14 Minutes of a Grand Cayman Sunset

Tagged: , , , ,

I was perusing YouTube the other day looking for Caribbean sunsets to take me away from the onset of winter and stumbled upon the above video from Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands.

Lucky enough to return three months later to cover Moonsplash, the visit only cemented my love for the island and its inhabitants. Poetic words often escape me when trying to describe Anguilla to individuals who haven’t had the chance to visit....

A Caribbean Reminder – Why We Love St. Maarten/Martin

Tagged: , , , , ,

Of all the amazing videos Todd Hayward, our friend from Flip Flops & Palms, has put together, his production of a recent trip to St. Martin/Maarten is my favorite. During times like these, I’m thankful for people like Todd who were able to so vividly and accurately capture the beauty of the island pre-Hurricane Irma. We were able to visit St. Martin/Maarten a few years ago and it instantly became one of our favorite destinations,...
