The wet spring left me longing for warmer days and sunshine. My mind wandered to a few tropical vacations I have been on in the past. Did you know that there are actually over 700 islands and cays in The Bahamas? Around 30 of these are inhabited. The Bahamas are known for their beautiful clear waters and stellar beaches. With these fun facts of a beautiful tourist area, I found some photos for some inspiration for this month color challenge.
After looking for these inspiration photos, I decided to pull out some photos from our cruise in 2010. The palm trees, the lounge chairs and the turquoise waters were all I needed to look at to be reminded of the warm, ok hot, memories of The Bahamas. When I created my page, I pulled out some browns and woods as well. These browns remind me of the sandy beaches we visited and the wooden decks of the resort in the inspiration photos.
