My Bahamas Cruise

I landed in Miami...it was really hot... That's one beautiful city and it's always good to be there but it was a short stay... Made a run to the bank to pick up some cash then went to the Port of Miami to board the ship...


Once I got on the ship I didn't even unpack.. First thing I did was take off my clothes put on my swimming trucks and laid in the sun....


Once the ship took off and we were in the ocean... I looked for the view of the sun... When I feel the sun I know the Most High is touching me...God is real


I was trying to get a tan...beer belly out and the only thing I was missing was some weed...but I was so relaxed I didn't even need to smoke anything... I felt high with nothing at all


The ship was huge... The first few hours not that many people were out... I guess they were getting settled in and unpacking


The breeze felt amazing.. A perfect balance with the heat from the sun


All I could do is think about sharing this with my family and friends...I never felt so relaxed in my life.. I was at peace... No cellphone, no tv, no Internet


I had to dress up for dinner and get my Malcolm X on... I have more photos on my camera...I will post them later...once I got to the island I went straight to the "ghetto" the people treated me like one of their own... I'm not down with that tourist stuff... If I can't be around my own people then something is wrong... I will post more of the ghetto pics later once I get to City of Ink








More video and photos coming soon from the Bahamas

It looks like you had an AMAZING time. Being able to chill out and appreciate everything from the sun to the water WITHOUT interruption is definitely peace.

Love the pics and definitely want to go to the Bahamas now... you capture some of the simplest things on earth and bring them to life thru your eyes and your words. Makes you learn to appreciate just everyday life in itself!! Keep inspiring us thru your art and ability to write so that we may continue to see the world thru the eyes of Miya Bailey...
Thanks for sharing your vacay

Thanks for sharing Miya. For those of us who have been blessed to take that trip I love to hear the stories of that moment when you actually arrive and step out into the reality of actual african culture with an Island twist. You took me back to that moment when I stopped my sight seeing stroll(the little boys diving for sea shells for the tourist and school was in session)I cant believe I missed that amazing art work. I suppose we naturally take notice of those things that keep us motivated. Im glad you were able to find some peace amongst all this chaos and I cant wait to see how this trip comes out in your artwork!!

Sydney said...

you looking real sharp in that suit miya...and i love being able to read what you have to say but i know that actually being in front of you and hearing you is a different experience but way better. because i learn so much and always hear wisdom just flowing so naturally

Hey Miya

Love the photos and always love the stories. Your name is international yet you stay humble making you a real nucca fo' sho. And I cant agree with you more about simply being born here and sharing in none of the beliefs. I would personally enjoy having a spot in Canada and the Caribbean if my money was right.

I love this post! I can relate. One thing I love about cruises is the fact that when you are way out in the ocean and you cant see a piece of land you are at peace. Its just you the sun and the water. No communication! Yippy! LOL. I love the Malcom X look fam! Enjoy life!

Men in black.... Wow you look real suave in that suit. But WTF is up with "having" to dress up on a cruise? That pic of the sun on the water's surface is awesome. I always try to appreciate the moments when nature's beauty is so blinding you just can't help but stop and thank God for letting you experience this... in spite of the ignorance of man. I think a lot of the shit they offer on cruise ships actually pulls us away from these kinds of moments. You don't need casinos when you've got sunsets and ocean.

Thanks for sharing!
