Some Last Things About The Bahamas . . .

. . . and then it will be over, I promise.
But there are a couple more things that struck me about our resort.

I guess they figure they have a captive audience. And they do a pretty good business there.

Where's the sunrise shot? Or at least a sunset! Work that camera early and late. Have a happy, long weekend. We're off to a Williamsburg water park/kiddie paradise with the grandkids.
