Ahhhh, the beach
After a day of beach and pool fun, we decided to head to Bay Street, which is known as the seafood station in Nassau. The fresh seafood is brought directly from the boats at the marina to the restaurants, which also are located at the marina. All the restaurants are small, noisy, busy, and located RIGHT next to each other. Some so close that they share walls. But the food is great. The bahamians love to serve the seafood fried, so you have to be careful with ordering, unless you want an unidentifiable fish-fry on your plate. My dinner still had his eye-balls, so he was the most identifiable of them all! Actually it was delicious, and only a tiny bit dry at the edges. Service is definitely a draw-back. A few tables never got their food, and sometimes we waited for a half an hour for just a glass of water.
The dinner experience took over two hours. Another draw-back is that there is only one out-building for bathrooms for all the restaurants in the middle of the little Bay Street square. And if you have to go, you have to leave the restaurant, walk past the hooting and hollering locals in the night time, and use the facilities in the little shack in the middle of the square. Not exactly Ritz Carlton accommodations, but not pooping in the woods either.
After a marathon-dinner experience, we made the 10-minute cab ride back to the resort and had another marathon night at the Telegraph Bar. The bar tender already knew us by name - not sure if that's good of bad - but we had fun anyway. The DJ took all of our silly requests and the bartender was making his regular double-shot drinks. Phew. I have no idea how I'll make it through 3 more nights like this.
