REWIND: Summer Vacation 2009

Ok, I suck at blogging. For real. And I always have to go months back in time.

I wanted to be good blogger and post all these pics the moment I got home. But then there was facebook and I thought what the hey, most people have already seen them there. Then I thought you know what I HATE? uploading pictures to blogger. So then I contemplated a Word Press blog. But ya'll have you tried that? It is way more complicated than blogger and as much as I love to mess with stuff on the computer, I have since given up at least 3 times to figure it out. HOWEVER, I did find it to be much easier to upload pictures. But everything else seems more complicated. I think what I need is my own domain name and downloading the full version to make all their features work well and the free one maybe just doesn't have all the spunk I want. But I am totally digressing here... the point is that at SOME point I may change to wordpress so I don't go months on end not posting anything because it is just frustrating and makes me want to be lazy.

So anywho, I am at home sick today, so thought it would a good time to re-live our fabulous cruise. So here ya go!

So vacation was good. Soooooo. sooooo. SooooooooooOOOOOOO. good.

I give you the port of Miami:

Look back at all the condos.

Pretty sailboats.

There was a complete rainbow when we left!!!

Had to have the right drink while we were leaving!

Nassau, Bahamas:
In the morning we walked around Nassau and saw their pink government buildings, their library (no A/C! just open windows) and their court buildings. It was very HOT. We also went to their national art gallery (hey they had air conditioning!) and a fort. And the Queens Staircase.

Finally a break, cooling off.

Queens Staircase

Then we went back to the boat to eat lunch on board. And then we took a cab to Paradise Island and went to B

We took a cab and were let out at a public beach. There were tons of people but if you walked down there was no one! It didn't say private beach so we kept going. The water was awesome. Like a swimming pool!! We walked all the way to the point you can see in the pic above.

When we got down to the point it was amazing. Too bad we didn't have snorkel gear!

Looking back at the Atlantis Resort.

I give you Cococay, Bahamas:You'll have to excuse me... I was in love with the coconut trees!!

I just couldn't stop taking pictures of them!
(and also have no idea how I turned underline on or how to turn it off, haha!!)

I enjoyed this uncrowded beach immensly. It was just right around the corner from everyone else all squished in this one place. I didn't understand it. Other than I guess the bar was really far from this spot.... or I guess people just didn't want to walk that far? just like on Cabbage Beach? no idea! it was beautiful and I was so happy I pretty much had it to myself.

And then the wonderful Key West:
Aaaah yeah, my husband was not going to wait in line to take a picture with this so we just kept moving. We ended up renting bikes to ride around the island. I loved riding the bikes!! might be my favorite part of the whole trip.

Key West beach is not as impressive when you have seen the Bahamas already. But it was still better than Texas!!

I like mine with lettuce and tomato, somethin somethin, and french fried potatoes. Cheese burger in paradise ah ah ahhhhh.

and of course had to have Key Lime Pie

And don't forget South Beach (where apparently I also video'd a necked ladeh... hey I just thought my husband was giving me the regular wierd look!! haha!)

It was a really hazy day on Miami Beach and we were tired. So not the greatest pics from that experience.

I just thought this was funny... for some reason. Saving lives is not really funny but I kinda wanted to see it happen.

Versace mansion

And we would go back in a heart beat. Husband is already scouting a cruise out of San Juan.
