Winter 2016 in Puerto Rico

January 30, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

On our first night in Rincon, Puerto Rico, we went to this beach to attend a memorial for a local NY surfer who passed away. Unfortunately, we couldn't find it so we admired the beautiful sunset. The girls were my muses and my silhouettes.

We started the next morning poolside and enjoying the 85 degree weather. I feel so blessed so have stayed in a house that had a pool and looked like it was in the middle of the jungle.

I think today may have been a lazy day so we watched Caroline make her amazing guacamole. The girls found a coconut and had to find a way to crack it open.

We finished the day out by relaxing by the pool. Tyler and I caught up on some social media and I uploaded and edited some of these photos!

Next day we went to a beach bar at a local hotel. 

After the beach bar, we went to this cool place called the Lazy Parrot which was a hotel/restaurant/bar. The girls were my muses again.

Across the street from the house we were staying in, there was a field with two horses in it. Needless to say, the kids were fascinated. So was I.

The next day, Tyler and I ventured off to Aguadilla to stay in a hotel to be close to the airport. After we settled in, we went on an adventure to the beach. We found this awesome surf/skate shop on our way.

It might not look like it, but it started to lightly rain after this. We had a choice: either we walk back to the hotel as quickly as possible (it was about a 20-30 minute walk) or we stay and find shelter. We decided to find shelter under these beautiful palms.

We thought we were safe until the light rain turned in torrential downpour. I don't know how we got so lucky but it seemed like we were destined to be there because everything fell into place. We found a massive rock that had what looked like a cave. We stowed our stuff away, most importantly my prized camera and equipment, and walked out into the rain. The rain was so cold but so invigorating. We went to the beach to find refuge from the cold rain and were blessed with the warm ocean water. We waited out the rain on the beach, feeling so alive and one with nature. My camera held heavy on my mind though so we eventually ran back with fingers crossed that everything was still in the cave. I breathed a huge sigh of relief to see it was all still there and we trekked back to our hotel. We rinsed off and went to dinner in the hotel restaurant. We slept, woke up at 4am, and went to the airport.
