Palm trees just having something calming about them.  It might be the gentle swish of the leaves in the breeze or the sparseness of leaves at the bottom, or maybe it’s both, who knows.  They’re just one of those things that everyone imagines when they hear the word “vacation.”  I saw plenty in Central America and accumulated my fair share of pictures of them as well.  It may even be a bit excessive the number I have, but that is perfectly fine with me.  I mean, they are nice to look at, after all.

After almost two months home, I’m actually starting to miss beaches a little bit.  I’m not a huge fan of water, but I do enjoy beaches and they just aren’t the same around here.  Nothing beats a good book, a little bit of sun, and a nice ocean breeze.  Sometimes, you’ll even be lucky enough to make a dog friend or two.

A walk down the beach can turn into a climb down the beach too if you find one bent just right, which can lead to all new adventures.  Note for future palm tree climbing though: it’s not as easy as I think.  And hold on.  It also helps to not be afraid of heights because it seems a lot higher once you are on it.  They also add a little shade in the scorching heat, which is always nice.
