Puerto Rico Part II

I forgot to mention there were chickens and roosters running loose everywhere! They crow from about 2am to 10pm everyday. The kids took to naming them (the handsome guy below is Scaredy Bob) and the Engineer could often be heard mumbling under his breath about making them into stew ;o).

On the Saturday, there was a surf competition at Dome Beach in Rincón. We sat there for a few hours watching the surfers. (If you'd like to see more of the surfing action, see here.

This lad was maybe fifteen and he was amazing!! Nerves of steel and excellent! I believe he is in the above photo as well. I don't think we ever saw him crash.

We went geocaching three different times and of the five caches we looked for over the three excursions, we only found two. We had a real great time trying to find them though.

We really enjoyed our home away from home. It was interesting living amongst the locals. I just wish we knew more Spanish.


  1. I am so glad you guys got a little break. It looks like such a nice time together, and warm:O)

  2. Sure looks like a great time! Did you do a house-swap, or is that a vacation rental?

  3. Those are superb chicken pictures you caught!

  4. Your pictures ARE fantastic! Love the water photos! Wasn't it so lovely to be warm? Soon I'll be warm in Sydney!

  5. In Hawaii this past Christmas there were chicken and rosters everywhere too. So know a little about hearing them crow at all hours of the day and night!
    You are an amazing photographer. I enjoy your pictures so much.
    I would also like to know if the house was for rent or if you did a house swap or how you found your lovely home away from home.
    Blessings upon blessings to you

  6. We rented the house. Murray found it on the internet via a website called Home Away. It would have been rather dull for the folks who swapped with us. Nothing to do around here in the winter. We have to go further north to really enjoy the snow.



Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I love to hear from my readers!
