The news out of Halifax is just heartbreaking. A Syrian family came to Canada in 2017, searching for peace and safety, but … Keep Reading
The local SPCA is going to help find the dog’s owners if they come forward and try to get the dog home. I found their web site last night and wrote them. We didn’t see the dog anywhere yesterday or today so hopefully she found her way back.
We went into Nassau yesterday morning to walk around. The day was gorgeous! Visited the Queen’s Staircase , the waterfront, main street, and did a little shopping but didn’t buy anything (not into souvenirs). I was surprised to see so many closed shops along the main drag.
While we were out walking four cruise ships came into the port. Tourism is definitely the biggest money maker here.
Had a few drinks at Senor Frogs and cabbed it back to the hotel.
This morning we headed out to the beach for a swim. My GoPro flooded >:| so it looks like I’ll need a new one. Saw a stingray and found some nice seashells for Rehtaeh while snorkelling.
Today was a very relaxing day. So much so we ordered a pizza to our room and spent most of the time sitting on the balcony reading. Perfect!
We arrived in Nassau safe and sound yesterday afternoon. Our original flight left Halifax at 7:00 but we managed, thanks to a very nice WestJet employee, to change out flight to an earlier one. That gave us time in Toronto for breakfast.
The flight down took just under three hours. Nice and quick. We’re staying at the Meliá Nassau Beach Hotel. So far it’s been a great place full of friendly people.
Today we headed downtown and took in the Junkanoo festival. For Junkanoo people dress up and have a huge street parade. It’s a Bahamian christmas celebration. When we arrived in town we just stood and watched it pass us by. Lots of very happy festive people.
When we headed back to the hotel we decided to walk. It took about two hours and the whole way this little dog followed us. We reported it to the hotel and we’re hoping they called animal services. They said it had a collar so the owner shouldn’t be hard to locate.
