Probably the highlights of the trip were surfing in Rincon (for me) and then the island of Vieques. It was really beautiful over there, and such nice beaches, perfect for the kids to swim in. The kids loved playing in the sand, and they got to do some killer snorkeling, which is a first for them, mainly due to a combination of age and location. We also had this really nice house in Vieques, and it kind of made it that much better. What a nice place, so beautiful and comfortable, and even though the weather got hot (I can’t imagine what it’s like in August), there was ample breeze to keep us cool. If anything, it was very pleasant. The house was huge, too, and could easily accommodate 10 people.
We got a huge amount of beach time, but what makes trips like this so enjoyable is all the down time we get to spend together. Our lives were crazy this winter with hockey, and it continued with more of the same with track and lacrosse, then musicals and drama. You really have to get away to have some quality down time and just relax and hang out together. Otherwise, there is always something that needs to be done, and you never stop moving.
On that note, now that we’re back, I’ve got a ton of things to do, so I have to go. Thanks for reading.
