A Day at the Beach - Coco Cay, Bahamas

Good morning,

Today's images are from our trip ashore to Coco Cay, Bahamas.  This is one of Royal Caribbean's private islands.  It is gorgeous!

Above is one of the tenders that carries guests between ship and shore.
At the entrance to the harbor is a fountain that is a copy of The Mermaid in Copenhagen, Denmark.
If you haven't brought your own snorkel gear, you can rent it here.
You can play water sports, snorkel, just sit on the beach, play beach games, go para sailing, ride jet skis, have a great lunch....
There is a nurse's station (right) in case it is needed.
You can also buy a cool drink. 
I just like to sit on a beach chair.
This is my view in my favorite spot.  ;)
 I also took a walk to get some pictures of the beach.

Nice pictures you show from the Bahamas.
My daughter + 3 brønebørn are currently in the Caribbean on chartertrejse (14 days) - probably not very "Christmas" there.
Wish you a nice trip.
The weather here in Denmark pt: rain / wind + 6.0 degrees.

I like your seasonal header...though it is a bit at odds with the sunny pics. Hope you are getting some projects finished whilst lazing...

I want to sink my toes in that sand!

Hi Everyone,

It sure is pretty on Coco Cay! It has changed quite a bit with more activities over the years.

I don't go ashore very often - usually only when Catherine is here so I can sit on the beach with her belongings while she snorkels. ;) It's in my Mom job description.

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by and for your kind comments.

I found you! My computer insisted you did not exist.

Wonderful photos...oh, that we all could be there.
