Came home ll/2. Thanks, Danny for your help. We stayed at Our Lucaya
for the first night. They upgraded us twice. Had a fifth floor room
overlooking pools and beach. Saw the sunrise. Just a note: tips are
included, even for baggage handling. Anyone who wants to eat at Fatman's
Nephew...tell them little Tracey sent you! As my handicapped daughter is
an aspiring chef, she asked for the recipe for Johnny Cake. The following
morning Stanley (Sr.) gave her a cooking lesson! It was very wonderful of
him. So try the Johnny Cake.
Highlights of the trip were Club Caribe and
Paradise Cove. They both come to get you (C.C. for just buying your lunch
there... conch fritters and conch chowder are the best!!) ( P.C. actually
taught an old lady ME to snorkle). Airtran was great with no delays, 1/2
planes and upgraded us twice to business class. All in all this was one of
my best trips to GBI in 20 years.
The only bad part was that Bahamia looks like a total war zone. I doubt
that it will be ready in Dec. That's just a month away. Even the casino
looked like a bomb hit it.
Ladies, go to the perfume factory and make your own. My daughter had made
some 9 years ago. They keep the recipe.. since she was actually allergic
to the cassia in it, they adjusted her recipe (without charging the $30 to
make a scent) and she made a cream for only $5. How's that for a deal?
Now, I better unpack, been home for a week , but still reveling in the
Thanks to Pat for this trip report ...
