Our trip to the Bahamas - Pic heavy

We just got back from a two month cruise through the Bahamas. We left on March 24th and directly from Marathon, FL to South Bimini. The entire trip was spectacular. I wanted to keep going south, but we had to come back to find some work and build the kitty back up.

Here are the places that we visited:
North and South Bimini
Great Harbor, Berry Islands
Soldier Cay, Berry Islands
Hoffman Cay, Berry Islands
Little Harbor, Berry Islands
Nassau
Allens Cay, Exumas
Normans Cay, Exumas
Shroud Cay, Exumas
Warderick Wells Cay, Exumas
Big Majors and Staniel Cay, Exumas
Cave Cay, Exumas
Georgetown and Great Exuma Island

I'll do a small series of posts for the pics.

In this post,

Love Bimini, use to go there regularly. The people are great and the laid back atmosphere is the best. Was sorry to see the Complete Angler burn down.

Thanks for the nice pics, brings back fond memory's.

We ended up spending extra time in Nassau. We put the boat into a marina and flew to Ohio due to a death in the family.

After Nassau, we headed out over to the Exumas.
