Ports of Call

This was a four day Carnival Cruise to Freeport and Nassau, Bahamas.
Freeport was really dull.
Because it isn't huge, the closest public beach is about 25 minutes away from the port.
Putting eight people in a taxi for 25 minutes is expensive so we got off, took pictures and got right back on board. I really don't think we missed anything.
Nassau was a totally different story.
We were able to go to the beach right outside the Atlantis hotel.
And let me tell you, it was beautiful.
Hot, but beautiful.
It was Georgia Kate's first trip to the beach and despite what the pictures say, she really enjoyed it.
The contrast between the blistering sand and the cool water has me making a lovely face, but Georgia Kate is loving it.
Tip~ When you want someone to take a picture of you and your daughter on their first beach trip be sure to specify zooming in as an option... Otherwise you will wonder who the people in all of your pictures are :)

This had to be one of my favorite views :)
The ceiling at one of the Atlantis hotel restaurants
And part of their aquarium...
The sun made us all a little crazy
I love this picture!
I made her little dress!
(Robert Kaufman's Sugar and Spice!)
She loved the little fish, but ran when this one got close!
Caleb really surprised me.
Normally he is afraid of getting his head wet.
The beach made him forget.
He would fall into the water and jump right back up and keep going like it never happened.
He has learned to cheesy smile so getting a decent picture is near impossible.
He had us all looking for shells so he could hide them again.
Georgia Kate slept through most of her first beach experience so I have very few pictures of her. :(
We knew he had a blast when he fell asleep while eating.
