First, though, a travel tip. Easter is an excellent day to travel on the ferry. From Culebra, where there weren't enough people to call it a crowd - though there were some sleeping who came in way early, just in case - to Fajardo, where there was no crowd at all, and Fajardo to Vieques, with a probably more than half empty boat; it was happy faces and good moods. Nice!
|I never rode in this ferry with all the windows. Bright and light, I like it.|
This was on the Fajardo to Vieques portion of the trip.
|It was a beautiful morning. |
Despite weather warnings, we got picture perfect, cool breezes with sunshine and gentle water.
|Even the clouds participated in a wispy way|
|Coming upon Vieques|
|Porch with a view|
That was a great stop on the way to the next bar. With food. I love this place! I'd never been here but it was easy to see it felt right, right away. Plus, at the end of the bar was sitting an old friend I haven't seen in many, many years. We spent a long time catching up. People came and went, Kris, Jimmy and Kat also exchanged local stories about things going on Vieques wise. A grand way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Or morning that became afternoon...it was like that.
|I don't know why I thought of Kelli when I saw this.|
But I did.
|Kris ordered the dumplings and let me try one. they were amazing.|
With Lyman in the front and his wife and whoever that other guy is in the back,
this place covers a lot of ground personality wise and good food and drink wise
in a really small space.
|Great to see you again, old friend!|
|Yes, the famous Vieques horses were everywhere|
There was another stop at another very nice place to finish off an incredible day, but by then I was pretty sure any photo I took could be a wee bit fuzzy. I absolutely got the best tour with the best tour guides I could ask for, thanks, Jimmy and Kat!!!
The bad news is my camera seems to have died. One minute fine, the next no attempts so far have brought it back to life. So for now it will be phone photos and the hunt for a camera is on. Unless this one magically resurrects itself, which would be just dandy, as I am off today to St. Croix for the wedding of a very good and dear friend, before coming back to Vieques for Jimmy and Kat's wedding! I need a camera! This seems to be a theme with me, go to an unrepeatable event, camera dies...it's not the first or second time. Maybe I am sending out intense electric happiness and frying them.
Have a magical Monday. Do something momentous.
