My Adventure last week…
This beautiful private beach was on Tortola – look how blue the water is. The beach sand was so white…I’ve never experienced anything like it! The shadows you see in the picture are schools of fish.
And check this beautiful house of Flowers I snapped on the catamaran on the way to Tortola. Was the prettiest house I saw my entire vacation – its, probably the flowers! Could you imagine living here and looking out to see those blue waters? Sigh….one can dream?
These photo’s were taken of the Glacier Caves at Mangrove Island. After exploring this beautiful cave – we went kayaking through the mangrove rain forest. We didn’t bring our camera because we worried about getting it wet – but afterwards wished we had because it was one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve ever had.
Look at the roots of the Mangrove trees coming down from the opening of this cave.
This was the “old lookout point” where the islanders used to watch for ships coming to close to the island…what a beautiful job to have to do!?!
This is “Bird Island”……I was a little disappointed as I thought we’d get off the boat and explore the island and see colorful birds – nope we boated right past it and only saw pelicans……100’s of pelicans!
But we did get to go to Coral Beach in St. Thomas where their was a zoo – I was able to see everything tropical that lived in the wild on these islands.
Most of these animals were rescued and being rehabilitated – some get to return to the wild, the permanently injured ones are kept here for their own protection.
One amazing “bucket list” adventures was going on an airboat through the Everglades. We had not planned on doing so – but the opportunity came when we had an extra day in Miami! Below is what we were so lucky to capture.
Snapped these photo’s while we had breakfast on the outdoor patio in Miami! Gorgeous!
Thanks for peeking at my adventure I was on last week – once in a lifetime experience for me and so happy to share it with you all!
Linking this post to Cottage Flora Thursday!

Greetigs from holland and have a nice weekend,
You rode on one of those air boat things??? No way!

I am so jealous!
And in answer to your question, I live up close to the Canadian border north of Bellingham. We actually lived in the Kirkland/Bothell area just off Juanita Drive for 6 years back when my 23 year old daughter was a baby. For years we didn't spend much time in the Seattle area but then my daughter went to UW from 2006 until last June so I got to spend a lot of time in and around Seattle... although I love where I live I miss some of the opportuntites that are in a big city!
