Ten Days, Two Islands (Part 1)

Andy attended a critical care conference in Puerto Rico last week, and I tagged along.  We spent just one day in San Juan years ago, and had always looked forward to revisiting.  Besides sunshine and sleep, sweet friends and great food and interesting cultural entertainment, one of the highlights was exploring the forts of Old San Juan, battlements that were begun in the 16th century.  
Our time there happened to coincide with the city's largest party of the year, the San Sebastian Street Festival.  Old San Juan was thick with hundreds of thousands of people, four days worth of parades and artisans and food and drink.  We were glad to have time there both during and not during the festival.
 Tuck asked us to take pictures of creatures

And Tollie likes creatures that say "Cock a doodle doo" so you've got all the bases covered. Thanks for sharing some of the beauty!

I can't decide what I enjoy seeing more - the breathtaking scenery or the joy on your faces.

I am so glad you were able to get away together. Stunning pictures...especially of the one of you two so obviously in love.
