A Day In Bahamas, part 4

Shopping, eating, and a little exploring near the port was part of our day in the Bahamas. I have enjoyed myself completely during this time, which was definitely quite shocking to me. I had this misconception about Bahamas being too touristy for my liking. In fact I was bracing myself for a "letdown" of a day. Sure there is no question that the town or the area around the port is geared towards the day trippers/cruisers/tourists. Sometimes that is not all bad, especially in the shopping and eating department, because there are plenty of choices for each activity.

This guy sells fresh conch salad. Ask any local where to get the best conch salad, they would point him. We didn't get the salad from him :(.

We spent a good amount of time shopping or browsing. The vendors are pleasant and not pushy at all. When it was time to eat, we ask the vendors where they would go, we were pointed to this spot where many small shacks set shop by the beach. The bus goes there from the port, but it was taking too long and time was really important to us, so we took a taxi. Split 4 ways it was not bad.

I had a beautiful crab salad.

We did another visit to the grocery store before calling it a day in Nassau. Although we did not get on the boat right away, because we were busy photographing inside the port. The twilight cast a beautiful glow on Nassau.
