Day 1 - Rincon, Puertco Rico
It was a great first day. The pictures will follow eventually...hopefully if J gets around to sharing them with me.
We spent our first day at a beach called Domes here in Rincon. Domes gets its name from the abandoned nuclear reactor dome that sits adjacent to the beach. Who knew that getting a tan will most likely allow me to glow in the dark as well...
Anyhow, Rincon is the surfing capital of the Caribbean, so needless to say the beach was a busy place for surfers and watchers alike. It had a very bohemian, laid back, friendly feel to it. It was nice and tranquil.
We also had the opportunity to see 2 humpback whales surface not too far from shore. We were able to watch them for over 30 minutes - swimming along, not a care in the world. It was an AWESOME sight!
Not so awesome are the drivers here in Puerto Rico. To put it mildly - they are slightly insane. I am not a timid driver by any means, but these people scare the shit out of me. Within 5 minutes of leaving the airport yesterday, we were almost side-swiped. Good thing I have cat like reflexes...or nine lives.... I'm wise to them now.
Tomorrow is another day at the beach...
