2009 Cottage Vacation

It's been awhile since I updated this blog (again), but I'm not as far behind as it might seem. I've been editing photo's like crazy over the last month and I've actually even been uploading them to the galleries on this site as I go through them. Some of you have even found them and commented about it! But I realize that posting them to the blog makes them much easier to view, so I will be making a new post for each album as well. The commentary will be light, so the images will have to speak for themselves! I will be starting with about 8 … Continue Reading ››

We awoke to a beautiful sunrise on our final day in Jamaica and I got to enjoy it by walking down the beach with Andrew in the Stroller. Again.

There was plenty of room to enter the cavern through the crack, and then leave through the wall on … Continue Reading ››

Blast from the Past

We were trying to remember when we went on our first dive vacation and discovered that it was exactly 9 years prior (to the week) to our recent trip to Jamaica. That trip was to the Bird Rock Beach hotel in St. Kitts to visit my brother Ian. He was running the diving operations at the hotel and we managed to mooch off him for a week of free diving. We also charged all of our food and drinks to his room so that we could get his staff discount. It was an amazing week of diving and we had a great time. I … Continue Reading ››
