Today was an awesome day! We made port in Nassau in the morning and made our way to our cousin’s house for yet another Leesang family get-together. As you can see in the photos and videos, their backyard opens up to the water. It was warm and beautiful and great for wading, swimming 🏊, and kayaking. 🚣 Just wonderful. ☀️😎

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the Leesangs love to dance, and dance we did! 💃🎵 I’m not a good dancer by and stretch of the imagination, but there are some family members who are amazing dancers. But, talented or not, we all had a fantastic time.

The other thing my family loves to do is EAT! 🍴 The food at the Nassau party blew away the cruise food big time. Lobster, crab, fish, conch, curry, etc etc etc. And of course fresh Scotch Bonnet peppers 🔥 were always being passed around. This was easily my favorite meal of the vacation.

We also enjoyed fresh coconut water, and by fresh, I mean the coconuts were brought down from the backyard tree and cut open and handed out. 🌴 In the video below, the finished coconuts were being split in half to get at the jelly. You use a piece of chipped coconut to scrape it out and eat.

The party lasted until about 3:30, and then most of us had to head back to the ship 🚢 since the deadline was 4:30pm. I would have loved to stay longer at the Nassau house (say 3-4 more days 😝) but we had to go.

Back on the ship it was time to shower, relax with a cool beverage 🍹 and then meet up again for dinner… We were so full already, but we did our best to eat. 😧

The highlight of the evening for me was the comedy show at the ship’s theater. The comedian was hilarious and we all had a great time. After that is was casino and dancing once again. By the time I got back to my cabin, where a towel-elephant 🐘 awaited me, I was beat! I fell asleep immediately… 😴 Another wonderful day!
