Just a Cruisin'...

This past week, Greg & I joined his brother, Geoff, and his girlfriend, Laura, on a 7 night cruise of the caribbean. We started the week with two days at sea which included lots of sunshine, a few "boat drinks" and some luck (and some non-luck) in the casino.

Bon Yoyage!!

Our first port of call was Nassau, The Bahamas. I had been back in '99, but a lot had changed, so I was excited to go back. We enjoyed a full day at the beautiful Atlantis resort, taking advantage of their beautiful beaches, water park and aquarium. We loved hanging out there and Greg & I would consider a trip back there in a heartbeat!

Welcome to the Bahamas!

The next day, we arrived on Grand Bahamian island. We really didn't have any excursions planned so after being directed to a less than desirable beach, we spent the afternoon enjoying some yummy Bahamian beers and the fresh ocean air.

On Friday, we arrived in Key West, Florida where little did Laura know, Geoff had a surprise in store for her birthday! We started the day off at the best little dive for breakfast and then jumped on Famous Conch Train tour for a quick tour of the city.

Geoff popped the question and Laura said yes! Greg & I are so excited to be getting a little sister!!

We finished the day celebrating at a few famous bars; Captain Tony's, Margaritaville, and Sloppy Joes's (Hemingway's favorite hangout).

We had such a wonderful time on the cruise and celebrating with Geoff and Laura. Now we are looking forward to their wedding and all the festivities that go along!
