Not just one…but 20 Caribbean beach bars!

I know, I know…I have a bit of a thing for beach bars. I can’t help it. I love them. It’s probably the view more than anything else…I’m a sucker for a great view. Of course, a good rum punch is always a plus. In any event, I have to share this Yahoo Travel article which brings us not one, but twenty beach bars on twenty gorgeous beaches… My new goal is to visit every one of them as soon as possible. If you get there first, order me a rum punch…

I’d rather be surfing?

Enjoyed this great Huffington Post article this morning on life lessons surfing teaches you. I’ve always been slightly intrigued by the idea of surfing, but have never quite worked up the guts to try it. If I did, I’m sure I could write a lengthy article entitled ‘The 120 Most Humiliating Ways to Fall Off a Surfboard and Live to Tell About It’. Plus, I’ve seen Soul Surfer. There is no story more inspiring than Betthany Hamilton’s. Betthany’s story of incredible triumph over disaster has inspired millions, myself included, but come on…knowing what could be lurking unseen in the water below you might be what separates the men (surfers) from the boys (non-surfers) here. In any event, the lessons suggested in the article are sound and the comparison to surfing is clever. Plus, from a health standpoint, surfing contributes to a healthy bikini body in that it’s an excellent workout for most all major muscle groups, encourages balance and promotes stamina. All great reasons to try it. I haven’t given my kids a good laugh in a while…maybe the next time at the beach is the time to learn to surf!

Louis Vuitton America’s Cup in Bermuda!

Don’t know what your plans are for October 16-18, but if you can manage to get yourself to beautiful Bermuda, you can watch the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series in person. If you can’t manage to be there, at least you need to look at the website for no other reason than the pictures are gorgeous (as are most pictures that involve Louis Vuitton and sailing…) and you can keep up with what’s going with the race and who the teams are, etc. You can follow them on Twitter here:
