Better in the Bahamas

I'm sitting on the deck of the Norwegian Sky, shaded from the bright tropical sun. The first photo is the view of Miami harbor as the ship pulled out last night. It was drizzling, but there was still a beautiful flash of sun in the distance. The second photo is the view as the Sky pulled into the harbor in Nassau, Bahamas.

The jingle "It's better in the Bahamas" floats through my mind. I can't say that it's better in the Bahamas yet. I haven't left the ship. But the air is warm and the breeze is delightful. I've got a quiet table to sit at and drink my coffee, write a blog post and be grateful for friends, sunshine and the day past and the day ahead. I can't ask for more.

Wishes for a day with of sun, friends and quiet moments.

I was on the Sky's maiden Miami voyage in Nov. 1999. We spent the trip dodging Hurricane Lenny. Had great views of Cuba and got to Jamaica and Nassau, neither of which were on the original itinerary. I hope you have better luck.
