Nassau finally

Tuesday we finally got to Nassau. (btw, I'll post a link to pictures once we have them ready)

I love Nassau! I love the straw market, I love Atlantis, I love the beaches. First we went shopping since they close a little earlier. I take that back, first we saw a Starbucks (they have 6 there now) and then went shopping. We got 2 Rolexes, a Breitling watch, a Dolce and Gabanna purse and a pair of Dolce and Gabanna sunglasses. I still have my Rolex from when we went in 2005 and yes, it still works great. I was thrilled with my purchases. I would have gotten more purses but seriously, I don't use mine often enough to keep buying more and more.

We were then going to go on the submarine excursion we'd booked. It goes underwater so you can see the reefs and fish crystal clear but guess what...the submarine had mechanical difficulties and we had to get a refund on our deposit. Last time we were going on the glass bottom boats they had bad weather so we missed out again. Instead we took a taxi tour of the island all by ourselves. We got a great deal too because most charged $20 per person IF you could get 12-14 people. If we went alone it was $60. This guy offered us a two hour tour alone for just $50 total.

We went by this Sheik's house that is like 2 blocks long, a few more celebrity houses, Atlantis, the beaches, markets, the Queen's Staircase, etc. He was super nice and gave a great tour and we didn't have to share it with anyone.

We did a little more shopping, getting some t-shirts and stuff and then used their WiFi hot spot to check e-mail. Got back on the boat since main street closes after dark anyway. I forgot that on the timeshare thing the first day we also got free lunch which was an authentic Bahamian lunch of grilled chicken, slaw and rice. I'm not a huge fan of Bahamian food but it was good. I've had the conch too and it tastes like oysters to me. More to come later. :)
