{The Abacos, Bahamas Recap}

July 19, 2013

I’m pretty sure I’m the most terrible person at disconnecting from email/Facebook/Instagram/texting/etc. I checked my email every day on our trip (and what’s worse, I answered almost all of them!), checked Facebook to see all of the important stuff I was clearly missing back home, and posted a picture a day on Instagram.

While I wasn’t attached to some sort of social media/connection to the rest of the world, I did have the most amazing time with the Bailey family. We boated around from island to island all over the Abacos. (The Abacos are an island chain in the northern Bahamas)

We ate at some really fun places (Cracker P’s, Nippers, Sea Spray Marina, Harbor’s Edge, Firefly, the MOST amazing stone crabs from a little lady on Man-O-War Cay, among a handful of other little places), paddle-boarded, swam, snorkeled all over many beautiful reefs, went for walks around the island, met some friendly natives, and survived mini-tropical storms every night. No joke, the wind blew about 40 mph and the rain pounded our house. It was intense. 

Life moves at a slower pace (most shops, in town, close around 3pm every day), people are friendly, there’s no traffic, lots of great food, and a ton of outdoor stuff to do! The Abacos are a close getaway that absolutely makes you feel like your on the other side of the world!
