Out and About Around Town in Photos: March/April 2016

Posted by Cassie

We have been busy at the finca, but we’ve also been out and about quite a bit. We always see such interesting things and have so much fun whenever we go out. I often don’t have the camera with me or I just miss something, but here are a few occasions where we managed to capture the moment just right.

Waves at the lighthouse

Britton Bar Cuajito
If you’re hanging out at a true Boricua bar, you’ll know it by the artwork on the walls, the generous amounts of mayo-ketchup you are served and the big pot of homemade cuajito on the counter -yum!

Rincon Continentals Daisy Playa
Our latest gig with our band the Rincón Continentals was at Playa Beach Bar -Yes, that translates to Beach Beach Bar -lol (photo thanks to Daisy)

Beachy day
The sky and water have been so blue lately!

Slip n Slide easter
Epic Easter Party shenanigans at Summer and Stefan’s! Surfing down a slip ‘n slide! How cool is this! (Thanks to Missy for this photo!)

Speaker truck strange sights
Driving is ever the absurdity with speaker trucks like these!

Truck with no doors strange sights
Or monster trucks like this one without doors

Beach birthday party
And where is the best place for a kid’s birthday party (or anyone’s really)? The beach of course!

Computer repair island style strange sights
And it’s also apparently a good place for computer repair too! Who knew!? :-)

Boss chair pool
And you’ll really feel like a boss when you’re playing at a billiards hall furnished with office chairs! haha!

Car wash gas station view
And don’t forget to take in the most gorgeous ocean views while filling up with gas or washing your car!

How can you not love a place like this?! It’s so much fun!

Snapshots of Life Right Now: September 2015

Posted by Cassie

Well, tomorrow is officially our 2 year anniversary of living in Puerto Rico (here’s life when we first arrived)! My how time flies! We still have so much to look forward to (or it could be seen as so much to do!) that time just sort of slips away from us. Perhaps it is the lack of snow and cold that makes everything sort of meld together, or maybe it is that we don’t have any real pressing urgency to be anywhere, but time has gone by so fast.

They say a picture is worth a 1000 words, so rather than attempt to write about our daily lives too much I thought I would just share many thousands of words in a few pictures. Thank goodness for pictures to capture a few of these fleeting moments.

Mowing the lawn
Summer rains and heat means things grow super fast -so we both get out and mow!
