One thing we were all looking forward to during our Bahamas trip was visiting Noname Key to see the pigs. My sister has been a couple of times with her friends and kept saying how much I’d love it. (Well, she warned that the big pigs might freak me out… and she was right ha!)
We had plans to visit Baker’s Bay that afternoon so we had to squeeze the pigs in that morning. With the schedule we actually considered skipping it altogether; so glad we didn’t! We ended up going bright and early– pretty sure it was around 8 am. Not an ideal time to be donning bathing suits when the islands were experiencing a “cold front,” but it was 100% worth it.
It was pretty chilly though so the pigs weren’t swimming. We just walked up and down the shore. The best part of going so early? No one else was there!!! Bloggers frequently work angles to make it look like no one is there, but in this case, it really was empty.
Mackenzie was legit a pig whisperer. She may be afraid of cats, but pigs? No problem!
This little guy was the cutest one of the bunch. And very hungry. We chopped up apples on the boat and brought them out with us. I can’t tell you how happy they were to munch on the apples!
Kelly was much braver than I was with the momma pigs!
After our pig excursion, we wanted to jump off the boat. By “we,” I mean Mackenzie. She’s a great peer pressurer, all in the name of fun, of course. (The things she has gotten me to do over the years…. some you would literally never believe, ha!) I figured Mackenzie wouldn’t give up until I said yes, so I got on board right away and Kelly followed suit shortly after.
We told Sean he has one try to get the shot because we were only going to do the jump once. He did get the photos on the first try (see our dry hair?!) but we had so much fun that we actually did the jump again. I was freezing and the water was definitely warmer than the air. It also just felt good to be floating in the water again– I missed that.
