Here we are in Viejo San Juan ("Old San Juan"), myself, Colin, Jennie and Laura.
These bananas are called "Mameyes." I liked them. They are also fun to give away to strangers.
Can you see the lizard on this tree? Laura did.
Ferry from Fajardo to Vieques.
Abe's tour of the bioluminescent bay.
Anyway, the bioluminesence is amazing. Jennie, Colin and I went in the water and saw the water glow with each arm and leg stroke. We gathered around Laura and did "snow angels" in the water. I was most surprised that when I picked my arm out of the water and it drained back into the bay, I could see individual points of light scattered randomly all over my hand and arm. It is a vivid connection to the power of life.
