All my life through, the new sights of Nature
made me rejoice like a child.
A glimpse into my visit with Mary and Andrew in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
|Old San Juan has a majestic beauty because of its cobblestone roads, old buildings and harbor. This picture was taken from one of the forts that used to guard the city from invaders, built in 1535. The old and new are mingled together.|
|Colorful street in Old San Juan. My eyes feasted on all the color, flowers and green trees.|
|Dorado is a small town on the northern coast of Puerto Rico and about 15 miles from San Juan. The beach here was just a lovely. Many wealthy people have lived here.|
|I'm standing by a fern covered wall in the Fort in Old San Juan. What a joy to wear sandals!|
|We went snorkeling here. Mary and I saw a baby sea turtle, fish with bright yellow fins, and one very large spotted fish with whiskers. The water is very clear and not as salty as our east coast ocean.|
|This is what we came home to! Fortunately we did have power, (but no water) and our kind neighbor had cleared our driveway for us. Spring can't get to NC soon enough for me. I've been thoroughly spoiled!|
