Travel Theme: Beaches

Ah, beaches, one our most beloved vacation spots and most popular places to live. But when we think of beaches, ok when I think of beaches I think of white sandy beaches, ocean breezes and flowing waves. So I’ve decided to explore some a-typical beaches. Not all have sandy beaches or beautiful waves and only one has ocean breezes.

This is one of my favorite spots along the Keeweenaw Penisula on Lake Superior, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

While this is a beach I wouldn’t want to swim here, although some people do. The smell is atrocious. Beach at the Great Salt Lake, Utah


When is a beach not a beach? There’s sand and surf but this beach is man-made. Aquatic’s wave pool, Orlando, Florida

Is this a beach? Is this a road? Is this a parking lot?  YUP. Daytona beach, Florida, where anything goes (at least before Sandy)…The only entry located on the ocean.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Bridges (1)

I love bridges, love photographing them, but this hasn’t always been true. I spent most of my adult life in fear of them. I would either avoid them or have an anxiety attack if I had to drive over one. During my 2-year road trip I had more than enough opportunities to overcome that fear. Eventually I found myself driving over them, then turning around and driving over it again, then again. It was exciting to have overcome that fear. Needless to say I had to not only cut many photos from this challenge but I’ve decided to create two entries. The First are the bridges we drive over, of concrete and steel. Tomorrow I’ll cover those made of stone and wood.

Seven Mile Bridge, Somewhere In the Florida Keys

This was actually taken a few years before my long road trip, and yes I actually drove the entire 90 miles to Key West and yes I was full of anxiety. But I did it afraid and that’s what matters!
