Bahamas: Part 1

Over the next few days I'm going to recap our cruise to The Bahamas.
We left last Sunday for 4 nights in paradise.
Those 4 days flew by!
I loved every minute I was with my main squeeze & spending time with his friends from Texas.
I don't have many pictures from the first day which consisted of waking up early to head to the boat from Daytona Beach. When we made it to our room I was so excited to drop my carry on bags and head to the top of the ship when Josh excitedly said "oh babe hey look whats this".... he ordered a chocolate covered platter of strawberries, macaroons and a sweet note!
He even started the note off with "Life Is Sweet"
which makes perfect sense since every day with him has been sweet!
I won't mention that once we were out to sea we hit the casino and won $500 on the Wheel Of Fortune slot machine and lost that by the end of the cruise!
The second day we woke up in Freeport, Bahama
& with the photographer I am I wanted a picture in front of this sign.
Notice the 4 people standing in next to us. They saw us walk over to this sign and insisted on walking right in front of us to stand like the hated the world & the lady with her head on her knees... she must've had a really bad hangover or was sea sick. Who knows but this picture cracks me up!
We took a tour to the Bahamian Brewery which also had a few stops in between.
Back in 2004, Freeport was hit bad by two hurricanes and the "place to be" which was the International Bazaar only had a few shops still opened.
We also stopped at the Perfume Factory which was a cute little pink house and took a tour to see how they make it.
Then we finally made it to the Brewery. I'll just say it was so hot in there & during the summer months its even hotter.
I'm not a huge beer fan but I was there to support Josh! He enjoys this kind of thing.

  We sampled 6 different Bahamian beers and then was handed a bigger cup to continue drinking until we got back to the ship.
{this is the group we went with}
We had a blast together!
Yes it was only 12:09 when we left the brewery!
Who cares we were on vacation!
We stopped at a must have shack to try the conch salad and conch fritters.
Apparently the conch fritters were delicious but I wouldn't know. Josh put an entire fritter straight from the fryer into his mouth and needed a drink STAT! So while I was buying $7 cokes he finished off the fritters.
If you've ever see to Senor Frog's you'll know that thy make you get on the bar to dance & take shots.
All the guys in the group jumped on the bar & had a dance competition. Funniest thing I saw the entire time.
Josh refuses to dance but for some reason being in another country brings the best out in him! We have video and I hope to post that video one day!

We ended our first night with the Captain's Dinner but we changed out of our dress up clothes before watching the sunset!
Being with Josh has been amazing & to be able to experience paradise together was just perfect.
I can't wait until we plan our next getaway!
