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. If I recall correctly, the bush that this leaf comes from is...

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...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Boca Grande, Florida

Tagged: , ,

One would think that more beaches from the United States would have appeared in our weekly “Beach Thursday Pic of the Week” posts. It’s not for lack of trying. We all know it has plenty of coastline with beaches lining the Atlantic, the Pacific and the Gulf of Mexico. Plus, the vast majority of the people who follow my Facebook page reside in the States. Still, it’s an exception, rather than the rule, when a beach located in the USA...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Isla Diablo, San Blas Islands, Panama

Tagged: , , ,

It’s not often that the devil is associated with places of beauty but an exception would have to be made for Isla Diablo, a small island located in the San Blas Islands of Panama. Not to be mistaken for its similarly named “Devils’ Island” off the coast of French Guiana, Panama’s take has a much less sinister past attached to it. Outside of its name, there’s nothing frightful about it at all and as you can see from the below image,...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Cap Malhereux, Mauritius

Tagged: , ,

If you didn’t know better, you’d think this image of a beach was taken in the Caribbean. You’d be wrong. Cap Malhereux, a small village located on the northern tip of Mauritius, would be the correct answer. Do an image search for Cap Malhereux and you’ll find other equally splendid pictures of the village, especially its red roofed church. It’s an ideal scene with fishing boats at rest in the water, itself encircled by white sand and...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Leaning Palm in Fiji

Tagged: ,

When it comes to our weekly “Beach Pic of the Week” posts, it’s often hard to trump the Fiji beach scene featured below. With a palm tree leaning over a picturesque beach, calm waters and the whole scene back-lit by a setting (or rising) sun, this beach scene would have been hard to beat any week. Maybe it’s the tranquility of the scene or its ability to transform you to somewhere you’d rather be. Whatever it was, it was the most...
