Helpless Against the Pull Of The Sea – Photo Friday

With Caribbean waters radiating vivid blues, not man, nor women, nor palm tree can resist the allure of a plunge.

The sand and sea of Seven Mile Beach on the island of Grand Cayman has that effect on most. Tugging and grabbing at you, seducing you with its stunning looks and soothing touch. Who are we to resist. Not me.

True, this palm might have started life on a crooked path, perhaps blown side ways by the relentless trades. But the romantic in me likes to think that it is helpless, just like us, to the calling of Caribbean.

    Face it Ryan. You’re just inches away from trading in your Rum for a dirty martini and the Castaway visor for a black Beret. You’ll be smoking cloves before you know it!
