Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Pigs and Birds, and Boats, Oh My!

Tagged: , ,

There’s something about animals and the beach people can’t resist. Make it a bird catching a ride on a swimming pig and it’s cuteness overload. Hence, it was no surprise that this image, taken in Exumas, Bahamas, was the most liked picture from our daily “beach pic of the day” posts over on the Facebook page. Can you blame the bird? Sure, it might take a little longer to get where you’re going, but it’s the islands, mon. Rush slowly....

This week’s most liked image from my daily “Beach pic of the day” posts on the Facebook page was one I captured.

Everything you’ve heard about Trunk Bay is true. I took dozens of shots of the beach and could have taken...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Pier Space in Turks and Caicos

Tagged: ,

I remember first hearing about Turks and Caicos and assuming it was in the Middle East or Africa. My assumption at the time was probably based on my association of everything Turks-related to Turkey. I still don’t know how Turks and Caicos got its name (I guess a quick Google search would clear that up) but I’m glad I figured out it’s an island paradise a short flight away in the Caribbean. While I haven’t visited it yet, I’ve had...

This week’s most popular post revealed yet another entrant onto that list as this image of a pier at Calabash Caye, located in the Turneffe Islands of Belize, proved too much to resist. Don’t plan on staying here, however, as a quick search online found only one VRBO rental offering any...

I’ve found through the years that people either love or hate Cancun – there’s no gray area when it comes to this Yucatan peninsula getaway on the beaches of Mexico. For us, it’s always been a love affair. Sure, the crowds and noise can be overwhelming depending on the circumstance. Look hard enough, though, and you’ll find your slice of paradise in Cancun no matter who you are. To download the high resolution version of the image...
