The whales seem to have left the area, we haven’t seen any signs out on the ocean. They are here from December to February, so I guess they have moved on.
I included pictures of the bananas out back, they are growing so fast
16 – Today we again did our walk down to the ocean. We walked to the other end of the beach. There aren’t any surfers out this morning. It wasn’t any easier going up the road.
This afternoon we go to Aguada Beach, we aren’t really looking for sea glass, but do look along the beach. We brought out chairs and sat and read, enjoyed the wind and sun, actually shade. It was so nice to be where there aren’t any people in a small space all talking at once.
We asked Richard Purdy if we could take a picture of him painting and a picture of his paintings. He is planning for a very large show in Toronto on October 1. If you go on youtube.com and search his name, chose the ones in French, and you can see his show in Schewenegen. It is impressive and when I asked him how it was done it is even more impressive.
We went to the casino to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Can’t figure that one out, but they announced it as their party day
17 – We did the walk again this morning. Lots of cars going up and down the road. We walked to the end of the beach and there were lots of surfers out this morning, same place as yesterday. We couldn’t figure out what the difference was in the waves from yesterday and today but I guess there is.
We watched for 20 minutes and then left to go back. No, it wasn’t easier at the steep bottom. Maybe in a couple of days it will be.
This afternoon we went to Crash Boat and Len went for a snorkel. He seen the little turtle again and lots of trumpet fish. There are vendors who sell pinchos (meat on a stick), fish and pop or pina coladas. The pinchos smelled really good today, but maybe it was just the way the wind was blowing. It was a cooler wind today.
Tonight we went out to 110 Thai Restaurant
We came back just after 5 when it opens and went inside to the restaurant to eat. We had Pad Cashew with shrimp and a 1 for spiciness. You could have up to ten, I think that would be quite hot. The place was full inside before we left. The food was excellent and I am so glad we went, will go back again, hopefully before we leave.
It was getting full outside also, the band was ready to play. We were trying to figure out how we would get out of the parking lot when it began to rain. The band and their instruments took shelter. We left to go home.
Sounds exciting, we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at a Thai Restaurant in Puerto Rico!
