The Bahamas Keep Moving

We didn't have the best of weather for our Florida visit, but what we did have were some gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean. When we weren't on our completely deserted stretch of beach, we were quite frequently just sitting on the balcony of our room, staring out into the distance.

One night I woke around 3am, and I just couldn't resist taking one more peek out the window. To my surprise I found that in the darkness I could see the lights from one of the Bahamian islands in the distance. I was amazed that I could see that far, and I debated waking Lori to let her take a look, but she had been pretty tired earlier, so I decided to let her sleep and I went back to bed.

I couldn't get back to sleep though. I kept thinking about the view and finally I decided that I would wake Lori so she could take a quick look. Fortunately, just before I woke her, I took one more glance out the window and much to my surprise noticed that the Bahamas had moved about 30 miles to the north. I decided that I really didn't need to wake Lori to watch the lights of a passing cruise ship. Most of all, I didn't need to be mocked for the rest of our stay about my super-powerful eyesight that could see all the way to the Bahamas. That could remain my little secret.

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby and Friday Daydreamin at R We There Yet Mom. If you didn't get here from one of those sites, you should really go check them out. There's people there who know that you can't see the Bahamas from Melbourne. One of them could have mentioned that to me.
