Blue Caribbean

gentle readers..

I have not forgotten you.. 
but I did take some much needed time to 
rest and relax with 

which was wonderful..
spending time with daughters and their family
and watching grandkids have 
wonderful experiences..

 The Caribbean is so close to us here in
Florida and it is one of our favorite places to visit..
there is something so peaceful about the color 

and my camera cannot take it all in...
but I wanted to share as much of it with you as I can..

We traveled to 
Grand Cayman, Cozumel and Jamaica..

and soaked up as much sun and blue
water as possible...

we found lovely spots on the islands
to rent a chair, 
and swim and soak..

we ate octopus ceviche and guacamole..
and many had
drinks that involve
tiny paper umbrella's... 

Azure, slate blue, robins egg, aqua, marine, royal... too many colors to name.. 

In Cozumel
we found a lovely spot..

with so many coconut palms to grant shade...

is also teeming with blue color..
the depth of the water and the light change
the perception..

a divine palate of spectacular blues..

we took a cabin at the back of the ship 
this time, which afforded us a really long deck and gave us
splendid opportunities
for photos..

stunning, right??

but perhaps my favorite island is 
Grand Cayman..

We have been there before, and certainly we will be back..

The beach at 7Mile Beach is gorgeous...
creamy colored sand that has a wonderful texture..
very hard to explain..

the water is pristine..
and the facility is quite good..

with a lovely restaurant..
overlooking the beach 
and the rented chairs and umbrellas, you can
just take two steps up to the bar and order a drink 
or if you prefer the pool,
you can swim up to the bar..

as you can see,
it was a glorious day..

and someone left me a love note..

and he took this shot too.. 

but all good things
nothing came to stay
all things pass away..

but even when the sun sets..

the one thing that remains ..

that gorgeous 
Caribbean blue..

so I am off to the studio..
to prep for my video..
and I am anxious to get back to work..

Looks amazing! Those blues are incredible aren't they? I once lived in Key West and the water was my touchstone.

Glad you are back! We missed you!

I had intended to stop by earlier, but time has not been kind to me this month. So, playing catch up is the name of the game.

I can't believe all those blues. It was amazing. So many colors, so many beautiful photos, so many expressive words. I was simply taken away on this same cruise with you and felt the beauty of the islands you experienced. It was a blue heaven.

Hey Blogoratti, so nice to have you stop by! Thanks so much and you are so very right!! ;)

Caterina Giglio said...

Hi Roberta, wow, Key West is so fun, how lovely that you had the chance to live there, and while I adore our beaches, it is so nice to get away...

Caterina Giglio said...

I agree, Mary Ann, YES to blue!!

Caterina Giglio said...
