Oops, I did it again.

I just can't satiate my Guana Cay addiction.

So I dove in for another taste.

How about we just hit the highlights?

The food: If it's battered, deep fried, golden brown, carb laden, and swimming in fat on a paper plate, I'll eat it in the Abacos. Just to keep my mom off my back, I throw in a green thing every now and then.

The drinks: Because you need to keep your blood alcohol level up to ward off those pesky mosquitoes.

The sunrises: There simply aren't words.

The sunsets: So beautiful they make my heart hurt.

Nippers: Because it's not a trip to Guana without Sunday Funday!

The Wildlife: Sharks and stingrays and screaming! Oh my!

Blue water and white sand: Because that is the recipe for happiness, my friends.

The colors of the Bahamas: Because nothing brightens my day like a little pop of color.

Good friends and good times: That's what a trip to Abaco is all about.

Before I go, I want to give a special "shout out" to Shawna Deal of Easy Touch Massage from Marsh Harbour (easytouchmassage@yahoo.com or find her on Facebook!). Us "girls" wanted massages and with no spa on Guana, we were able to get Shawn to come over for a half day to give us in home massages. While Bikini Hut is not, in fact, a Bikini Store, it apparently can operate quite well as a part-time spa, complete with mimosas and Shawna's magic hands. I recommend contacting her if you ever have a few folks that want a massage on the cays or if you are going to be in Marsh Harbour.

See....I'm not always long winded.

I will tell you one story. On our last day of our week in Abaco, a sign appeared to me in the sky.

In case you can't all see what is OBVIOUS, it was clearly a giant lobster.

I took it as a sign that we weren't supposed to leave.

Obviously, Matt didn't agree with me, because I am home now.

Sigh.
