Cruise to the Bahamas!!!

We're back, and we made it home in one piece, thank God! The girls were good too (no problems or injuries) except for not wanting to sleep at night. They must have missed their own beds because as soon as Wayne and I got home, they slept fine. My poor parents! I thought I would post some pictures of our well-needed time away...enjoy!
We cruised on the Carnival Fascination out of Jacksonville, FL to Freeport and Nassau in the Bahamas. The ship is Carnival's Hollywood themed funship and was very pretty.
In Freeport, Wayne and I took a jeep tour of the island. We were able to see dolphins, residential areas, Lacaya Canal, Ben's Cave, Garden of the Groves (which was absolutely beautiful), and Lacaya Beach. We even did some off-roading in the national forest! We stopped for a delicious lunch at Garden of the Groves and spent a good bit of time exploring there.

In Nassau, we headed to Blackbeard's Beach for some time in the sun and snorkling. We took a boat over to the beach, snorkled, layed out, ate lunch, and then returned to Nassau where we got a taxi and headed over to the Atlantis Resort. The resort was amazing and is definitely the place to stay if you plan on taking a trip to an all-inclusive resort in the Bahamas!

This was the beach in Freeport. We walked along looking for sea shells to bring home to the girls, but it was a bit overcast that day, and the water was way too cold for us to get in. Other people with us swam, but we weren't that brave! :)

This picture was taken at dinner on formal night. We were fortunate to be able to eat dinner each night with four other wonderful couples from North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Indiana.
