In and Around Bahama Bay Resort

Well, I took a week off work and now I'm home sick! Isn't that just the way! Anyways, I've got some time to post some pictures. The resort was just beautiful, and our rooms looked out onto Lake Davenport.

It was sunset when we got there, and our balconies were all screened in which makes for bad pictures, but I wanted to share anyways.

This isn't the lake, but part of the man-made pond in the centre of the resort. This little walk-way is called the "nature trail" but it really wasn't that natural. Every few feet, you'd see one of these signs:

I think that these were kinda funny. I'm not sure who would entice an alligator to do anything, but someone somewhere along the way has done it to need the warning not to. And it kinda reminds me of the movie with the giant alligator that the woman would feed by tying a cow out by the dock. Can't remember the name of it though.

From the lake looking back at our building, we were on the top floor. Those little blue things are little cabanas for sunbathers, although it was much too cold to lie out. My brother and I would go to the hot tub in the mornings, and swam in the large pool only one morning. It was just too cold, and everything was always closed by the time we'd make it back from out day out and about.

This was the lake from the dock. If someone was on a boat and made the water choppy, the metal dock would squeak so loudly. It was a little annoying once the novelty wore off.

Yeah, he wasn't that brave. Plus, we had already had a swim that morning. This was the main pool and it was nice that our building was right beside. Elsewhere on the resort, pools were located inside a cluster of buildings, but ours was the only with the lake, little sand beach and bar right beside.

Thanks for showing us where you went; sorry it was still too cool to enjoy it to the fullest! After all, that's what you expect from Florida--summer all the time...

Well, hope you feel better soon. Take care of yourself and enjoy the time off!

Love from chilly So. California...
