Relaxing on a Deserted Island

Last week I left off after telling you about the first part of our sailing trip – two snorkel stops and exploring a pretty beach. But there’s still so much left in our day! After we leave the beach, we have roughly an hour long boat ride to our next stop – a deserted island. I’m…

Sailing Takes Me Away

Ahhh sailing. You’re the best. Well, more specifically in this case, boating. It’s not really a sailboat. Which is a good thing, because we’re going around the entire island today, and a sailboat may take awhile.

It’s time to dive under the sea! I’ve been undecided on how to share photos taken on 10 different dives with you. I have nearly two-thousand pictures split between my trusty GoPro and my new Canon D30 waterproof camera. Our dive master Fernando, called me the paparazzi. Yep, I sneakily stalk fish and other sea creatures in…

Caribbean Vibes in West End

I know you probably won’t believe me when I tell you this, but it’s been almost a year since I’ve had a real vacation. I’m really looking forward to a few weeks off in Central America. I have done quite a bit of traveling this year, but some of it was for work and the rest was…
