Vacation! FINALLY!


Barry and I FINALLY got to go on a vacation! We have
been together over three years now and this is our first official
REAL (not weekend/daytrip) vacation.

My mother was married, in the port of Galveston, on Jan 2nd
and then we all went on the honeymoon cruise! lol


This is our first "at port" day - Nassau, Bahamas.






This is me and Barry in front of the Atlantis resort that I had planned
on being our honeymoon destination but we were traveling with Steve,
who is a travel agent, and he was telling me (as a friend) that
Atlantis is awesome but not all inclusive. So, if you are willing to
pay a ton of money for the room and then pay a ton of money
for food, etc. then Atlantis is fantastic for you.

This is the Queen's Staircase.

Hands down, the most beautiful, awe-inspiring thing
I have seen in a long time.

It was carved out of limestone, by slaves between 1793-1794.
It was made as an escape route in case of pirates, etc.
The route was never used and finally Queen Victoria ended slavery.
The staircase is named for her.



BEACH!!!!!



This is the beach right next to the Atlantis resort. It was just gorgeous.
Unfortunately, the waves were HUGE! :)

I had a lot of fun but if you were caught in the waves you
ended up being pushed UP the shoreline and then
immediately SUCKED back into the ocean. Grown men
would fall and then all of a sudden all of a sudden you
would just see surf and feet. Hilarious, until it happened
to you.
