Sick on a boat

Nassau second time around was even better. I enjoyed two great days there going for runs, visiting downtown nassau, bargining at the straw market. And then came the night out!
WE all got dress up in epilet shirts (Cameron and I had to borrow) and black pants to accompany Mr. and Mrs. to dinner at the 5 twins resturant in Atlantis. Now for those of you who do not know what an epilet shirt is it is the white button down shirt that comes with stripped epilets (bars) on your shoulder, Very navy. hehe!! What a spectacle we made. Three guys all over 6'2" lead the way followed by three more guys one puching mr. in his wheel chair, followed by four girls and one more guy escorting mrs. All of us in uniform (except for Mr. and Mrs. who were dressed formally)! To put it in the words of one tourist - WOW. We were all kind of self consious about being a bit on parade...but the more I thought about it the more I I am being treated to a meal that was amazing (you don't want to know what the bill came to) and I'm going to be a part of a story for SO many tourists and that is pretty cool. So I revealed in being a spectacle.
Upon returning to the boat I began to feel kind of sick and to make a long story short I lost the next two days fighting terrible cold! Let me just say being sick on land sucks -- but being sick on a boat is even worse!! Oh well I think the worst is over with and we are back in the Abacos (near treasure) so I'm in my old stomping grounds! Their son and his wife and kids are here for the next week and so there is going to be quite the string of parties! FUN!!
