Catching up ...

Hi everyone, just a quick hello to say that there is a very good reason I've been MIA - we went to the Bahamas for two weeks and frankly I wish I was still there.  It was a wonderful holiday - the weather was perfect, the sea beautiful, the food delicious (although pricey), the people friendly and the service great.  We had nothing to do and all day to do it in :-)  We spent most of our time at the beach and then visited the island in the evenings. It was absolutely wonderful and very relaxing.  I have a few photos to share with you ,...

 
This was the view from our balcony. It was wonderful to wake up to this view every morning ... beautiful blue skies and an ocean breeze.

 
Look at the colour of this water - true turquoise. My son enjoyed a few hours of kayaking - saw a few manta rays and sea turtles as well as a bunch of different fish.

 
While there, we met a couple from Indianapolis and decided to go to the Pool Deck for dinner.  OMG, barring the restaurant in Spain, this had to be the best paella I've ever eaten.  I definately had more than an elegant sufficiency :) (as in I totally pigged out lol)

 
We took a day off and went to visit the Atlantis resort.  It was absolutely beautiful but very busy so I was glad we didn't actually stay there.  There are on average about 4 to 5 cruise ships there every day and most of the passengers go to the Atlantis resort. We visited their beautiful aquariums while there.

 
My son and hubby walking through the tunnel in the shark tank.  It's quite a feeling to see sharks everywhere including above your head!

 
As typical tourists we bought the T-shirts to prove we were there :)  This one sums it all up -
 Life in the Bahamas!
 
Well, now it's back to reality and I'm looking forward to making more cards and maybe some scrapbooking layouts and sharing those projects with you in the near future.
 
Thanks for stopping by and remember ...
 
Smile mon!!!
 
Hugs,
Lena
