Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Finding Shade in the Maldives

Tagged: ,

Maldives … blah blah blah … beautify beaches … blah blah blah … most liked image. Trying to come up with new ways to describe the beaches that adorn the islands of the Maldives becomes background noise after a while, especially coming from an unoriginal hack such as myself. This image is unique, however, in its ability to pull you into the picturesque scene. I find myself gazing into the pool-like blue water, my thoughts and...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Skimming Aruba

Tagged: ,

A sole skim boarder heading for the shore with his only companions a lonely palm tree, sand, water and threatening skies was enough to grab the imagination of my readers to make this the most reacted to image on my Facebook page from the last week. I’ve had the pleasure of vacationing in Aruba and never saw skies like this but even paradise has its bad days comparatively speaking. If this is a rough day, I’ll take a lifetime in of...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Tulum’s White Sand Beaches

Tagged: , ,

The beaches of Tulum have been putting on quite the show on the blog recently, even shoving aside the Maldives as a presumably favored destination. And even though this week’s image doesn’t feature any of the blue waters roiling off the coast of this Mexican paradise, that didn’t stop it from being this week’s most popular beach pic of the day post. It was good enough for the Mayans – I think that’s all the justification we beach bar...

Tagged: , , , ,

This image of sunset at the Islamorada Fish Company in the Florida Keys was the runaway favorite for our “beach pic of the day” posts on the Facebook page. In fact, it was one of the most popular images I’ve ever shared. It still doesn’t make me feel any better about somehow missing this spot on my couple road trips through the Keys but it does give me a really good excuse to go back. To download the high resolution version of the...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Antigua’s Shades of Blue

Tagged: ,

I’ve been lucky enough to vacation in Antigua twice and once you visit, you’ll understand why a return trip was required after the first one. After promising ourselves to visit every country in the Caribbean before we started returning to any of them, the bonds of that agreement were broken once we set foot on the beaches of Antigua. They’re amazing and have to been seen in person to be believed. Plus, with 365 of them and at least...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Trunk Bay, St. John, US Virgin Islands

Tagged: , , ,

If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting Trunk Bay on St. John in the US Virgin Islands, you’ll know that one of the benefits of spending the day there is the ride back and forth. There are vantage points galore along the road that offer majestic sweeping views of one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. While you may be slightly discontented upon the conclusion of your day at the beach, turn that frown upside down and get your camera...
