Bahamas - The TOUR

Last night, before today's tour LOL, we hopped aboard a boat, that took us to Stingray Island (I think) for dinner. The seas and boat rocked, just a bit. bwahaha!! The food was awesome. Found that calamari is good.
ARRGGGHHH matey. So the tour, we blew through Fish Fry town mainly because it wasn't open yet and had I KNOWN we wouldn't be back, I'd have taken pix through the window. So this is the Atlantis Hotel.
Marlin on the rooftop, seahorses and shells below.
I believe this winged horses are The FURIES, but I'm not sure. They're very cool and some do look a tad mad.
I played with the saturation on this. I LOVE the saturation button.
Christopher Columbus landed in the Bahamas and its believed there he made the wrong turn to disover America.
Fort Charlotte was fun. Named for a Queen. And its 4 forts combined. Really so glad I didn't live in the 1700's. Twas a harsh time.
The guns were on wheels, and I'm still trying to figure out how many men were needed to turn it.
And a lighthouse, gasp! And yes I have a bazillion shots.
Here we are in the town that has a ton of fancy smancy shops. I just love the fun colors.
Did you know pink was the national color "sortof." In the early days, the folks would take the conch shells and smash them to bits zeroing in on the PINK of the shell and then applying it to their buildings.
