I only spent a day in the Bahamas–the curse of the cruise ship vacation–but it was exactly the burst of Caribbean sunshine that I needed after a few chilly months in New York City.
Seriously, the water was THAT clear. And the sky was WAS that blue. The few brief hours we spent dipping our toes in the sea and wandering around the port-area tourist shops of Nassau reminded me why I’m not a fan of cruise ships: I like to be able to lounge in the sand for long after the cruise ships depart. Even so, it wasn’t a bad introduction to the Bahamas.
