Our trip to the Bahamas

It's been a while since I've written a new post, but I'm really going to try to update more often.
My last post talked about my stay in the hospital for the relapse that started in December. I'm still not at 100% but I'm better. My hands and feet are still tingly but I'm able to use them a lot better. Because of the improvement, we were able to go on our trip to Sandals in the Bahamas that we had to postpone in February.
We flew to the Bahamas on April 14th. Our flight was at 5:10 in the morning, so we woke up at 3:00 am to be able to get the airport with time to spare. We had two stops before we arrived in Nassau - La Guardia and Charlotte. Both of our layovers were under 2 hours so we had enough time to get from gate to gate without too much stress. It was a long day but we arrived at the resort around 3:00 pm. Needless to say, I was exhausted. I was pretty much running on fumes. When we got to the resort, we were immediately handed a glass of champagne and brought to check-in. I was having trouble not spilling it (the glasses were the low & wide kind). What I did drink went straight to my head. Although my only interests at that point were food and sleep, I managed to make it to our room without falling apart. Jamie, my sweet husband, brought me to the room, got me settled, and then went to find food at one of the restaurants.

Fotunately, after a good night's sleep, I felt a lot better. And, when I say a good night's sleep, I mean 14 hrs worth. Jamie got up at 8:30 the next morning to go diving. He was really excited for diving every day. I woke up for a minute when he left, but then I slept until noon. I guess I needed it. Jamie returned from diving and we went to lunch. I was fully rested, but Jamie was pooped after his dive. So, he took a nap after lunch and I went out to lay by the pool. Of course, laying out by the pool means getting a drink from the poolside bar. Being from the Pasty White North, I was putting lots of 70 SPF sunscreen on so I wouldn't get burnt.

I think it's almost time to go to bed, so I'll update tomorrow, I promise.

We had an amazing time in the Bahamas. Jamie went diving with sharks, I swam with dolphins , we went on a booze cruise around Nassau Harbor. We met some wonderful people on the cruise -
Krystina & Sean and Emily & Eric . We are staying in touch afterwards which is cool.

We made reservations and ate in the different restaurants on the island. Bacarrat-,The Crystal Room-, Kimonos-. Great places to eat. The 7 days went by pretty quickly but we've already booked our vacation for next year. Jamaica in April. woo-hoo!
