Traveling to The Bahamas

One summer, I traveled to The Bahamas. I went with family and had a great time. That was around 15 years ago. Because it was so long ago I don’t remember much. It was before iPhones! Because of that, I don’t believe there is any video footage of my trip. Surely, we could have carried along an old-school camcorder, which was akin to a large and heavy brick-like object. But I’m sure my mom wouldn’t want to risk any possible damage to it on the beach where water could destroy it.

I do remember riding a wave runner on the water along the coast. There were men on the beach who would rent their wave runners for a great price for, I believe, an hour a ride. Although I was a minor at the time, I was able to take one out. I never fell off! This surprised me even though there were small waves. I suppose I was a little bit extra careful since that was my first time riding one. Now that I think of it, I believe that was the only time I’ve ever been on a wave runner. I’m not sure if I prefer those or snowmobiles!

Because it was summer, the weather was perfect. Palm trees, warm sand, and blue skies were all I would see for miles. It was paradise! The Bahamas, Hawaii, and Seychelles all have that visual setting.

We did not get to The Bahamas via airplane. A cruise ship from Florida had taken us there. It was a Disney cruise. On the same trip, we were able to visit another island, which was owned by Disney. I’m sure most people don’t know that Disney owns an island! I wonder if they own more. Visiting The Bahamas was a wonderful experience for me and I hope to return one day.
