Day 4 in the Bahamas : I’m not as young as I used to be

This morning our original plan was to go to the One and Only Resort (see Casino Royale for an example) to tour the resort and see their gardens. Unfortunately, it turns out that the resort isn’t exactly open to those who aren’t staying there. So Plan B was to head to Nassau and take a look at the downtown area and maybe grab lunch.  Now there are three ways to get to Nassau from Paradise Island (where Atlantis is located) without having your own ride; walk there (which would take forever), catch a ride there on a bus or taxi and, lastly, take a water taxi. So being the reasonable people we are, we of course took the trip on the water taxi.

Nassau was a fun town, it’s a pretty much a town setup for the cruise ships coming in with some high end shops, some shops more for tourist and the world famous Straw Market. We didnt hit the Straw Market, though that seemed to be the place to get an imitation Coach bag. When it came to lunch time we figured we could hit either the Hard Rock or Senor Frogs. Normally we would have gone to Hard Rock, but somehow we ended up at Senor Frogs (neither one of us can remember who suggested it or why).  We sat inside and then realized that a group of Spring Breakers from NC State had taken it over.  One hour, some chicken tacos, a quesadilla and two really really strong margaritas later, we walked/stumbled out and realized that the safest way for us to return to the hotel was via a taxi.

We wrapped up the afternoon grabbing some sun at the pools. I took a could of laps on the Lazy River and then decided to try one of the Intertube rides. This is where the title of the post comes (well that and surviving Senor Frogs). After climbing up four or five stories to get the top of the Power Tower, the ride down took about 10 seconds and possibly lead me to bruising a few body parts and swearing I wouldn’t go on it again.

For dinner we went to Nobu to get our fill of good sushi. The meal was excellent and we had a great relaxing time. By the end of the meal we were ready to crash for the night after a long exciting day.
