Puerto Rico

I love an interesting picture. Something colorful, unique, eclectic, something that makes you think. The husband says that he had me in mind when he took these pics in San Juan. I love them. Now I'm inspired to plan a longer trip in Puerto Rico rather than the usual overnight stay on our way somewhere else.

"I'm so glad when Daddy comes home...."

The kids sing it in Primary, and I concur. Things are "right" when Daddy is home.

Adrian flew home to spend 30 hours with us in between his work travels. He doesn't really travel much, usually only about once a year. But this month will be a week in Puerto Rico, a week in Orlando, and a week on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. So Daddy, please come home soon and don't travel again until next year!

I never shared our day on the beautiful island of Nevis from a few months back. Nevis is just two miles and a ferry ride away from St. Kitts. The two islands make up one federation, but still, there is a whole different feel on Nevis. You can go to the end of this post for a short history of St. Kitts/Nevis. So without further ado, here are our pics from Nevis.

St. Kitts in the background.

History dating back hundreds of years.

We saw the birthplace and childhood home of Alexander Hamilton.

We saw beautiful plantations. Most are now bed & breakfasts, restaurants, or small hotels.

Interesting foliage and colorful shops.

Spent some time in the hammocks on the beach.

And had a handsome escort.

Our new friend

We've made a new friend since we moved 300 yards over a few months back. He comes by occasionally, but doesn't stay long, probably because of all the screaming and laughing whenever he comes for a visit. It is a little startling though to be all alone in the house and you come around the corner and realize there is a creature right outside the back door looking at you.
