Hurrican Sandy has followed us to Nassau and after a very long day yesterday we were the last flight in before they shut the airport. Our hotel is lovely and has an amazing view of the palm trees bending in the heavy winds while the normally calm tourqoise sea has white caps on it.
It is 41 years ago that I was here during Hurricane Betsy. Left alone with the children i was looking after I obeyed all the rules about storing water and getting candles. Half emptying the pool etc: unfortuneatley I forgot to stop the pool from completley emptying.... agh! so i had to refill it with very expensive water. Luckily by the time the parents got back the pool was half full again and i tried to look relaxed.
Can't wait to go out and see some places. will post proper photos tomorroe
