Escaping into a Caribbean Sunset – Photo Friday

Your body sways back and forth as the catamaran dances on top of the gentle waves of Plilsbury Sound. With St. John behind you, Lovango Cay to the north and St. Thomas in front, the only way to escape is to sail south in to the vast Caribbean blue.  But escape isn’t what you had in mind. Dropping anchor and stopping time is the only thing that matters in the entire world at this given second.

With a cold rum drink in hand and the sun falling from the western sky, life is perfectly perfect. I’m sure that’s what was going through the minds of the lucky people on the Scubadu Catamaran in this fantastic photograph.

Nothing quite beats a Caribbean sunset. We have some pretty good ones here in southwest Florida. People gather nightly to watch the sun slip under the Gulf of Mexico, but it’s missing something. It’s missing the steep hills and distant islands. These characters spice up the nightly show, giving the sun’s last rays something to bounce off of and pleasure our eyes with.

Next time you find yourself in a situation where you’re surrounded by saintly islands, the sky is turning orange and the world seems to stand still, take a big sip of that rum drink and smile. Why? Stop and take a look around you, because escape is exactly what you wanted, and found.

    Absolutely beautiful! It is a dark, grey, very blustery day here, and this was just the little escape I needed. 🙂
