Bahama Me (Cruise part 2)

March 18, 2012 at 11:00 am Leave a comment

A little more than one week ago I was on the Carnival Destiny–a cruise that turned out to be full of shenanigans and lots of bonding time with some of my best friends.

The cruise was great, but the actual cruising part was a little rough. So when we finally docked in the Bahamas on Thursday afternoon… we were SO excited πŸ™‚

Even if it was a little rainy and cloudy, nothing could have stopped us from hitting the Bahamas. And by the time we made it to the beach, the sun had peeked itself out just long enough for us to take a dip in the pretty teal water.

The funny named beach we found first. Not too junky, but lots of people.

Alexis and Ryan...modeling πŸ™‚

Getting our toes wet

After a good few hours on the beach on Thursday, half of us split off from the beach crew on Friday. First we took a tour of the Bahamas, Paradise Island and Atlantis.

our gang in Atlantis

It's called the Million Dollar chair. I am pretty sure it was plastic, though.

Atlantis and Paradise Island were neat to see. But then we got on a boat called the Blue Manta…

and went snorkeling!

We were the first ones in the water

Then came Ryan and Alexis

Kristie and Danny

We saw tons of fish…and I got snippets of videos of them. I’d post them, but each video is about 5 seconds long. I see a fish, squeal with excitement and then it cuts off. I need to get better with a video camera πŸ™‚

So many little fish!

Ky got really close to this lion fish, which is actually super poisonous. It was the only thing our captain told us to stay away from!

This little guy looks like he has teeth

Oh hi

Snorkeling was amazing–Friday was definitely my favorite day of the trip!

When we got back on the boat we had our final dinner,

got our final towel animal,

It took me a very long time to figure out he is a seal πŸ™‚

and then it was back to Miami and then a long airport wait and a short plane to Chapel Hill.

Even though the cruise was a little rocky at first, it was the best spring break I’ve ever had. What’s better than lots of food with lots of good friends on a big boat? πŸ™‚

Ok, back to business…next week I’ll be posting about some new healthy eats and a 5K program I am joining!
