Lynmarie & I got to go on an awesome vacation last weekend. We went on a 3 day Norweigan Cruise to the Bahamas and had a blast. It was so much fun just to see each other and get to hang out, but to get to go to the beach made it just that much better!

Here is our huge ship. This was taken on Sunday when we were hanging out on Great Stirrup Cay, the private island owned by the cruise line.
The trip was full of gorgeous beaches, water and clear blue skies! This was taken at Great Stirrup Cay. We took a hike to a lighthouse on the other side of the island. The lighthouse was disappointing, but there was a great view! Then we got to thinking that the boat may be leaving soon so we high tailed it back to the other side of the island. Luckily we were just in time to catch a boat back to the cruise ship.
Along the way we passed the Great Stirrup Cay International Airport. I'm pretty sure it hasn't been used in quite a while.

On Saturday we went on a shore excursion where we took a smaller boat to a reef. Along the way we passed the beach houses of Oprah, Nicholas Cage, and several others. Once we got to the reef we went snorkeling with these "sea scooters" which were basically a big fan that you hold on to and it takes you wherever you want to go underwater. It was really nice to have them since the waves were pretty huge. We saw some pretty amazing fish--yellow, blue, tiny & huge! Plus there were lots of coral and sea urchins--it was really neat!

The trip was so much fun. We had a great time on the boat getting pedicures, going to the comedy shows, drinking fruity drinks, going to the theme parties & just hanging out enjoying the wonderful weather! The whole cruising experience was really great and I would recommend it to anyone!
