Playa de los Muertos

I have never seen water this clear in my life.

This is Playa de los Muertos.

Playa de los Muertos quite literally means the Beach of the Dead.

Perhaps it holds that name because visitors think they’ve died and gone to heaven . . .

BUT LOOK! . . . A sign of life!

Maybe it was given that name because of the trek to get to the actual beach . . .

. . . I only fell once 😂

Seriously, the beach is GORGEOUS and worth it but it’s a downhill trek so make sure you’re wearing solid shoes as it’s a bit rocky. (I was not prepared.) The beach itself is all pebbles as well, so keep that in mind if you plan on visiting!

I still can’t get over how clear the water was. #MediterraneanLife

So, where does the name Playa de los Muertos really come from? 

Apparently, its name comes from the many sailors who perished in the seas and washed up here.  At least it’s a beautiful place to die . . .  👻

An Ode to Small Towns

Lake George, NY – Just a 2.5 hour drive from Montreal, Lake George is a village located at the base of the Adirondack Mountains. And it happens to be my favorite place in the world. Sure, I’ve been to Iceland, Spain, France, Italy and countless other places… but I always find ultimate solace in this small tourist town. So much of my childhood is rooted here.

Countless games of mini golf played, gallons of ice cream eaten from The Pink Roofmiles and miles walked around the village…oh, and the discovery of the fudge apple!

I find myself in NYC most weekends to spend time with friends, but I’m glad I decided to take a drive up north to take in some fresh mountain air. Now, I’m going to head out and enjoy the sunshine before I have to head downstate again.

Hope you’re enjoying this weekend wherever you may be – small town, big city, desert valley, planet Jupiter, etc.
