We spent the morning relaxing at Cocoa Cay. We found a couple of lounge chairs on the beach in the shade and were able to enjoy a peaceful nap. We were awakened by the smell of lunch being prepared, so we were able to get some food early when the Island BBQ started. We enjoyed chicken & ribs with slaw and fresh fruit.
There were a good number of shops selling T-shirts, dresses, etc. Prices were good and there was no pressure from the sales people.
The water was absolutely beautiful, but too cold for us. We have spent most of our lives in south Florida, so we don't get in until the water hits 84 to 86 degrees.
The tenders were very efficient at this location, and never overly crowded. It was simple and quick to get back to the boat.
Our trip to Nassau was wonderful. Shopping on Bay street was busy, but we found many good deals. Some nice bargains on jewelry. Del Sol has T-shirts and other items that change color in the sun. We bought nail polish for our daughter that is clear and sparkly, but turns purple in the sun, the clear again in the shade. Lot of fun for her. I was surprised how nice the people were. How often do you walk down the middle of a busy sidewalk and hear people say, "excuse me," or "sorry sir"? We ran into a few tourist officials wearing vests that asked if we needed any help. They sounded very sincere.
