These pictures were taken in December a year or 2 ago but the water makes it feel like summer to me. And what could be more pink than the Atlantis Hotel? And do you see the pink hibiscus framing us?
John went with his daughters to the straw market and I, with my sister and friends, took a water taxi to go to the Atlantis.
The view along the way was breath taking. We even passed by Nicholas Cage and John Travolta's family vacation homes.
Taking fun pictures, lol! If you have not tasted Tortuga rum cakes, you should. I love the different flavors.
The Atlantis is just as beautiful inside as it is outside. With me here are some very close friends that I used to dance with when we lived in Illinois. We used to belong to a Fil-Am dance troupe and we would be doing performances all over. I sure miss those days!
I will never forget our visit there. After walking around, everybody got busy playing with slot machines. Now, I am not one who likes to gamble (I would rather go shopping) but I got tired of waiting for everybody so I went looking for a 25 cent slot and settled there. I figured if I placed a $50 bill (which was the smallest bill that I was carrying at that time), it would go a long way and maybe my companions will be all done playing before I could lose it all, but hopefully, I would win. After 2 pulls in the slot, I wondered why the machine stopped playing. I called an attendant thinking I had a defective machine. But it was my brain that was defective, lol, for I sat in front of a $25 (not cent) slot machine. I told you, I do not like gambling. I never played again after that.
