Re: Why Children should go cruising

Just so this is searchable (and not in PM)...

Bimini is great. We spent two weeks in a slip at Bimini Sands marina and dinghied to North Bimini when we wanted to go over. By being in the south we were closer to some better snorkeling spots, plus there's a couple of cool nature hikes and the shark center (where they actually filmed some of Shark Week on Discovery). I don't know what's still around - things open and close in the Bahamas on a daily basis.

One of the neat things about Bimini Sands was that they had a kids program for employees but we snuck our kids into it. They were the only two (very) white kids in a group of Bahamanian kids with strong accents.. really kind of taught them what it was like to be different. They actually ended up becoming friends with a number of the kids who ended up hanging out on our boat.. until their parents (employees) told them not to (since we were guests there). Anyway... good experience (I think) for our kids.
