. The split the prize - a half pint of Bacardi Gold. Rich was one of the quickest suckers.

We just loved the view of the ocean. There was a great rock formation by the ocean right in front of the Manor House.

Coconuts were growing everywhere!!!

They were putting up the plywood base for a gingerbread house as we checked in. Over the next three days, they covered it with gingerbread and decorated it. I thought it turned out very inviting.

We at lunch at a poolside grill - great burgers and lots of birds watching for crumbs to drop.

This is the last view we enjoyed before leaving the resort. It was absolutely beautiful and hard to leave.
