“Let us not bankrupt our todays by paying interest on the regrets of yesterday and by borrowing in advance the troubles of tomorrow.” – Ralph W. Sockman
I love visiting new places. I enjoy finding new sights and sounds that I have never seen before. I think this is because I didn’t travel that much when I was younger. I really only saw the same couple of places every year. There were a few exceptions to this. I can’t say my parents didn’t take me anywhere, but I never left the country until I was in my thirties. Now I have traveled more in the last 5 years than I have in most of my life. A few years ago, we invested in a small travel trailer that we have used to visit different parts of the country. My family even convinced me to bring our cats with us when we travel. We have also taken a couple of cruises to different parts of Latin America. We are hoping to travel even more as the pandemic starts to lighten up, we are hoping to be able to travel even more. One advantage of being a teacher is that I am able to take advantage of the school breaks I get throughout the year, and that gives me opportunities to travel more.
I took these photos back during spring break of 2019. We visited a place called Starfish Island. We stopped by here after we had met some sting rays. Here you could pick up different starfish as long as you left them in the water. I didn’t get any good shots of them because I was too nervous to have my camera near the water. I did, however, get these shots of the iguana and a butterfly. One of my favorite things to do while visiting new places is to just explore on my own. I found these guys while I was exploring the island on my own while my family finished eating lunch.
