Miles Away From Ordinary – Photo Friday

What would you give to be the happy folks in this photo? One hundred dollars? One thousand dollars? An arm, maybe a leg?

When I see a photo like today’s Photo Friday picture I slump back in my chair and groan.  Sure I live 5 minutes from the beach, but our water doesn’t look anything like that. It’s more of a deep green and is rarely crystal clear. I may be splitting hairs here but that’s what I want, that’s what I long for. I long for the bluest waters in the world, the whitest sands and that all important cold drink in my hand.

If you are in search of your own Corona commercial, this one was taken on Grace Bay Beach – Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

Have a great weekend Castaways.




  1. Agreed man; I live where most people would consider paradise (just across the alley from you) and still long for the ideal Caribbean life. Though I do love and appreciate my life here as well. Been here my entire life and still haven’t became jaded or failed to appreciate where I live. Slainte!

    Ryan, how did you make out with the contest? I’ve been away for a week with no computer access and when I went on today to vote, it was closed. Although I am dedicated to my STJ blogs, you’re still the guy I go to for covering the rest of the Caribbean, so you’re always a winner in my book! Have a great week-end and keep that elbow bent!
