BWM Contributor: My Kaleidoscope Eyes - @lavenderlunatic
50 minutes in the sky from were we took off to our destination. It was the shortest flight I’ve ever pleasantly taken. I’m totally that person glued to the window of a plane. I wasn’t sure if the ground I was viewing was indeed earth or a vivid resin art masterpiece. Turquoise is truly the color of these islands. I’ve visited Nassau before, but that was an entirely different experience. My opinion of the Bahama’s really transformed after this trip. It was more serene, more isolated and more steady.
Our days were spent on the water, and our nights were also. We were on land very little actually. Our diet consisted of pretty much all seafood. The sun made love to my skin and the air at sunset embraced my soul. Days were wet, and nights were delightful. I’d fall asleep to the gentle rock of the Caribbean sea, and wake up to it as well. I think the most thrilling life to live is to wake up knowing exploration is on the agenda today but being uncertain of whats to discover. This one night, I begged Hannah to sleep outside under the stars with me. We were in the middle of the ocean late at night traveling to a dock to stay at for the night. No land in sight. Nothing in sight for that matter. Except stars. You know how stars start to multiply the longer you stare at them? That’s one of my favorite things to do. So we laid on the back of the boat wrapped up in a light blanket and a truly phenomenal view. There was no noise but the waves crashing against our boat. A soft sea breeze and body heat. Heaven on earth. Paradise. Thousands of winking stars watching me as I watch them. My eyelids began to feel heavy, my heart was full and I slipped into the most tranquil sleep experienced.
