Far Far Away
Heron Island, Australia
We went on a trip to New Zealand and Australia a few years back and fell in love with all of it…and it’s all islands out there! Even Australia is a big island! (Size of U.S. big)
The picture above is from our room on an amazing little island called Heron Island on the Great Barrier Reef! I’ll be doing a Travel Tale about Australia soon.
A Little Closer
The Caribbean is just around the corner, and the islands there are some of the best anywhere. We loved a place in Jamaica called FDR. It’s the most incredible island resort for families there is! Parents and kids…HAPPY!
The rooms at this place were beautiful and looked out over the sea. Jamaica is just a wonderful place overall. We love it!
You don’t need a passport for this one! It would be fun to see who could guess where this is. But then I couldn’t tell you, and I want to tell you that this place is an easy drive for you if you’re in the US or Canada!
This is Bahia Honda State Park in the Florida Keys! It really looks just like this! It’s wonderful, amazing, and in the US! For those of you going on a road trip…it makes a great destination for camping in a tent or RV.
Just don’t go during a hurricane!
A Short Boat Ride
This is the image that adorns the desktop on my computer. This is AJ, looking totally too big and strong, wakeboarding behind our boat right around the corner at Cayo Costa State Park. This is an incredible island only accessible by boat. It’s usually pretty well deserted!
And just down the beach a couple of islands south is famous Captiva Island and the Mucky Duck! Here is Jacob thrilled with his success with the “ring-on-a-string-you-gotta-swing-it-onto-a-hook-game”! He’s the champ!
So We’re Hooked
Yup, we’re hooked for sure, just as hooked as that ring on a string. Worse things we could be hooked on I guess! Head over to Hooked On Houses to see what everyone else is hooked on this week!
And, I’m Hooked on Islands at Remodeling Guy too, just a different kind of island. You can eat at either kind, so that’s good.
So, we have many, many islands left to see and we need some help….where should we go? What is your favorite island?
