Bahamian Wildlife

Hey guys! Happy Saturday! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend so far <3


We didn’t end up taking a kayak yesterday because it was too windy, but we did encounter quite a bit of Bahamian wildlife.

Lots of lizards!



A seagull, that kept jumping into the pool to bathe and cool off


A kitty, who was curled up under one of the pub benches


A JELLYFISH, who decided to sting me on the right ta-ta and looked pretty much like this:

Actually, I didn’t see it. I just felt it and the pilot thinks it was probably a small tentacle that had broken off and was floating around.

That ish hurt. And I’ve never wanted to punch a jellyfish so badly in my life 😉

We also encountered a rabbit of the “towel” species.


He came bearing gifts of chocolate, which we happily ate 😀

The plan for today is to do Insanity, which we skipped out on yesterday, grab bfast and hit up the beach. Hopefully it will be less windy so we can kayak 🙂 And hopefully, no more jellyfish will want to pick a fight 😉

See ya laterrrr. Have a fabulous Saturday!

  1. Stupid jellyfish. I’ve never been stung by one so I’m just gonna take your word for it that it hurt.

    Awww I love going on trips where you get towel animals. My husband took a class when we were on a cruise so now (he thinks) he’s a professional. Hahaha

    Have fun! I hope the wind dies down so you can kayak today!!

    DUMB JELLYFISH! Those are infamous in the beaches in Batangas over here. I’m so glad I didn’t encounter any during my 3-day getaway (thanks to my excessive paranoia).

    I’ve never been to a hotel where they form towels into animals!! That is so cute. 🙂

    Ohhh…you guys are going to have such great memories of this trip. Love the pics!

    um, OUCH! I’m sorry girl! Looks like you’re having a stellar time though!

  6. Jo on May 15, 2010 at 10:34 am

    I have never been stung but I have images of Monica, Joey and Chandler and the whole weeing thing! Glad you’re having a good time and hope the weather settles enough for you guys to get some kayak action in 🙂

    ugh to being stung! that’s awful. did you have to pee on it? hahah i had to ask seeing as how i’ve never been stung and am dying to know!

  8. Hilary@coffeeismycarrot on May 15, 2010 at 10:55 am

    I love towel critters! So cute! Our honeymoon to Belize was full of them (a new one everyday). Monkeys, swans, etc. Such a small thing but it made me happy. Love the bunny! That’s a new one.

    yeh im with karyn… i had the traumatic experience of being stung by a jelly on my foot. but he got me good. i stepped on it basically so my whole foot was on fire and stinging…. soooo my dad told MY BROTHER to pee on me!!!! Are you kidding me?!?!?! I mean thats every little brothers dream right there…. telling him its okay to pee on his sister. OH so he thought it was funny and my dad had to hold me down then warmth went all over my foot… and shortly after… most of the sting was gone. you could really see the spots tho. ICK! butttt Im sure asking the pilot to pee on your boob sounds less than desirable… unless you’re into that kinda thing lol. JUST KIDDING GINAA… hahaha OH and btw… the hub went to the flight line this week and saw the a-10 and it is just one hunk of black metal now is how he described it. so I hope pilots wingmans okay. =]

    Hey pretty lady!
    Haha I will love you forever for taking your Vita-Mix to The Bahamas!

    Mucho love (and chocolate),

    sounds like you’re having a blast! something fun to do: see if they have hobie cats! (flat bottomed boats with sails) – we took them out when we went on our honeymoon in St. Lucia and had an awesome time! but beware of wind 🙂

    The only creature I’ve seen lately is the illusive Northern Reticulated Fitnessista. Often found near starbucks and malls, the Hopping Fitnessista has been known to visit beaches on occasion. Her preferred sources of food include salmon, salads and larabars which aid in keeping her quite tranquil; however, if you should encounter the Fitnessista with vino in hand, direct eye contact is not advised – This is the time when the Fitnessista is at her most unpredictable (characterized by the distinctive “booty shakin’) ; often leading to misclassification as a total party animal.

    Haha, the pilot…too funny! Glad you are having a good time. Sorry about the sting! YIKES! I need to be in a tropical paradise right now! Enjoy your Saturday!

  14. Mara @ What's For Dinner? on May 15, 2010 at 11:38 am

    OMG i hate jellyfish (except the kind in finding nemo, they were pink and cute!) Hope your sting feels better soon!
    Pilot: you crack me up.

  15. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on May 15, 2010 at 11:39 am

    What fun! Sorry about your bum 🙁


  16. Susan on May 15, 2010 at 12:20 pm

    Sorry you got stung!! Enjoy your honeymoon.

  17. Raya @ Raya Runs on May 15, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    I was going to make a comment about the Friends episode with the jellyfish but someone beat me to it 🙂

    So sorry you got stung!!

  18. Maya on May 15, 2010 at 12:35 pm

    You would have kicked the jelly fish’s butt. You’ve got Shaun T on your side. Hope you’re recovering from the sting!
