We're HOME!!!

...but only for today.

Jason and I returned home last night from a 16 day vacation to Florida to visit my mom and then onto the Bahamas to live aboard my dad's 40ft sailboat for a week. It feels great to be home, but it's short lived since we are off to Washington DC tomorrow morning with another early pre-7am flight.

I will have a long (very long) write up of our vacation coming within the next week. Given that I haven't had internet for about 16 days aside from quick e-mail checks I have a ton of work to do for this Washington trip. I also plan on reupping my .mac account so I can show you all the amazing pictures from the Bahamas.

So in short....stay tuned....just a little while longer. I promise amazing pictures and fun stories.

The weather in Washington D.C. this week is going to be un-freakin-real. It's going to be in the 60s and 70s so aside my very businessy suits, I'll have my faithful Brooks and running shorts. This year I'll have Jason with me to keep me company on the runs which will be fun.

With that I'll leave you with this picture, taken from an airplane that we took from a small island in the Exumas back to Nassau where our flight back to Chicago was taking off from.....this plane sat 6 people......yeah....it was REALLY small. This is where we spent 8 days...yes the water really is that color...there is NO photoshopping on this.

Welcome home! Nice photo. I, too, could not believe how blue that water was when I first laid eyes on it. Your photo brings back some great memories of my trip to Jamaica. Thanks for sharing your photo.
