But first, because leaving a day early is an old island habit, we got to hang about in Old San Juan, a place that never fails to show me something new. Of course, these days, with my memory, the old is new again often.

Out at Zoni the day started with sky sirens.
I could have taken photos flying from Culebra to SJU but truthfully, we swooped out over the sea so damn fast it didn't occur to me to do anything but ride the thrill. The landing was the same sort of dashing derring-do, completely competent cowboy. We'd been delayed an hour and obviously the pilot was going to try and give us back a few minutes of that time. He did.
And here we were.
|Nope, not a Moroccan store, but maybe once?|
Of course, there are more than doors here. There are forts. Two of them but they seem to be all of a piece, popping up behind whatever you were thinking you wanted to look at like a jack in the box surprise.
|It was a great day for flying kites!|
|What better history combo? Fort, lighthouse, beautiful day?|
|Disappointment can't last long with views like this.|
|I'd love to know what this monk is doing with three almost naked nymphs|
|We found this in City Hall|
|If the smell of cat pee hadn't been so strong here |
I'd have loved to do some illicit exploring
|I was looking at part of this door and Renee noticed the knocker. Yay!|
|Hey, it's what I see|
|One day I really will get to all the museums|
|Oh the influences!|
I don't remember the name of the place we had dinner but it had a little of everything for everyone and my pollo mofongo was really good.
Back at the place we stayed there was some commercial making going on. We sat entertained for a few hours, watching the acting going on from one balcony on one side of the street to another balcony on our side. I'm sure they appreciated our applause and occasional word of encouragement. Who wouldn't, right?
But finally a long day of walking won over a 30th or so re-take.
Today we'll be heading to Albuquerque but we won't get there until tomorrow. In the meantime, there is coffee to find and suitcases to repack.
Have a fortunate Friday. Do something in fine fettle.
