Culebra Vacation

We are crazily packing all our possessions, so we are ready to fly back to Missouri (permanently-well a permanent as we can at the moment). We've been running around all weekend, and yesterday, getting ready for the move. I will be taking a few days off from the blog (a few more days, that is) until we are settled back at home...please forgive me my absence, but I hope you'll understand. But before I go, I promised to share pictures from our (my hubby and my) mini vacation to Culebra, Puerto Rico.
 Waiting for the ferry-oh look, we match :)
 Jeep Rental
 Our luggage
 Our rental house
 The bathroom
 Beautiful place
Sunset on the first night-view from our balcony 

 First beach...Danger sign at entrance
 Sign says: Danger, unauthorized personnel keep out. Possible unexploded military ammunitions. If you see a suspect item, do not touch, call the local police at (787)7423501
The hike to the beach (past the Danger sign)
 The view of the ocean from the beach
 I fell coming into shore from snorkeling, and I hit a sea urchin...only painful for a couple of hours :)
 Our cute mugs after snorkeling-we both have lovely hair, I know
 Random chickens on the beach
 The hike back to the car
 The view from the top of the hike
 Our drive to another beach
 Another view on the island
The foliage on the island is not nearly as green on the main island of Puerto Rico, the coloring reminds me of summers in Utah (a little green, but still brown) 
 Sunset on our second night, from one of the beaches
 Sunset walk on the beach
 Lovely super soft sand
 Breaking waves
 A new beach on our 4th day

 My sandy toes
 Seashell hunting on the 3rd day

 Big crab-y claws (still alive)
 Our orangey-yellow jeep
More seashell hunting
Most of these pictures were taken in/on Culebra, Puerto Rico (except the ferry picture). The small island in the picture above has a couple of beaches as well. We kayaked over to the island (took longer than expected, and we fought the current on the way back to the dock)...anyway, we kayaked to the island to do some snorkeling. None of our cameras/phones are completely waterproof, so we didn't take them with us-which means there are no pictures of the prettiest beach we visited, or of us kayaking :)

If you are thinking about taking a vacation to somewhere in the Bahamas or Caribbean, Culebra just might be a good fit for you. It is busy in the town (the only real city on the island), but during the week, every other place on the island is pretty vacant...and quite lovely!

Let me know if you have any questions about Puerto Rico, Culebra, or traveling in general. I'd be more than happy to share all the information I have (and my husband has) gained over the last couple of years.

I hope you get to enjoy a good vacation somewhere beautiful this year! Thanks for stopping by!
