St. Maarten and Anguilla 2.5 – We’re Coming Back!

Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Vacation choices can be difficult to make, at least in my family’s case. First, it’s expensive, especially when you add in two little tax deductibles that now have to have their own seat. Second, because it’s expensive, you don’t want to get the choice wrong. Then there’s the fact that there are so many beautiful beaches to visit in the Caribbean – how do you choose? It’s a nearly impossible proposition but one that we are lucky to be...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Getting Down and Dirty With the Green in Antigua

Tagged: ,

Who said branches can’t be picturesque? This image, taken from a beach in Antigua, portrays a branch/twig propped up among some of the most glorious sand you’ll find anywhere. With the blues that helped make Antigua famous functioning as a picturesque backdrop, it might be all the proof we need that one man’s trash (in this case, Mother Nature) is another’s treasure.

Tagged: , , , , ,

It looks like the reopening of The Beach Bar, located on Cruz Bay in St. John, isn’t just big news for beach bar bums but for the island well. It’s big enough news, at least, to prompt News of St. John to post an article on a Friday evening (prime happy hour time) announcing that the Beach Bar had scheduled its reopening date.

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – St. Barths

Tagged: ,

Just over two months ago, I posted an image of a view from a beach in St. Barts. Back then, I wasn’t clear on whether or not to call it St. Bart’s, St. Barts, St. Barths, St. Bartholemew, St. Barthelmie or whatever name it goes by. I think I ended up just settling on St. B and nine weeks later, that viewpoint hasn’t changed. This week’s vote for the most liked beach pic was a close one with a surprising contender popping up from...
