Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Somewhere in the Maldives

Tagged: ,

I don’t know where this beach is in Maldives (or “the Maldives” if you prefer). As with most pictures shared on sites such as Unsplash and Pixabay, exact geographical locations are rarely given. In this case, the photographer simply said it was in the Maldives and I don’t think anything else matters. Seriously, with that view, who cares? A long stretch of white sand beach with a seemingly endless line of palm trees acting as the...

When it came to picking their favorite “beach pic of the day” post this week, the followers of my Facebook page made this image of a beach in Barbados the runaway winner.

The water, as it is elsewhere in the Caribbean, was marvelously blue and the sand as soft and white as you would expect...

If you asked most people you know to tell you where Sardinia was, the vast majority of them would have no idea. They might recognize images of the colorful buildings that dot its landscape but put a map in front of them and they’d be bewildered as a deer in headlights. For the uninitiated, it’s in the Mediterranean. In fact, it’s the second largest island in the sea. Part of Italy, Sardinia may not be well known to...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Dunedin, Florida

Tagged: , ,

There’s just something about a Florida sunset over that water that makes it hard to resist. This week’s image, taken in Dunedin, is further proof of that. The palm trees form the perfect silhouette, boaters meander through the calm water and as the sun dips below the horizon for another day, people take time out of their busy lives to appreciate the moment. That’s one of the most significant wonders of a sunset...
