We are home! Home sweet home. I’m writing this from a pool chair next to our neighborhood pool, while Trey sits beside me working on his own projects. We have one, last, full off-day today before it is back to the real world, so we are planning to soak up every minute of this down time.
So, about that cruise…
Our bedroom had a window and I got so much joy out of looking out, day or night and seeing the ocean down below.
The further south we went, the bluer the water got. Everyone always says that the water is “so blue and crystal clear!”, but seeing is believing and I never imagined that it could be Blue Raspberry Kool-Aid blue. I was stunned. Most mornings started with Trey ordering room service (which is always one of my favorite things), and the days were spent reading and drinking beer or frilly umbrella drinks on the decks or by the pool. At night, we would step into the lounges and listen to music or play cards while people-watching. Oh, and we ate CONSTANTLY. 24 hour pizza and ice cream. You could go get chinese food, and a hamburger, and three slices of roast lamb, cheesecake, and an ice cream cone and no one would think twice. So much gluttony, but… 24 hours of prosciutto pizza is heaven and I didn’t care to miss out on that.
The bluest water off the coast of Freeport. Kool-Aid Blue.
The trip was a major success. We are relaxed and refreshed. We experienced the island pleasures of the Bahamas, ate everything in sight, found that those coconut drinks you see are a lot heavier to carry than one would think, and we are so excited for whatever our next vacation may be.
