Soon A Vacation With Just My Wife!!!!

It has been almost 6 years since my wife and I got away together; just us, no kids.  At the end of September Papa and Granny will be coming out to watch the girls so we can depart for a week of bliss!

Ever since we went to Sandals Antigua on our honeymoon, Sandals has become a favorite resort vacation group for us. This time we will be going to Sandals Emerald Bay located in the Exumas, Bahamas and on this trip we will be flying ourselves! We have never been to this resort, but after visiting the Exumas twice before, I know this place will be perfect and I can't wait to share it's beauty with my lovely wife.

I figure it will be about a 3 1/2 hour flight nonstop from Jacksonville (KCRG) to Exumas International (MYEF).  Weather permitting I figure we could take off around 9:30 am which should put us perfectly situated at the resort in time to check-in.  I have realized that except for the two flights in a C-172 that we made while we were dating, this will be the first flight my wife has sat up front with me in the 4+ years of plane ownership.  I promised her the co-pilot seat does recline so I'm hoping she doesn't miss her roomy aft part of the cabin too much!

If you notice, our planned route takes us right down the Exuma Islands chain.  We'll definitely have to start our descent around Nassau to cruise the Exumas at around 1000 feet.  No better way to do it!


  1. That looks awesome! Have fun!

  2. Echo what Chris said, I'll add that it should be a great trip!

  3. I love Exuma! I was there 2 weeks ago and stayed at Grand Isle, next to Sandals. Grand Isle's is incredible and they have a pilot deal right now. Check out MyOutIslands.com for Private Pilot Package deals. http://www.myoutislands.com/USA-private-pilots.cfm

    You will have a great time. Check out Chat-n-Chill on the Stocking Islands for some of the best/freshest conch salad in the all of the Bahamas. They also have a beach shack that serves incredible Burgers, Conch burger, grilled food all the time and they have a pig roast every Sunday.

    Odyssey Aviation just built a new FBO in Georgetown and will take great care of you and your airplane.
