Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas. Half of the countries 250,000 population live on New Providence Island (Nassau’s location). From 1690 to 1720, Massau had the highest concentration of pirates in the new worl – Blackbeard was said to live here.
This is our second visit to Nassau on the last visit we spent on the day on the beach so this time we decided to walk to the Queens Staircase, Water Tower and Fort Fincastle that overlooks the harbour stopping to find a couple of geocaches on the way.
Conch is a big seller here with shells for sale from local boats and also a man selling fresh conch meat in a salad dish.
Our Nephew, Edward, is one of the Dancers on the Carnival Liberty and today is also a special day as we celebrate Edward’s birthday at dinner. This of course is the reason why we are on the Carnival Liberty on this particular day.
We found a geocache at the queens staircase with the help from a local stallholder. Who we rewarded with the purchase of a neclace for Trish.
