Travel Time?

Travel Time?

In many ways, the change from summer to fall is very welcomed. Sure, the shorter days aren't ideal. But, the crisp temperatures, changing leaves, bigger and better swell, and most of all, less crowds on the beach and in the water, make the negative parts of the season worth it.

Even though the change is novel for now, I'm sure it'll get old once the season really sets in (especially when the clock changes.) Now is the time to start thinking about booking a winter escape.

Where is your favorite warmer water? Central America? Hawaii? Australia? Indo? The Caribbean? Or that secret spot that you’re keeping quiet for just you and your closest friends?

Here are a few photos from past trips of mine. I hope to be able to swing a trip or two between now and next summer. Until I figure out if that'll work out or not, I can look at old photos and dream.
