WHAT? A trip without picking? Yes, I believe they spell that v-a-c-a-t-i-o-n. W e headed off to the island of Vieques for 4 days of tropical adventure to celebrate our respective 60th birthdays. How was the road at sixty? Nothing short of divine. Never had I been without TV or computer for so long or missed it less.
Vieques is a short flight on a teeny plane from Puerto Rico. See how close I am to the pilot .
Being a horse lover, I was tickled to see them everywhere. They have the run on the island along with roosters and dogs.
This is a crab "farm". They trap the land crabs and fatten them up before eating.
Primitive? Or efficient!
Gorgeous flowers and brightly painted homes. Fabulous food. Beautiful and sparsely populated beaches. We snorkeled, swam, kayaked and walked to take in the scenery and the blue-green water of the Caribbean.
Sweet Murphy was a pleasure to ride.
Seeing all of this from horseback was dream-like. I hope to return to the island soon...
