While at Seven Seas we found a comfortable spot to sit beneath a pine tree for shade and we observed many local families enjoying the nice weather on this glorious Saturday afternoon. A walk along the beach permitted us to further appreciate the deep blue and varied hues of the sea and a coastline here unspoiled by commercial development whose most distinctive feature is a lighthouse perched atop a mountain ridge
For dinner, we decided upon La Ola which is a restaurant and marina in Fajardo. The dinners we ordered were delicious and very nicely presented on square plates with local color and flavor. As we left the restaurant we were struck by the beauty of the night sky with a crescent moon and what appeared to be two planets clearly visible with the naked eye. Ronnie later consulted various sources on the internet and determined that we observed Venus and Jupiter. If we had known to look more closely, we might have even seen Saturn.
This Saturday concluded with a trip to the casino at the El Conquistador Resort. Pat and Bob came away big winners at the gaming tables and slot machines. Ronnie and Sheila cut their losses at the Roulette wheel at the casino and decided to instead spend money on gifts at various shops located on the grounds of the resort. We all left feeling that it was another perfect day in Puerto Rico.
We are sorry to have Pat and Bob head back to New York tomorrow (hoping, of course, for a bump along the way). They have been great companions during this vacation.
