“Do you think I could still find a beau?” asked our mommie & lady creator of a little engine that could with a laugh during our visit to what we term paradise – Nassau, Bahamas. ‘With that hair flowing, it’s a no brainer,” we responded.
Just look at the perfect blend in that do? We thought it highlights but au contraire! C’est au natural.
And with that vision of beauty that is our Mommie our brief Summer 2012 visit has fast come to a fast an end but as the saying goes – it’s truly better to have five minutes of wonderful than a whole hour of trifling.
OK; so we adjusted that slightly but y’all get the gist.
We give a whole big thanks to the Wayne & the folks at Bahama Divers for four awesome dives! The Sting Rays, giant Tortoise and Nurse Sharks while out on The Wall and The Blue Hole dives made for an exciting time down in the warm waters of The Bahamas! (Better video clip of dives coming up, b4 u guys start quipping about ‘where’s the turtle!)
Now, as if the above mentioned weren’t enuf to require us to get out a little blue pill (the ones that calm you, no the Jeremy Renner blue one) and make us mind out heart murmur some, we were joined by Tracie and Wayne – two of our real BFFs, not Paris Hilton BFFs – for din-din at Tracie’s house. Good times and good home cooked food! That’s icing. And dinner featured some kick-ass bread pudding for dessert – homemade!
Can’t beat that with a Sizzling Garden Kalik cocktail, we thinks. Nothing personal y’all.
Luv you guys. We will be back soon. Gotham here we come…
We shouldn’t need tell y’all of our love of going down. We’ll do it at the drop of a hat, zipper or, in this case, Stuart Cove’s boat, Cetacea, reaching our early morning dive site – Tunnel Wall, the 1st of 4 dives, on a warm sunny early morning during our multi-day Nassau, Bahamas holiday.
We had the luxury of descending down to 100 ft – how’s that for going deep - with a clear visibility almost to match, in calm warm Bahamian waters.
And if this wasn’t enough to soothe our reflexes, we were supervised by an all types of hotness looking instructor named David, hailing from VA, looking like a wet-dream out of a late 70′s adult flick, who kept all in check with mastered ease! (No joke y’all, brother spotted our dislexic blunder clear across the deck! We told you it was early…)
David made for welcomed stimulation for our otherwise dormant state and we were thankful for it! YUM.
Watching him manhandle a newly certified diver low on air, for their overzealousness, worked our imagination in all types of directions. Hell if we didn’t contemplate releasing our mouth piece for an impromptu distress rescue…
Not that swallowing something would’ve been totally unwelcomed & worthwhile given the opportunity of lookin up at his panty-dropping crystal blue eyes. (Don’t judge, we like chocolate as well!)
We saw ourselves starting at the calves and working our way up, with a long and deep pause somewhere in the middle, before heading North and sliding down… slow and deep! G-spot central.
And some lift & seperate action wouldn’t have been overlooked…
Our 2nd dive of the day brought us to the Will Lourie site and descended to a decent 55 ft – not as deep as we like it, but no complaints.
We liked our time with them so much that we returned for another day of going down, accompanied by our good buddy (& Bahama Divers instructor) Wayne and repeated our morning routine; this time stopping over at Edwin Williams & the South West Reef sites.
Wayne rocks at spotting & unearthing marine wildlife, sans disturbing their habitat, so we were syked to have him with us and getting to see more of the wildlife otherwise camouflaged to the untrained eye (like our own.)
But we could’ve done without seeing that big ass Reef Shark from the deck, Wayne!
Alas, we weren’t graced by David but we did have the opportunity of briefly revisiting with Monique – a charmer of a woman if there was ever one, so she lessened the blow of his absence immensely.
Vous est tres gentile! Merci.
And if you happen on asking yourselves ‘why not dive with Bahama Divers?’ (folks we frequent whenever we visit…) the answer would be that their side of the island was experiencing distressed waters due to storm fronts coming from the North. We blame Canada for this!
The Bahamian island known as Nassau is truly a slice of paradise. Calm clear waters, warm sun – even as its nearing freezing mark back home – historical, rich architecture, warm friendly folks, amazing fried chicken, incredible Scuba diving – courtesy of Bahama Divers - and truly awesome stretches of beaches.
And we have the awesome tan line to prove that last bit!
It is also a celebrity haven. Of note we learned that Javier Bardem and a very pregnant wifey Penelope Cruz were holding residence on the island looking very much in love and blissfully happy.
Of course between sunbathing and chasing after those two – we opted for the 1st one. Sue us.
But all good runs come to an end…
As we wrap our last day of a week long Thanksgiving day visit in the Carribean, let us give credit to a few folks we truly are thankful for having in our lives…
1st and foremost – Mommie, for taking time out of her hectic Dust Busters - the premiere detailing spot in Nassau – work schedule to put up with us. We luv you soooooooooooooo much! And miss you stateside even more – but we are still goin to continue nagging you for some of those brownies we grew up on!
We also wish to thank Wayne and his Bahama Divers’ bud for showing us some awesome down under time. We will never forget the experience of diving the Blue Hole & having a Nurse Shark swimming up towards our skinny ass. Wicked! It almost makes us forget surpassing our record depths – just almost.
And as we finds ourselves with Bahamians outright accusing our tanned ass of having soaked up all their sun and leaving them cloud ridden – we gear up our Tumi bags and head North with a broad smile on our sunkissed cheeks. (The ones above cuz the ones below are neon white – what can we say, we still like to have some contrast!)
We don’t mind telling y’all that we feel there is little else in life better than finding yourself on a desserted stretch of beach with no whinny ass white folk to deter one from worshipping the sun gods. And for this we are at peace.
So in closing, we hope you like these here few keepsakes from around New Providence – including: Jaws Beach (no, our asses didn’t go into the waters there!), local structures and the Cable Beach lot we grew most fond of – which came with its own shark sightings that caused us to nearly walk on water.
