We woke up at 5 AM in Miami, showered and checked out of the Days Inn Miami Airport North and drove to the Rental Car Center. There we dropped off our rental car at Avis rental. 6:30 AM
Then we went into the American Airlines counter and checked two bags to Nassau Bahamas. We then went through Checkpoint 4 and got into the terminal 7:40 AM. We grabbed some pastries at Au Bon Pain and boarded the flight American Eagle 3495 from D53 at 9:20 AM we left by 9:30 AM and started to decent by 9:55 AM.
We filled the immigration paper work (1/person) and finished out customs check and got out. One of the airport people directed us to a taxi and we took a ride to Nassau Palm Hotel. The charge for three of us was $34 (they accept both US Dollars and/or Bahamian Dollars; they are kept at one to one equivalent. One rarely sees Bahamian Dollar used though).
We checked into the Hotel and went to the room. It was okay but the shower was not good. Soon we changed our cloths and hit the beach right in front of the Hotel.We were there for quite a while and walked slowly toward downtown and ate at the McDonalds.
We ran into a couple who suggested an Indian Restaurant. We went back to the room and changed our cloths and walked toward the Ferry station. We took the 2:15 PM ferry and arrived at the Paradise Island and we spent about 1 ½ hour there. That place looked too commercial and we walked back to the main island and took a taxi back to the hotel
Then we hit the beaches again until about 5 PM. Then we came back to the room changed and walked back to the downtown looking for the Indian Café and found it in Charlotte Street in front of Hard Rock Café. We ate there and met the Indian family from Bombay who owns the place.
We then walked back to the room spending some time at the beach
