The Tiny Heart: Bahamas: Day Looks

Bahamas: Day Looks

During the day, we mostly sat on the beach and then walked across the street to the Daiquiri Shack for lunch. They had every fresh fruit you imagine to put into your daiquiri and then they poured a very generous amount of rum in. This one guy hung out there every day and he looked like a Bahamian Flava Flav. I wish I would've gotten a photo of him!



We also ventured downtown to go shopping. This was my shopping outfit (and one of the few times I wore clothes other than a bikini during the day):

Tank-A&F (similar for $5), Shorts-Target Kids (similar), Watch-Michael Kors (cute option), Sandals-AE (similar), Crossbody Bag-Coach (similar), Sunnies-Ray Ban Jr. (similar Ray Bans)

We discovered this man that was selling conch (that he had just caught) off his boat.


See that table? That's where he chopped up the fresh conch and made it into a salad. Naturally, my hubby decided he wanted to try it. (I was in the corner, standing far away from it and trying not to puke at the thought of eating it).


Adam right before he ate the conch. I had the ambulance on standby.
But no worries, he was fine!

  7. Girl, that drink was huge next to you! I love seeing "normal-sized" things next to you so I can really get a feel for how tiny you truly are. And then you have to rub it in my face by having a precious pair of kid shorts on! How dare you!

    1. Haha, Katie! I have REALLY small hands so that's probably why the drink looks massive. :)

    1. He said it tasted kind of like eel or calamari. He liked it, but didn't love it.

  17. A daiquiri sounds good right about now since it's already close to 90 degrees. I'd also love a pair of those patterned shorts...but I don't think I could fit into the kiddie sizes.

  35. Local street food is the best and most authentic way to get a taste of the culture. And part of the fun (? ! ? !) is the big questionable factor of it all, hahah.
