McCann Travels: 24 Hours in The Bahamas with Kellene Young, Manager Internal Communications
The cold weather was getting to my husband, in particular the snow. Working for an airline, he has to manage flight delays, frozen planes and unhappy customers. He announced on Friday that he wanted to go to The Bahamas and by Saturday morning we were poolside. It is the greatest perks of working for an airline.
Similar to my last post, I contributed nothing to this trip other than agreeing to whatever my husband suggested. These were his suggestions:
“Let’s stay at the Baha Mar.” This was a beautiful resort with seven pools and white sand beaches, in which no one was sitting on because it was “cold.” Regardless, we found this to be ideal as we had the beach all to ourselves.
“I made reservations at Lukka Kairi.” We went here for dinner that was situated right in front of the harbor with delicious Bahamian food and live music. It was a 10 minute taxi ride from the resort and cost $22. I can’t quite remember what we ate because, well, daiquiris.
“Maybe we should have eaten at the Fish Fry.” Both taxi drivers to and from the resort mentioned that we should have eaten at the Fish Fry, which is a little neighborhood of 20 some restaurants in which I imagine sell fried fish. Noted for next time.
“Go jump off that cliff.” An actual statement made by someone I love. In which I complied. (Not as daring as it sounds… one of the pools had a cliff jump).
“This place has the best daiquiris.” A four-minute walk from the resort there is a tiny hut called The Daiquiri Shack that is listed on TripAdvisor under ‘Nightlife.’ We went at 1 p.m. and were the only people there, but based on the college T-shirts stapled to the wall next to the lost student I.Ds I could see how this tiny place would be considered ‘Nightlife’ during Spring Break. If we didn’t have a plane to catch, we would have stayed there for the rest of the day talking to the bartender who embodied the spirit of The Bahamas: all smiles because he lives in paradise.
