A Relaxing Vacation
I spent a very relaxing week in Nassau, Bahamas. Our condo was situated at the northeast end of the island, which was great for walking to many restaurants and shopping. It's also a short little jaunt over to Paradise Island where there are two main attractions. First, Atlantis, a Vegas style casino and resort that will not disappoint. They have beautiful gardens and pools, fantastic restaurants (and Starbucks), a spa and a wonderful concierge who gave us many good insider tips. Paradise Island is also the home of the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat. A beautiful, simple, quiet place to do yoga, relax, walk in nature, eat healthy food and meet lovely people. Another great place is the Canadian owned Goodfellow Farms on the west side of the island. A wonderful venue for lunch, and a great little country store. If you are a Bob Marley fan, the Marley resort is a pretty cool place to stop and have a look around. Be sure to walk the shore and eat the local conch delicacies.
