It Was More than a Vacation

8/02/2016 by Jessica L

It was memories that were made to last us a lifetime. It was warm sunshine on our faces. It was time for family. It was my birthday celebration. 
IMG_0056 From flying to Florida and then back home again to taking our first cruise (which was on the Carnival Fantasy) and our first trip to the Bahamas, our vacation was everything we could've ever asked for. IMG_0055 Some things I think will be forever etched in our memory are:
  • Our time on a plane. After all, we don't fly every single day!
  • How the people in the Bahamas have a neat accent.
  • How those in the Bahamas drive on the opposite side of the streets than what we do around here.
  • How they also sometimes drive on opposite sides of the vehicle.
  • How a taxi driver was driving side by side with another taxi driver and they were with their windows down and having a conversation while we were riding down the road.
  • Honking there doesn't mean road rage, they drive very close to other vehicles and they honk often.
  • Our Cruiseship Steward, Budi, gave me gift cards to use on the ship for my birthday.
  • The Bahamas was celebrating their Independence Day, and they even decorated the trees.
  • My birthday dinner on the evening of my birthday was on the deck of the ship.
  • The towels the cruise staff folded into designs for us and placed in our rooms.
  • The awesome food.
  • My turtle necklace my husband bought for me on the first cruise we shared together.
  • The kids and my husband went jet skiing and saw stingrays.
  • The Overlook we saw, called The Queen's Staircase.
  • The blue water.  It was so beautiful and so clear.
  • How the Bahamas didn't look anything like we expected it to. From where the ship docked, it was a small town filled with colorful buildings.
  • We stopped in Florida at a rest stop where there were alligators.
  • The time spent together, the laughter we had, the time that we shared.
