Caye Caulker Harbor

Two Different Harbors

It’s about time I post photos for Twitter’s #FriFotos challenge.  This week’s theme is HARBORS.  I’ve picked a couple of harbors that probably couldn’t more different from one another. Seward, Alaska – Small Boat Harbor Seward happens to be one of the ice free ports in Alaska and because of that stays busy year-round, but […]

How I Improved the Quality of my Underwater Photos

I’ve mentioned before that I have an Olympus Stylist Tough 8010 for underwater photography.  While the photos have always been a great source of memories for me, they have never been great quality.  I worried that I had purchased the wrong underwater camera when I compared my photos to some of the photos published by […]

Tasty and Interesting Foods I Ate in Belize

And travel includes a lot of new and loved food experiences.  I already told you about our lobster feasts and traditional Belizean Stewed Chicken yumminess, but I actually ate some other interesting and great tasting dishes in […]
