Friday morning in Nassau began with a tour of the luxurious Atlantis Resort on beautiful Paradise Island.

Atlantis features a stunning underground aquarium with a multitude of sea creatures.

After the tour of Atlantis, Faye shuttled the group over to Crocodiles Restaurant for a delicious tropical island lunch.

Friday night, the Banquet was kicked off in high Bahamian style with a Junkanoo band in full dress. The music and costumes were fabulous!

The Honorable Perry Christie and Carmen Turner at the Banquet. At this time, he was the Leader of the Opposition, and later became Prime Minister.
