While at Divi Little Bay Resort in Saint Maarten Nether Antilles saw this beautiful sand sculpture of a mother turtle in front of her egg nest.  Nicely done by the artist. I’ve not post processed this image because for once I didn’t cart along my iMac.  Just brought the iPad, iPhone, and big arsed camera.  I didn’t have the camera so ok this with my iPad for a test run.   Several days later I’ve finally been able to upload the image.  It late evening aboard the Smitten Kitten catamaran again with Stuart and Jenny.  I finally have wi-fi that will allow me to post.Read More →

I always long to be near the ocean to watch the waves roll in and then reach a full crest before they fold into each other.   It was nearing sunset and the crest of the wave was lit still with sunlight while the tide closest to me had reached dusk. To me it’s the definition of serene. Weekly Photo Challenge – SerenityRead More →

Make sure to do ample research before you book your holiday destination. Don’t rely on their website or pictures. We thought we would be at the far end of hotel strip in Cancun. We are at a little quiet resort on Pok-Ta-Pok  Ave which is roughly a 20 minute taxi. This picture is at the Westin. Wish I were there. But in defense of our little resort… The room is nice. Pool is clean. Everything is very clean. The staff is friendly. And the F&B prices very reasonable. Coral Mar is perfect for a quiet get away. It all depends on what you are lookingRead More →

The Rush of Humanity:   We are like ants streaming forth from the proverbial piles searching for the known, unknown, youth and droll. We take to the streets and beaches reaching for miles following patterns in an ant-like rush to reach our goal. Posted as part of the Weekly Photo Challenge – HumanityRead More →

Great vacations for us usually start with a long trip from airport to airport and then a little recovery time. This one was that with a little added exaggeration which I will explain later. We started with a red-eye flight out of Phoenix, connecting at JFK and then arriving in St. Thomas USVI the next day. When this is our flight choice we like to add a one day hotel stay before going on to the catamaran for our sailing trip. It also helps to adjust to the time zones changes… somewhat… After arriving at the hotel, we enjoyed a lovely walk along the beachesRead More →

Enjoying another extra vacation here at the beautiful beaches of Aruba. Went off for a Sunset Sail on the Pelican catamaran which was much more than expected. The first extra, the captain and mates accompanied the music with bar equipment for drums and the other ladies on board went extra out of their way to attempt to teach me and Britt how to do the slide. Sorry, nothing helped. After we enjoyed a splendid dinner at the Pelican Restaurant overlooking the ocean. Great Food. None of these pictures have had any editing.Read More →
