After a relaxing start to our honeymoon we were ready to get off the resort and see what the Bahamas was really about! On Thursday, we asked our butler how to get to the downtown market (that other guests were recommending to us) and she said take the public bus!
The Bahamas is so safe and geared towards tourists that their own public transportation is easily accessible. So, for $1 each you can go anywhere you want on the island!
We got to the market to search for the only souvenir we wanted to purchase, a Christmas ornament. Luckily, even in May, we were able to find one that we both liked!
We decided to head to Senor Frogs for lunch. I had heard some fun things about this place and knew Ryan would love it! We were immediately greeted with new hats and yard tall drinks! Yum!
The drinks have a great warning on them too!
After our delicious lunch the party really got started! The music was louder, there was dancing on chairs and a long conga line!
I love this next picture. The random dude taking a shot from a clown with a butt right over his head…at the time (and after a few yard drinks) this seemed completely normal!
We headed back to the hotel later that afternoon for a nap (aka second wind) before heading to supper at The Cricketers Pub. After a few days of fancy dining we were looking forward to some beer, fries and chicken wings! So yummy!
Friday day more laying around the pool, reading and playing cards followed! It was glorious!
Traditional honeymoon shot! :-)
That evening we got dressed up to head to the French cuisine restaurant, Baracat.
Saturday we were starting to feel like our honeymoon was coming to a close. Ryan decided he to wanted to REALLY tan but instead that day he REALLY burnt!
That evening we went to the Casanova for the Italian buffet!
Sunday, our last official honeymoon day! The day was beautiful but we were done sitting around in the sun! We decided to hop back on the public bus and head to the Atlantis Resort and look at the marina!
This place is HUGE! And so hard to find your way around! Finally, we got tickets and started our tour of all the aquatic life! We even got to go in the shark tunnel! SO COOL!
We were done at the Atlantis and decided to check out the Pirates Museum that was near the market downtown!
We had fun running around the museum learning about the pirates that had visited the Bahamas and the way they use to live! There were also some really neat old pirate artifacts!
We were pretty spent after our adventurous day and decided to lay low for lunch at our FAVORITE place at our resort, the pizza place!
This place was so awesome and the pizza was amazing. Fresh and made it order in a fire burning stove! Yum!
We relaxed and laid around for the rest of the afternoon and started packing! That evening we just went back to The Cricketers pub for a small meal. Later, we headed back to the beach for one last Bahamas sunset!
Monday morning it was time to pack up our room! I couldn’t help but take a picture of my friend Sara’s birthday card that I forgot to give to her at the wedding that made it all the way to the Bahamas!
We got home safe and sound after an amazing honeymoon! It was so fun going away as husband and wife!
We got to relax, reflect on our wedding and talk about all the things to come in our married life! Great way to start our lives out together!
