Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Cozumel

Tagged: , ,

It’s not often that I share an image of a beach in Antigua and it isn’t the most liked picture for the week in our “beach pic of the day” posts on Facebook. This photo from Cozumel, however, squeaked one out over an image of Mamora Bay in Antigua to grab this week’s crown. It must have been the palm trees that did it and if that’s so, who can blame them for voting the way they did? After all,...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Long Bay, Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Tagged: , , ,

This week’s beach pic of the week, taken on Long Bay on the island of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, is an exquisite representation of what many of us love about the Caribbean. With unspoiled beaches, palms guarding the shore and the ocean your only soundtrack, it’s an escape from the real world and its hectic requirements. Your inner Robinson Crusoe it allowed to sneak out, if only for a short time, and offer respite from...

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,...
