This was such a cool church to visit in the Bahamas. I couldn't believe that something like this from the 17th century was still standing there.
However...does anyone know if it's still standing after the last two hurricanes? Long Island got hit pretty hard.
One of the Bahamas' oldest churches, built by the Spanish over 200 years ago and quickly falling to the elements.

Topple hoodoos...graffiti ancient rocks...walk on geysers...expect to pay the price!
Jail time, sure, whatever. But being banned from our parks for five years - ouch!

Pretty much all of my friends think I'm on some kind of vacation when I go #sailing. Far from it! It's tough, dirty, tiring work...but worth it in the end.
Here's my own realities of it - anything to add?
Cruising on a small sailboat isn't the glamorous vacation that some people think it is. It's dirty, hard work with no sleep. But totally worth it.

Water filters can add unwanted ounces for backpackers trying to lighten their load - here are a few options for getting fresh water without breaking your back.
For those backpackers wishing to shed ounces from their pack, it's time to ditch the pump-type filters. Here are three lightweight water treatment options.

Reef early and often! My priorities for reasons doing so are pretty much the same as in this article: crew comfort, performance, and less fatigue on the gear.

Reefing: how, when and why do we do it? The answers may not be as straightforward as you think, says James Jermain

My favorite time to photograph is during bad weather. Unfortunately, this is also the worst time to have your camera out!
Follow these steps to keep it dry and get those awesome shots - don't fear the weather!

I wrote down pretty much the same thoughts when I decided to sell it all and go sailing six years ago. Seems a lot of people these days are coming to the same conclusions. Why the shift?
If I've confirmed one thing in 2016, it's that the Standard American Life Experience is not for me. I began packing up and selling off parts of the America Dream back in 2011.

Introduction
I'm an internationally published photographer and author who has called Lake Tahoe home for 25 years (okay, I was gone for ten of those while flying in the Air Force).
I'm an avid hiker and love exploring the Sierra Nevadas and sharing its beauty with you.  I'm also an avid sailor, and spend a good chunk of the year on my 27-foot sailboat, sailing around the Caribbean and sharing those experiences as well.

I have to agree with Mark's review - Bob and his team are outstanding and I can't imagine diving with anyone else in the Dominican Republic.
