update: buccaneer repair

After returning from their October vacations, Paya Bay's grounds team hit the ground running with the continuing repair of Buccaneer Landing. The area was severely damaged by a storm early this year. The guys harvest clumps of "bar mud" (sea grass roots and silty sand) to cover the rock platform.

the fascinating case of jordan axani

If your name is Elizabeth Gallagher, have a Canadian passport and love to travel, then a plane ticket for a trip around the world is waiting for you. The only catch is that you will have to travel with the ex-boyfriend of the original Elizabeth Gallagher who was scheduled to make the same trip with the then-love of her life. The plane ticket has been put up for grabs by Jordan Axani, a 28-year-old Toronto man who has started a social media firestorm with his offer. Axani posted the offer on Reddit Monday, explaining that he had booked the trip back in March with Gallagher, they have since broken up and the tickets are, “frankly so cheap and on so many different airlines that they're not worth the headache or money to cancel.” Axani’s around-the-world trip will start Dec. 21, in New York City and continue on to Milan, Prague, Paris, Bangkok and New Delhi before ending in Toronto Jan. 8. Axani wrote in his Reddit post that he is “not looking for anything in return” and that the person who uses the extra ticket can choose to either travel with him or take the ticket and go on her own.

People around the world have recognized the landscape behind Mr. Axani as being Paya Bay and have forwarded us this scoop multiple times! Guess it's a small Facebook world...

flying to honduras

She said: ‘Having not seen the rainbow with my naked eye, when I saw it in the shot I was stunned. At first I thought it was caused by the polarised plane window or jet fuel vapour.
The shot was taken over the Caribbean as Ms Rensen, from London, Ontario, flew to Honduras.

love, joy, and harmony

Love is the highest power we possess to be in complete harmony with the law of attraction. The more love we feel the greater our power. The more selfless love we feel, the more unfathomable our power.

The law of attraction has been called the law of love, because the law itself is a gift of love to humanity. It is the law by which we can create incredible lives for ourselves.

The more love we feel the greater our power to create a magnificent life of love, joy, and harmony.
