A Day in Bahamas, part 3

Still traveling by motor boat to the mysterious island that the tour operator said had no name, we passed by many fine looking resorts. I was secretly hoping that our boat ride will last longer. I was having so much fun just being in the moment. The combination of cobalt sky and sea was mesmerizing and I was reluctant to let go of the tranquility I was experiencing in favor of snorkeling.

We arrived at a small island that was primitive, but charming. It was a perfect spot for day trippers.

Despite the resplendent day with blue skies, the water was cold! Bahamas water, cold? Huh? Yeah it was. The first batch of people who went snorkeling were shivering and reported back that the snorkeling was not good that day. Too many people jet-skiing nearby which disturbed the waters. I have not snorkeled before so I really don't know what made for a perfect conditions for snorkeling. This would be the second time I signed up for snorkeling. The first time it was too windy and the wave was too rough and this time the water was too cold. Oh it was not meant to be.

Since we already paid for the activity, we decided to switch it to parasailing. We have done it once before but our companions have not so we all went for it. There were 3 pairs that took turns; we went first and so we were able to shoot afterwards. Besides, when the next two pairs went up, the rain started to come down. In fact the last pair went up for a shorter time because the rain was getting heavy.

  10. I think you did well to opt for the parasailing. Personally, I like the unimproved primitive island over the resorts.
