There is something to be said about beach life and now that summer has officially arrived, people are flocking to beaches everywhere by the millions. It's an annual happening for many, including yours truly.
Just hanging out, smelling the salt in the air and watching the clouds go by. There is just something relaxing about the sights and sounds of life on the shoreline, particularly in the tropics.
Well it's back to reality after a wonderful week in Aruba, the Dutch island that is part of the Netherlands Antilles. Aruba was settled in 1636 and many say that the weather hasn't changed since it's discovery.
We arrived to somewhat high winds, which persisted for most of the week with some breaks here and there but it was an amazingly pleasant visit. Most of my time was spent on the beach or in the gigantic hotel pool...
Welcome back, my friends! The past week has been filled with fun and travel while away on vacation. We landed in the Bahamas and made our way over to Paradise Island where we are staying. The weather is spectacular, thanks to the dissipation of what was once tropical storm Dorian, which fizzled out long before reaching the islands.
Needless to say, I have been shooting lots of images and will be posting many of them in the weeks ahead. Today I wanted to share one of the very first images I created during our first morning here.

This 6:20 am shot was taken while I was out on a morning walk along the shoreline. Somewhat surprisingly, you can walk for fairly long distances during these early morning hours and encounter few people. That all changes by mid-morning as tourist and vacationers come out to enjoy this wonderful environment.
Thanks so much for visiting!
