Random, quirky, not technically correct, overlooked, whatev. But still beautiful moments. In my mind at least.
The truth is I have a massive collection of photos (I’m talking several thousand) that somehow never found a home here on the blog. Sad, but true. Unfortunately, is the pitiful result of taking WAY waaaaayyyyyy too many photos on the regular and then carelessly overlooking some real gems. These “temporarily forgotten” photos are some of the moments I don’t ever want to forget. So I decided to pull out a few new favs that I’d rather not lose to the deep dark digital hole forever. Here they are. A few oldies, but goodies from our island hopping ways over the past few months.
Okay, I think this one actually made facebook, but never the blog. Strange.
Another of fav of jereme diving David Copperfield’s stainless steel piano sculpture in the Exumas. Such the merman.
Heeeellllooooooo paradise! From our favorite spot in all of the Bahamas…Long Island. #iwannagoback
In the middle of nowhere without a care in the world. #thisisthelife
Catching mahi in the rain. Hence the (waterproof) GoPro photo. I’m obviously trying to stay dry tucked under the dodger because clearly our bimini is one big sieve.
Loading in the (very important) valuables before we left Naples.
Sunrise departure for our 1st Gulf Stream crossing to the B-A-H-A-M-A-S!!!
Reeling in our first “real” catch + keeper…a mutton snapper!
Life aboard is just plain pretty.
Cruise ship territory at the northern tip of the Berries.
Luckily, they were all anchored so we just squeezed right on by in front of them as we rounded the tip of Great Harbour Cay. ;))
I am sure a shark will join us momentarily. They always do.
This poodle definitely LOVES the beach.
“us-ies” on the other side of Long Island.
Hello Mr. Grouper, so good to see you!
Our very first mahi!
It was a blood bath.
Smiling because I am blissfully unaware that I am mere minutes from almost-drowning in the Land + Sea Park. Lol.
The Land + Sea Park in Warderick Wells, Exumas. We SOOOO wanted a tour of that first boat on the left. It was awesome-looking in person.
Look closely. Double rainbow.
Holy lobster haul. #wishitwasours
$300…the cost of Rx sunglasses lost in the anchorage one night in Blackpoint. Miracuously recovering them the next morning by snorkeling behind the dinghy…PRICELESS! Even Oliver is thrilled.
Cute little sun flares like this just make me happy.
Just loving life.
Kicking back after an awesome engagement proposal on my birthday at Cape Santa Maria Resort, Bahamas. Still reeling from that four months later!!!
I’ll never get sick of these views.
…If you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain!
He would not leave that white starfish alone for anything. You gotta look closely.
Two rainy days in Conception Island, followed by this insanely gorg day! #closesttoshorewehaveeveranchored
The empty baby conchs that littered Mayaguana beaches. #pleasedontemailushatemailthinkingweharvestedthese
I still say these coral graveyard photos are going up in large format prints or canvases in a future home of ours. I LOVE them!
Boats are just pretty.
Parking lot lobstahs!
Pretty Puerto Rico!
The end of my photo dump. For now.
