Instagram Monday – In Texas, Even the Tiki is Bigger

Tagged: , , ,

Everything’s bigger in Texas, so the saying goes, and when it comes to the backyard tiki bar of Ruben and Crystal Rios, those four words couldn’t ring more true. And it’s not just a bar – it’s a whole vilage, full of tiki trappings around every corner that have turned this backyard into an escape many resorts would be proud of. If I could start a new blog that featured just their backyard, I would. If I could actually write the...

Getting to Know the Bikini Sunset

Tagged: , , , ,

One of my favorite Anguilla based photographers is Samantha Laurent who is originally from Dominica but now calls Anguilla home. I first met Samantha online through her Instagram and Tumblr sites (and later on Facebook) under her BikiniSunset profile and fast became an admirer of her work.

Beach Bar Bums Hit the Beach and Get Their Drink On

Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Last weekend, I posted a photo to my Facebook page of a Wadadli beer on Turner’s Beach during our first visit to Antigua. I asked the people who had liked the page to post pics of themselves enjoying their favorite beverages on the beach and promised to feature the image with the most “likes” in an article. We ended up having four people tie with the most likes and three of them, along with the stories behind the...

Tagged: , , ,

I first met Marybeth from Beaches, Bars and Bungalows, a site filled with Florida travel tips, on Instagram and as soon as I saw the name of her website, I knew I had to get to know this Florida-based blogger better (must be a three “B” thing – obviously someone who can appreciate alliteration). After you hear her story and find out what Beaches, Bars and Bungalows is all about (yes, a lot of it is about beaches, bars and bungalows),...

Beach Bar Bums Focus – Some Much Needed Rum Therapy

Tagged: , , , ,

Ever since I started this blog, Rum Therapy® has been one of those sites that I check on a daily basis. The images John and Pamela Ott share on their site and social media channels can’t help but grab your attention – they’re out of this world gorgeous and have a tendency to transfer you to another world as you get lost in a tropical daydream. More than just sharing pretty pictures, they also write about their travel...

Beach Bar Bums Take Over Floyd’s Pelican Bar in Jamaica

Tagged: , , , , ,

Last week I shared a picture of Floyd’s Pelican Bar that our friends over at Rum Connection had taken. It proved to be a pretty popular post, as are most images of the unique Pelican Bar and before I knew it, one of the fans of my page started peppering the comments section with his own pictures of the Pelican Bar. OK, “peppering” may not be the most appropriate word but after seeing the first few of his images, I...
