Florida Journal - Nassau, The Bahamas - Part I

We took a short cruise over to Nassau in The Bahamas. Above is a pinwheel sign which was prominent on a building in the downtown section. The sentiment sounded good to me.

The following photos were also taken in the same area which is just a few blocks from the cruise ship docks.

On the main shopping street, most of the buildings are painted pastel colors.

One of the local taxis; there were taxi cabs also if one preferred.

The police (also on the main shopping street).

We took a water taxi from the main dock area over to the Atlantis Hotel/Resort where we were to meet my cousin who lives in Nassau. 

Most of the mail arrives by boat.

Hi Martha,
Glad you could make it down to Nassau. Hope that Shirley and Al are doing well. I have not been there in several years.

Great photos of downtown. It's a very picturesque little village.
