We woke up bright and early on our second day in the Bahamas. After breakfast it was time to explore. Out the front of the resort and down to the bus stop. Buses pass by often and the fair is a small amount. We rode into town and walked to The Pirates of Nassau Museum. The entry fee is $12 per adult and it is a self guided tour.
When you walk in there is a town front and a Pirate Ship set up. It is supposed to look like the ship is in harbor. When you walk inside the ship it is set up like it would have been when the crew was aboard. As you walk along there a signs describing life on the sea. It was very interesting to see how the crew lived. On long voyages they kept chicken, goats, and even cows on board to eat. Due to the limited space the men and animals slept in the same area as the animals. At the end of the tour there were artifacts in cases to see. It was well worth the twelve dollars per person.
Everything is bright a cheery in the Bahamas. The buildings are well maintained and all look like they have a fresh coat of paint on them. We walked down the street toward the dock. There were small restaurants tucked into alley’s along the way. We stopped in at one to have a quick drink and then be on our way. From the Prince George Dock we took a ferry over to Paradise Island. The ferry ride was about $6 per person and lasted about fifteen minutes. Once we got to Paradise Island it was a few blocks to walk to get to the Atlantis Resort.
The Atlantis Resort is Huge. It feels like a city instead of a resort. As we walked in there were yachts in the harbor. One had a small car parked on it. I have never seen anything like it before. Since we were visitors and not guests we were limited on where we could go. We stopped in the casino and played a few games on the slots machines. There is an enormous aquarium with all kinds of fish in it. Some small and some not so small. We would like to have explored more but had to catch the ferry back.
Once back on the dock I spotted a Senor Frogs. This required another drink and some appetizers. There seems to be no lack of Bahama Mama’s in the Bahamas. On the bus ride back to the resort we saw a row of restaurants and decided to put them on the to do list for the next day.
When we got back to the Breezes Resort it was time to get ready for dinner. We had reservations at Garden Of Eden. It is a private restaurant with booth seating for two. The way it is set up you feel like you are the only couple in the restaurant. Very Romantic.
