It had to be done…

Wednesday 27 February 2013

For those of us in the midst of a dark, cold, desolate, relentless and unforgiving winter, my sincerest apologies for this post but it had to be done. I had all but forgotten what a beach and sunshine looked like until Tripadvisor published their “Best Beaches” list. You would be forgiven for thinking the pictures below are from some far-flung sun-soaked Caribbean island (I did) – but the pictures in fact depict Rabbit Beach on the island of Lampedusa, just off the cost of Sicily.

People of the Northern Hemisphere, don’t worry, the time is nigh…

  1. Meghan, this is just plain brutal!

  2. OMG - that water is amazing! The only water we have today is coming from the sky in buckets... but these images cheered us up real quick!
    C + C

  3. Wow. That water is stunning. I'm dreaming! :)

  4. Oh, I am dreaming about soaking up some sun on that beach and cool of in the water. The last photo is amazing and makes me want to dive right in...I want summer now!

  5. Oh that water is so blue!!! I love and need to see something like this right now as we are socked in with yucky rain. Thank you!

  6. Oh my goodness, that last shot is magic! Although it's beautiful and warm and perfect swimming weather here, we're all a bit spooked, as a swimmer was killed by a shark yesterday in shallow waters. It's very rare for a fatal shark attack here in NZ, and I'll be paranoid next time Mark goes surfing. The kids and I will stick to the swimming pool :) x
