17 December 2006 | Atlantis
We walked around the Atlantis a bit and ran into Alex and Ellen from Eyran and Dennis and Linda from Shanty. The Atlantis grounds are pretty awesome and even if you have a natural aversion to touristy stuff you should at least give this place look. There are under water tunnels with views into the various lagoons and lots of fun places to explore for kids and adults. The water park is better than any I've seen with swimming pools, water slides that shoot through tubes underneath shark filled pools, snorkeling lagoons and of course a huge section of beach.

The marina has wifi, a lounge with pool tables, bathrooms and showers that are very nice and clean, laundry, the works. They try to be as green as possible and keep strict rules regarding discharge of anything in the marina. It's crazy expensive but pretty nice.

We met up later in the day on the veranda (our cockpit really) with Alex, Ellen and their two kids, Louic and Mia. We had a relaxing evening chatting about cruising and how they managed with two kids. We hope to see them in Exuma over the weeks ahead so that I can talk Alex into teaching me how to spear fish and catch lobster the Bahamian way (no dive tanks, sob).
