|Pre-party: thank you, Myrna, for the petition to get our beautiful dock back!|
|Glad sad feelings about this one|
|Familia Solis (I see a future in acting for their youngest)|
|Again, the anthems of Puerto Rico, the US and Culebra were played and sung|
|I have no idea what the kids were singing, but they did it really well|
|I also have no idea what this playlet was about, but it was fun to watch|
|From barely contained grins...|
|to bigger smiles...|
|to outright joy!|
|I have no idea quite what happened in this photo of Joyce and Wiki, but it's so them!|
|As with all things Culebra, there was food and beer for everyone. Thank you!|
|First in the band line up was Gardin and Son de Culebra...they are so good!|
|Jose looking incredibly dapper|
|And the dancing started!|
|As always on Culebra, the children were there, enjoying themselves and being enjoyed|
|Mario was his excellent self and took the energy to a higher level.|
|I'm grinning when I type, THIS IS OUR MAYOR!!!|
|And this is our mayor with more than a few of his staff|
|Our own lovely first lady|
|Juan Juan was front and center|
In between bands
|I'm not sure what Ivan, Jose and I were looking at but it must have been interesting|
|Mario being Mario|
Then came Tinglao. By now it was somewhere on the other side of midnight. I was still awake. They woke me up more. Yes, there was dancing. More dancing.
It was time for me to head home. A great party, with wonderful people, it felt like the heartbeat of Culebra. I think a lot of us are still grinning. Or drinking Bloody Mary's. Or both. Something tells me we're into something good!
|To four years of doing what's right for Culebra!|
Have a heart sated Saturday. Do something smiling.
p.s. Thanks, Doug, for loaning me a memory card!
