Spicyland in Nassau

Good morning in Nassau!

DT and I visited Nassau on our first cruise in 2009.  We tried a snorkeling excursion on a catamaran, but the weather was cold, windy, and rainy that day – basically we just drank a lot of rum punch. 😉  The return visit was a lot more pleasant.

Junkanoo Beach was a quick, easy walk from the port, maybe 15 minutes.  It’s public and free, but no riffraff.  A couple of little stands had fruity refreshments available, otherwise the area was very low key.

The ship left relatively early that afternoon, so we were off the beach by 1:00 and did some walking through town.

Tuesday was a day at sea – we spent the day reading, napping (me), and playing games, namely Yahtzee and Farkle.  That night was the formal dinner and lobster tails were served.  I made the executive decision that we’d get a little dressed up and go down to the dining room so DT could get some lobster, darn it!

We were in the casino bar for the rest of the evening, playing trivia and dancing.
