Every morning Derek and I woke up to watch the sunrise. There was some cloud cover but the sun eventually poked through.
In the lower lobby of our hotel there was a monstrous fish tank. Some of the fish were gigantic, include rays that had a 9ft. wing span. In addition to walking around the fish tank and seeing inside, you could go outside and look down into it. This is where we saw the feedings. It was quite an experience.
The most obvious architecture of Atlantis, The Royal Towers (The Cove is in the back right). We stayed in the West tower on the 14th floor. Since they build hotels without the 13th floor due to superstition, were we really on the 13th floor? I don’t understand how that works.
The beautiful lagoon is deceiving. Underneath the calm surface is a handful of hammer head sharks. There are signs warning vacationers not to swim in these dangerous waters; ironically, there is literally nothing stopping you from wading in the water. Only a sign? Hmmm…interesting. On the other hand, there are no signs suggesting it is dangerous to walk through the lagoon…
Such a wonderful trip! Special thanks to those that made it happen!
