Add to your boating playlist: West Marine launches Waterlife station on Pandora

I love finding new music and radio stations. Today’s pick is a station on Pandora that I just discovered while perusing press releases and news sites. It’s been playing on Pandora since May, so I’m a little late getting on board, but better late than never. West Marine has launched a first-ever music station on […]

Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort coming to Fort Lauderdale in 2015

One of my favorite brands is making its way to another beach location. Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Beach Resort already has a tropical presence on Pensacola Beach, and it will soon be among the soft sand of Hollywood Beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Opening in summer 2015, the destination resort and entertainment complex will be situated […]

Half Shell Raw Bar, Key West, Makes Cover of Kenny Chesney single ‘When I See This Bar’

Laid-back beach bars, island locations and good music always seem to go hand in hand. If anything can bring it home even more, and toss in an artistic touch, it is an artist/performer like Kenny Chesney. A Key West establishment that sings of the images and feelings evoked in many of Chesney’s songs has just […]

An Ode to National Pi(e) Day

In honor of National Pi Day (3.14 on 3/14, get it?), I thought I would celebrate with my favorite type of Pi.  Being the literate, and non-mathematical, type of person that I am, my favorite type of Pi does not involve math.  No, my favorite type of Pi is spelled “Pie” and it involves eggs, […]

Trop-Rockin’ with Balmy Palms

You don’t have to read very many of my posts to figure out what an island girl I am.  I mean, really, I named my blog “Somewhere in the Sand.”  How much more of a clue do you need? Give me a swaying hammock, a shady palm tree and some nice, soft sand beneath my […]

Blogging About Blenders

Move over Hamilton Beach and Cuisinart, there’s a new blender in town.  It’s big and it’s colorful and it’s branded by Buffett. Now, I’m not one to wax poetic about kitchen appliances.  Or cooking in general, for that matter.  You will rarely see me writing about recipes or anything that requires me having to prepare […]

Bicycles, Bonfires and a Trip Around the Sun

“…I’m just hanging on while this old world keeps spinning / And it’s good to know it’s out of my control / If there’s one thing that I’ve learned from all this living / Is that it wouldn’t change a thing if I let go…” This is one of my favorite lines from one of […]

My Mission to Margaritaville

Once upon a time, I sold t-shirts for Jimmy Buffett. We workers in the Merchandise department at Kings Dominion were responsible for that type of thing at concerts…. that little stand where consenting consumers happily hand over their cash to purchase t-shirts, decals, buttons, hats, etc…etc… As a seventeen-year-old, it was a pretty cool deal […]
