Bun-less Burger Beauty

Ahh, the deliciousness of a well cooked, juicy, tasteful burger. Well ladies and gents, this one, was a home cooked meal.

On day three of our Bahamas adventures we scored an AWESOME fried snapper at a local café in Nassau called, “Café Skans”. Walking in, right off the bat it was noticeable that this was a small local place that’s always on the go because of it’s location in relation to where the tourists begin to…

The “Sky” Is The Limit
