While I can still say it...

Greetings from the Bahamas!

I'm typing this from an outdoor bar on Grand Bahama Island. femetal is on my right, joreth is on my left, and the Caribbean is in view behind me. It's a bright tropical day, but under the shade the cool breeze is downright pleasant. (I do wish I was naked, though.) I'm trying not to think about the fact that I'll be at work in less than 24 hours.

I'll make this short, but we've been here since Friday evening. We took a very nice boat ride from Ft. Lauderdale, and in a couple of hours will be getting back on that same boat (the Discovery Sun) for the first leg of our trip home. The weekend started off slow and a bit frustrating, but the last two days have been great, with snorkeling and the beach being the high points. I can now also say that I've had sex in the Caribbean Sea, which pleases me more than it probably ought to.

All in all the tropics aren't quite for me, but I've had a good time and it's absolutely beautiful here! I do love the water, though, and I'm looking forward to the trip back to the States.

Oh, one sour note: If you're ever at Port Lucaya on Grand Bahama Island, avoid The After Deck restaurant like the plague. The bus boy blatantly tried to steal ten bucks from me, and our waitress (possibly unwittingly) tried to help him. He didn't succeed, but it required making a scene.

Okay, gotta run. We have a boat to catch!

Hope you made that boat! The water is indeed extremely beautiful. So is the snorkeling, as you know. Did you encounter a houndfish?

BTW, the Bahamas are in the Atlantic, not the Caribbean Sea. Gotta get yourself down south of the Cuban border to say you had sex in the Caribbean. BTW, cruises are a wonderful way to experience the Caribbean Sea!

I didn't see a houndfish, but I did see a barracuda up close, and even followed it trying to get video. And yeah, the water was absolutely stunning. Snorkeling was the high point of the trip for me.

As far as where we had sex, I'll grant that the point is arguable, and even Wikipedia disagrees with itself on the matter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_islands_in_the_Caribbean

However, the Bahamas is a full member of CARICOM and there seem to be an equal number of sources on each side, so I think you're trifling over semantics.
