Brief Trip Report: Puerto Rico 2009

Sorry for the delay with the Puerto Rico report. In brief, there was some airport excitement with the weather that the east coast was experiencing. Canceled flights, delays, etc. In the end of it all Nicole and I as well as the rest of the family arrived safely in Puerto Rico.

The house was literally on the beach and high tide waves occasionally hit the basement walls.

Nicole and I spent a day in Old San Juan. It reminded us of Old Town Pasadena in some ways. Of course in others...it was nothing like it.

great art museum that we checked out

much of our food was prepared at the house courtesy of Mr. Special, a local supermarket.

One of the days a group of us went hiking in Maricoa State Forest while another group hit up the zoo and some local shopping. During the hike the rain threatened but held off. There were many different kinds of trees, birds, and plants - some of which are not found anywhere else in the world.

the first leg of our trip home we were upgraded to First Class!

greeted home with a sunset over Los Angeles

I think I took around 450 photos, so this is just a glimpse. I may post a couple more here and there. I hope that you all had safe and fun holidays. Happy New Year to all.
