Good Morning All,
This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.
So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.
You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.
For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.
Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!
Today, pictures from valued commenter Lee.

Thank you so much Lee, do send us more when you can.
And now some great pictures from The Antibob.
The Antibob and May in Curacao.
Health considerations of a fellow traveler required that we forego our beloved St. John, which is still recovering from the last hurricane season. Curacao is a lovely Dutch island with a refreshingly small percentage of American tourists. Snorkeling is somewhat lacking compared to USVI, but the diving is excellent. If you are a diver or would like to learn, I highly recommend Diver’s Republic at Playa Daai Booi. The proprietor Bob Van Ingen is a great instructor who took me from the Discovery lesson- where I thought I was going to die breathing through the regulator at 2 meters- to Advanced Certifications down to 40 meters after 14 dives. The beaches, reef and people here are wonderful here, and even the wildlife is friendly, as you can see in the pictures. (Photos by May)

Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.
