We Built Our Own Beach Bar – Shannon and Roxanna Sharp’s Da Luv Shack

Tagged: , , ,

I’ve seen some impressive backyard beach bars/escapes but Shannon and Roxanna Sharp’s “Da Luv Shak” is among the best. Calling Kingwood, Texas home (where even the tiki is bigger in Texas), the Sharps’ love for the Caribbean can be seen spread out across their backyard. Including the Kenny Chesney No Shoes Nation flag, various Virgin Islands accoutrements, plenty of bottles of rum to a beach bar any beach bar owner would be proud of,...

Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of summer in the States and as we head into September and October, many islands in the Caribbean switch gears into their low season. Those months are spent taking a break from the summer travel season and getting refreshed for the upcoming one. Here’s to hoping this year’s off-season is quieter than last year’s and that the scene welcoming us back to our favorite islands is a...

Looking Back and Looking Forward – Hurricane Irma One Year On

Tagged: , ,

When Hurricane Irma hit a year ago today, my world was in quite a different place than the people that stood in its path. On the morning of September 6th, while Irma was ravaging the islands of the Caribbean, we were nestled safely in the US Midwest, closing on our new house, celebrating with lunch at one of our favorite restaurants and trying to decide what we were going to do for my birthday the next day. Even in the midst of all...

Tagged: , , , , , ,

When it comes to the beach bars on South Friars Bay in St. Kitts, there is one beach bar that stands out for its sheer magnificence – Carambola Beach Club. With most of the beach bars on this popular stretch of beach leaning towards the “shack” type on the beach bar spectrum, Carambola, just as it has on the beach, has claimed the opposite side. With concrete, stone and modern amenities abounding, the owners of Carambola set their...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Tagged: , ,

When I first came across this picture of the view from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, a country consisting of multiple islands in the Caribbean, I figured it would be a mild upset if some other image was the most popular “beach pic of the day” post from the previous week. I guess I should have put some money on it as the followers of my Facebook page agreed. The image captures most of the characteristics we appreciate about the...

Three and a Half Minutes at Bugaloe Beach Bar in Aruba

Tagged: , , ,

When a Youtube channel calling itself “Memories and Mojitos” posts a video about Bugaloe Beach Bar in Aruba, you take notice. After all, if we aren’t making mojitos at a beach bar, chances are still pretty good that we’re making memories. In all honesty, the alliterative side of me is jealous that I didn’t come up with the name myself. I mean, Beach Bar Bums is hard to beat when it comes to alliteration...
