"Somewhere on a warm sunny sandy beach" toemayn's Profile


Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go
My pretty mama and I love the tropical beaches. At least once a year we escape the cold Midwest winter to say Jamaica, Dominican Rep., Mexico. In the spring or fall it's off to the FL gulf coast.

Wife Sheila

Her #1 travel spot is Jamaica so that's why I go there a lot she'll go to other beaches but prefers one with a sunset.

Dreams LaRomana, Dominican Republic

The best all round beach resort I've been to. Even has a good sunset something a bit rare for a beach in the D.R. Also the wind was light no red flag days all green, unlike Punta Cana or the Riveria Maya.

Best/Clearest water

Costa Esmeralda, Sardinia, Italy where Bond, James Bond, in The Spy Who Loved Me was filmed. The clearest salt water I've ever seen was near Caladi Volpe, at Romazzina Beach, that's where the submarine car drove off the pier.

My daughter, Kim

Rather than go it alone I sometimes take my daughter with me when I travel .

2 of my kids with all the grand kids

Grand kids L>R Kristen, Hayden, Tyler, Eric, & Matthew and Kim has the another one in the oven.

Newest Beach babe

Arayah, like her mom and grandma loves the beach picture is of Indian Rocks Beach, FL ( awsome sunsets )

Hugh, Jackie and I

Hugh and I share a "Big" sis. Hugh and sis had the same mom sis and I the same dad. I finally got to meet him in 04/2006. Hugh and sis has another brother Gary hope to met him one day too. Hugh and sis still live in Oregon.
