Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – The Blues and Whites of the Maldives

Tagged: ,

If the Indian Ocean country of the Maldives had national colors beyond the red and green that dominate their flag, I would be tempted to guess that they would be blue and white. An archipelago nation consisting of 26 atolls which in turn contain more than 1000 coral islands, escaping the white sand and blue water is nearly impossible. Add to that the fact that the highest point on the island is just under eight feet high (with an...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Finding My Slice of Paradise

Tagged:

I don’t know where this week’s image from my daily “beach pic of the day” posts on my Facebook page was taken but that doesn’t matter. Nor did it seem to bother any of the people who follow the page as it was the most liked image from the past week in what can only be described as a romp. I can’t help but to keep picturing myself occupying that spot underneath the palm trees on that spit of sand for a really long time. If it...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Fine Dining in Jamaica

Tagged: ,

If there’s any image that defines “fine dining” for a beach bar bum, it would be this week’s most reacted to photo on the Facebook page. Taken in Jamaica and featuring a palapa covering a small circular table and four wooden chairs, the setting is simplistic and serene. With a floor made from sand and the ocean steps away, it’s the perfect dinner spot for a crowd that favors the simple things in life. To download the high resolution...

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...
