Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico beach
We started (and ended) our cruise in Puerto Rico. I fell in love with the old fort and only wish I'd booked a later flight on our last day so I could fit in old town.

Fort Chapel Entrance
Fort Look-out Point
Fort Light House

This last shot was what I saw as I borded the ship, proof that in the right light everything can be beautiful, even temporary structures.

When I think of music and Puerto Rico I immediately think of Menudo - I remember watching their TV show on Saturday mornings as a kid.  I had such a crush on little Ricky who only got better with age. Ricky Martin: Maria

For those of you in the US - Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. I hope you have a great time with your families/friends and that your travel is as painless as possible.

love that old fort. We only had a few hours while docked there when we went on our cruise a few years ago. I dragged my mother and aunt from one fort to the other so I could see both of them before they closed. by the time we got to the second fort (the one you have above) they were tired and sat on the grass while I spent the next 45 minutes running around inside. need to go back someday that is for sure

thanks for the memory.
