The Bahamas

Aruba, Jamaica, ooo I wanna take you
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don’t we go Jamaica
Off the Florida Keys
There’s a place called Kokomo
That’s where you wanna go to get away from it

The Bahamas Adventure II

We had such an incredible trip flying to the Bahamas last year that it was immediately obvious this year that there was no question that we would make the flight out to the Bahamas. Who wouldn’t want a taste of the Tropics, sunshine, warmth and paradise after the frigid sub-zero temperatures we were experiencing?
