A Word A Week Photo Challenge by A Word In Your Ear has selected one of my favourite topics for this week: Islands! Don’t get me wrong….I am a huge fan of winter! But today, on groundhog day, I am excited to hear that 2 out of 3 of the groundhogs in the know have voted for an early spring! As I look out the window at the blanket of white, I daydream of warmer places and island vacations come to mind!
Below is a collection of island shots from around the world….a momentary winter escape if you will!
Barbados (check out the turtle photos at Turtle Cruise with Silver Moon – these guys are pretty cute!)
If the Caribbean isn’t your thing….check out these European islands:
Vis, Croatia (Related Link: Paradise found in Vis, Croatia)
Mallorca, Spain – we always go there to cycle…one of these days I will make it for the beach!
And a personal favourite…Australia…the world’s biggest island! This photo was taken Cycling Australia’s Great Ocean Road….takes my breath away!
The word a week photo challenge is hosted by A Word In Your Ear….
“As many of you know once a week I dip into my Old English Dictionary and pick a word that the page falls open on. The challenge is to post a blog on what that word means to you. Most people take a photograph but if you want to write a short story or poem we welcome any genre. Please link back to this post in your blog so others can follow the thread and take part or read other entries.”
