“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…
Nassau, Bahamas is a hotspot for jetsetters from around the globe. Sir Sean Connery is a permanent resident, Johnny Depp has his boat docked there, Shakira owns real estate and frequents the island and Javier Bardem visits with wife Penelope Cruz. It also happens on being the final resting place for pop-icon Anna Nicole Smith and her son Daniel Wayne Smith. A sad ending to a troubled existence, one which, we feel, has left a void in present day pop-culture.
And no, we don’t think Britney’s anst are of merit! That troll may be an unwielding weed but she ain’t no Anna Nicole!
Truth is Anna brought a-whole-nother level of crazy when she popped up. Inciting near riots with fans and paps alike. Never mind that paps would step over themselves for a shot at a turtle crawl if it were to be deemed news - with Anna, it became like she was a cold drink of water to a desserted man!
On the tail end of the Huffington Post reporting on The Today Show’s Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter DanielLynn tribute - originally airing earlier in the year – to fill air time during a slow news day no doubt – we were forced to think of the controversial beauty and how it all came to end so disastrously.
It was also eery that we had just visited her grave during our Bahamas holiday.
We prefer to think on Anna Nicole as the stunner that she was and chose to leave her daughter alone. That little one has had enough drama. We would petition that The Today Show and HuffPo & the rest of em do the same & let that child just be. May she rest in peace.
At times, when you are deep in the arduous task of baking yourself like a turkey, your movement is limited – les you disturb the duties at hand, (which in this case would entail sunning your backside,) and end up with streaks of shaded areas. So in search of something to do requiring limited mobility, during a five hour tan session, your vision narrows in on minute activity – like a small crab dutifully burrowing his hole.
Don’t you go and judge us! Tanning is serious business, and the aforementioned activity is fascinating, dammit.
This small crab kept us company and we marveled at how committed to his task he was the entire day.
We also marveled at how quick this little sucker was when some unwanted tourist came within proximity to his territory. One second he was there & the next he was gone!
As we gear up for one harsh ass winter – you know its coming – we thought to top off our fading tan with a little itty-bitty run down to The Bahamas – Nassau to be precise – and, while at it, get a visit with some of our dearest friends and extended family folk.
Should you be inclined and in the vicinity why not stop by and say hello. We will be over at Cable Beach – just look for our finns anchored in the sand.
Et voila! C’est tout…
We wish you all the merriest of family fueled festivities on this annual day of binge eatting.
We will be back on the celebrity grind soon enough.
Until then, gobble gobble.
As we try to weather this arctic blast our minds regress to warmer happier times. We can’t help it. We know its deep denial, but we are fine with that! The first place we stop at is this here vacant beach we took refuge while visiting Nassau just a few months ago.
What can we tell y’all… Our memory needs a new prescription.
We recall not having to endure sub-zero winds, nor having to listen to folks clamber on their cell phones chit-chatting about nothing – just wasting their minutes. Nor did we have to take a deep breath before dipping our hands into the water to wash off the sand.
It’s the simple things really.
We are on a respid from our fabulous celebrity coverage – out making $, but it doesn’t mean we aren’t thinking of you and thought to share this fond memory in the hopes it warms you up as it does us.
We’ll be back to the same ole soon.
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.
