We're back from vacation! We enjoyed a four day Disney cruise in the Bahamas. We visited Nassau and Castaway Cay. This is a picture from the island in Nassau where we participated in a stingray adventure. We got to snorkel with, pet and feed the stingrays. Nature Girl was not a fan of the salt water as it tasted bad and hurt her eyes. I was not a huge fan of the stingrays. They felt a little slimy. I would compare them to mushrooms, harmless but a weird texture. The fish we feed them were smelly and gross. They flocked around the feet of Nature Girl and I when they realized we had food. They almost knocked us over and I had to hop on one foot to avoid stepping on and possibly injuring them. It was definitely a different experience.
We enjoyed the water and the beach. It was hot and humid but very enjoyable. Nature Girl bought a big conch shell and has been practicing blowing into it. She's getting better at it.
One thing that amazed me was the color of the water. I think you hear everyone say that but it's true. It's so much more blue! If you are looking for a fun family vacation I would suggest a Disney Cruise. The food was great, the shows and movies were fabulous and we enjoyed ourselves!
