One of my favorite places visit is the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas. I've been twice, and I would give my pinkie toe to go back again sometime soon. The islands are spectacularly beautiful; it's unlike any place I've ever been. The beaches are gorgeous, the locals are friendly and the activities are boundless.

If you enjoy snorkeling, boating or other water activities, or even if you'd just like to catch up on some pleasure reading, you're sure to have a good time in the Abacos. I love marine life and the sea, so snorkeling was one of the best parts of my trips. The water is incredibly clear, and the fish are so different from what I'm used to seeing as a Florida native. This is a cute picture that I took of a dog going for a swim. He looks like he doesn't have a care in the world, right?
