Here are a few photos that don’t probably deserve a post on their own but are just a part of the slice of life living in Puerto Rico. Sometimes the scenes and places we end up just seem so surreal, like we are living in a dream or some sort of cartoon. Sometimes it’s very strange, sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s just strikingly beautiful. But whatever it is, we’re living it up!
The beach is always right around the corner
I finally got a photo of the mongoose! The little egg bandit!
Turkeys need to cross bridges too! This particular guy is the hope for the future of our turkeys. The last surviving male.
We are harvesting more and more of our own fruit from the finca like this corazón, a fruit that looks like a heart
And these interesting bilimbes that are juicy and so sour but leave a cool buttery taste in your mouth
And we went out and got some more plants too!
I forgot to mention that Kitty is adapting well to the move over to the cabin too
Out and about there is always something cool to see and do
Like this little Coconut Barrita
Or this amazing hibiscus flower right in the plaza that took my breath away
Check out the view from this roadside liquor store
And there is nothing like the bottom half of a naked mannequin to draw attention to your store!
One of the conga players from the balneario came down and practiced with us in the jam space!
There’s never a shortage of spectacular sunsets here!
And new spots to check out like Pal Monte
Which is just up the road from El Ultimo Brinco, Rincon’s little waterfall spot
Or at the restaurant Cowboys which is like a little slice of Colorado in Rincón (with friend and musician, Anthony Lee). They even have rodeos here!
And we got to see our friends play some country music – the Rubberneckers
And if Puerto Rico is like Toon Town, we are now part of the loony fabric too! Here’s Viking man at the beach!
Or the contemplation of a coconut in an abandoned house without a roof
And everything is so colorful!
Rincón even has the cartoon-like welcome signs!
And did I mention the beach is around every corner?
