Top 10 Favorite Travel Photos of 2013 – #7

10 countries and countless cities made it on my 2013 Bucket List. France, Dominican Republic, Bermuda, Jordan, Aruba, Curacao, Canada, USA, Mexico, and Fiji were all part of my whirlwind of adventures and new experiences. I never envisioned such an amazing year of opportunity; my life continues to be a dream come true. I am blessed. Some people create a bucket list because they are dying; I created one because I want to live.

Here are my top ten favorite travel photos from 2013.

Number 7 - Pink Shell Beach Resort, Florida

Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina, Florida

Situated on 1,500 feet of sugary white sand at the tip of Fort Myers Beach, Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina looks like a postcard.

Have you been to Florida? What are your favorite Florida beach destinations?

the last photo was a sporting destination and this is more relaxation; which do you prefer? Relaxing or adventure?

  1. Beautiful photograph!
    I used to live in Florida and this just remined me of the wonderful beaches there! I haven’t been able to explore that many, but I remember Barefoot Beach in Naples being my favorite – always calm and with barely anyone about. It was where I first started my collection of butterfly shells. :)

  2. I wouldn’t be too fussed on Naples Lesley, it’s not the nicest place in the world. But if you want to see Pompeii then its worth it, I would stay in Sorrento nearby though, that’s nice.

    • I was in South Beach before but only for a day and not with my daughter. Maybe we could make our way down for a long weekend trip before the end of the year. Do you have a hotel recommendation?

        • Thanks for the suggestion. We’re going to South Carolina this weekend for a visit to Kiawah Island Golf Resort, but when I get back I’ll start looking into it :)

          Have you ever been to South Carolina?

          • I try to view at least one post and comment every time someone comments on my blog; I’m going to run out of posts from you lol

            Thanks for all the support. I truly appreciate it.

            I just shared one of your posts on Twitter but I noticed it is not linked to your account. Do you use Twitter?

          • That’s great Lesley. I have been following your example and doing the same for others. Twitter is on the to do list.
            Thanks for sharing my post!

  3. I grew up in Ft. Myers and, in fact, have stayed at the Pink Shell though I must confess it was quite different at the time. I love the west coast of Florida.

  4. I have to say I was entranced by Key West, crowded as it was. So quaint and touristy, yet calming. Mallory Square at sunset was a treat. And eating at Backyard Louie’s, outside, with that view. Of course I went just to see Hemingway’s house…

  5. Beautiful photo – looks like it belongs on a post card!
    I really envy your life! It’s my dream to travel one day and you’re making it a reality – it’s so inspirational and I love following your blog and your journey :) xx

  6. Definitely putting this destination on my bucket list for 2014 for Dave and I. Looks absolutely tranquil. And still in the states – don’t think I will ever get him to go abroad.

  7. I’ve never spent anytime on Florida beaches, just admired them from the deck of a cruise ship pulling in or out of port at Ft Lauderdale or Miami! This looks like a place I could go and sink my toes in the sand!! I can’t get enough of the turquoise water. Here in Delaware, the ocean looks green. :( I remember how blue the Atlantic was sailing from Europe until we got 20 miles from the US coastline, when the water turned green and stayed that way all the way up the Delaware bay, through the C&D canal and into the Chesapeake.

  8. my thoughts on which ive seen of ur Photos that is, this past year, Fav is Ur Youngster an U at the Dolphin Park…..adios frum Q…take care…. & keep on keepin on yep yep…

  9. Nice shot, the blue umbrella really makes it stand out!
    I grew up in Florida, Johns Pass. I used to love Sunset Beach, Ft DeSoto Park, Madeira Beach.
    Florida is completely surrounded by beautiful beaches, they all have something to offer. :-)

  10. I went to Florida several times, love Sanibel and Captiva Island. I recommend to rent a private house at Cape Coral with pool and boat and then floating with your boat over the Caloosahatchee River until you reach the Ocean, watching pelicans, manatees and dolphins (if you are lucky) :-) Greetings, SASA
