We had SO much fun this week checking out your Tropical Selfie submissions! We received a bunch of great pics and had trouble narrowing them down, so are including as many as possible! Thank you to everyone who submitted a photo – they were all really good. Really wish we could have included them all. Be sure to check for a new Friends Foto theme on Sunday.
If you’re like us, these tropical “selfies” will truly put you in the mood for a tropical vacation!

This is me, Scott Moosbrugger, taken on Renaissance Island, Aruba, and it was great having seven flamingos that you could hand feed right at the beach.

Only recently have time and money converged to allow me to travel. My long held vision of a perfect tropical beach came true when the SV Mandalay anchored off Sandy Beach Island near Grenada. The moment my toes touched the sand I was living my dream. An empty island, countless fish for snorkeling, perfectly blue water and a sigh of blissful contentment.

My name is Trish Glenn, aka caribbeanpanprincess. I’m a steel drum player from the not so Caribbean Chicago suburbs. This was just one fabulous day spent with some of my bandmates on the island of Cozumel! We were having a great time at a reggae bar near the south end of the island here.

This pic was taken at Isla Pasion, Passion Island, Cozumel Mexico 2012, while on the Carnival Conquest. It was taken with my GoPro camera, I was walking the beach and snorkeling when I came across this conch shell!

My children’s first SXM vacation. They had a blast with the “jet blast” and I enjoyed watching the planes come in over beautiful Maho Bay!

My happy feet and the beautiful waves on a passage in the Leeward Islands – This was a bucket list trip that I’ve wanted to do for 30 years – St. Thomas, St. John, St. Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat, Antigua, St. Barts, Anguilla, Virgin Gorda, Tortola, and back to St. Thomas. This picture reminds me of the great time we had.
