Puerto Rico is a beautiful Island in the Caribbean. We have visited this island several times in the past decade, and every visit was a wonderful experience. On our visit in February of 2007, we were on a cruise. We took an excursion of Old San Juan which included spending time in the beautiful old fort that defended the island for centuries:
From the fort, you can look down over one of the gates into the city:
And once in the city you have many beautiful streets and buildings:
I love the sense of depth in that last picture with the beautiful cobblestone street receding into the distance. Also, the muted colors of the buildings add a quiet beauty.
For this post, I will leave you with a picture of the island as we pulled away in our cruise ship.
The picture gives you a real sense of the island nature of Puerto Rico. On a future post, we will explore other interesting aspects of the island.
