Puerto Rico Vacation: Part 1

Last week we took our annual winter vacation and enjoyed San Juan, Puerto Rico and the surrounding area.

Breakfast place one morning... one cup of coffee, no refills. :
We loved San Juan, historic forts, the brightly colored houses and storefronts, the great food, the beaches and the bioluminescent bay with glowing algae. But I'll get through those over the course of this week through photos.
LODGING -We stayed at the Radisson Casino Hotel, which was nice, but on the last Monday of the month the casino throws a huge party outside (which was on the side of our room). Fortunately, the party ended at 10pm  
The main street through Condado
TIME NOTE - Puerto Rico is on Atlantic Time, one hour later than Eastern Standard Time. Television programs are interestingly on one hour LATER then regular time. So, an 8pm EST show would air at 9pm AST (Puerto Rico local time).

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
