Why I Love the Bahamas....

Like I said in an earlier posts, we've been coming here for all of my adult life.
Almost every year for the past 34.
Sometimes twice a year.
So, we are sort of locals here.
We know just about everything about this fair island.
and we love it.
8 years ago 10 Bahamian conch divers rescued us from a sinking boat in the Abacos.
They truly saved our lives.
We are also pretty defensive about the natives.  We understand them.  We understand their culture.
We know how to interact.
So, when someone is mean to a local, we don't like it.
It makes me crazy to see people who think they can be as ugly as they want when they are on vacation....
just because they are paying money.
That is NOT how to get your way here in the Bahamas.
They do not like bullies.
They take things a little slower here.  They are on their own time.
You just have to adapt.
okay, now that I got that out of my system....
on to.
One of our very favorite restaurants.
A short taxi ride from Paradise Island is this little gem of a dive...

so yummy.

oh wait! Let me back up a bit....
The kids got to go feed the sharks and the stingrays yesterday.
 a fun little activity for these "sea squirts"
 even though they started out by looking at the HUGE sharks, they only got to feed this lil guy

 and then the stingrays

 Evey's decided she's a princess....oh wait, I think we knew that!
back to the Poop Deck!
 Greg and Ames finally made it here!!! We are now complete!!!

Welcome to my nutty family!!!

have a great day y'all!
