Walking around Cockburn Town, Bahamas

by Matt on March 4, 2009

Matt in the Bahamas

While on a walk through Cockburn Town this morning with  Adam, Elise, Jaden and Diane we came across some of the most beautiful brightly colored buildings that dotted the coastline of the village. It was a sensory overload in the most delightful way possible — the sun, the water, the breeze and my friends. Diane snapped this photo of me and I don’t think I’ve been this relaxed in oh, about 39 years. And for once it’s a shot of me without an inflatable doll, something on my head or dressed in something ridiculous. My mom is gonna love it.

Really great shot. You can tell you like the person behind the camera. I want to live in that house.

For such a beautiful town, sure sounds like it hurts. Maybe too many nudists! Make sure that troublemaker of mine doesn’t get you guys into too much trouble. Hope you all are having a great time. Todd.

Hi Handsome Son, glad to see you are finally relaxing. Is’t the background the same turquoise as your bedroom back in Galveston when you were in the 6th grade ?
