In the Bahamas

Well friends I made it to the Bahamas and what fun it has been already! I had an authentic Bahamian dinner last night at the home of Keshia's friends and then we drove around a while. I have visited the Bahamas before, but only for a few hours at a time off a ship. Even so, I recognized some places that my DS and I walkd around at and even the restaurant where he and I had conch fritters, yum, yum. BTW homemade conch fritters were on the menu last night and I ate a bunch and would have eaten more except that there was also crab n rice and BBQ ribs, yummy to MC's tummy!

I've finally gotten to see The Scrapbook Cottge which is right on the corner of Deveau and Dondeswell Streets. The store is so cute! It isn't big but what an awesome job of space planning went into it! Now I want to buy just about everything in it! Keshia can be very proud of herself, she has done a fantastic job of setting up the first scrapbook store in the Bahamas!

As for me, I am thrilled. How many times do we get to see a scrapbook store, pristeen, fully stocked with nothing but the latest and greatest and totally untouched! The perfect reflection of the owner's vision? I have no doubt that she will be a success and I can honestly tell you all that it is worth a look see when you stop in the Bahamas! Frankly, I can see why she is dying to open and share it. But for now it's going to have to be all about me, LOL as I am going to have a hard time NOT shopping!

I can't post pictures today, but will have some I hope to post tomorrow, sine I now know what the setup is here in her office. Well off I go to take pictures of the store and make a list of items I want to buy for a special present I have in mind for a small friend of mine!

Oh, Wow! The experience of seeing a new LSS before it even opens. And to be in the Bahamas on top of that!
I really envy you M-C. Have a great time and keep up posted.
