Only a few months ago we narrowly escaped the Nepal earthquake. Five months later, Sil and I are on our way to a week of scuba diving in the Bahamas and a hurricane is ripping into the island. Fortunately, we’re stuck in Toronto after our flight was cancelled this afternoon but, secretly, I’ve always wanted to experience a hurricane first-hand (from the safety of a well-stocked concrete bunker with bullet-proof glass).
We’re hoping the scheduled flight to Nassau goes tomorrow and that the seas calm down enough to let our live-aboard scuba boat sail. If it’s still a bit stormy, that could be a pretty fun ride! Just getting to the Bahamas in time to see the tail-end of the hurricane would be an amazing experience.
Luckily, even if we’re stuck in Toronto for a few more days, Sil has family here and they have the cutest cuddly dog.
