The Daily Sunset

B said I should do a repeating post called the Daily Sunset, and I thought - YES, because the sunsets here are just too good. This sunset on this day was about seeking and finding. We were at home and the kids were pestering and arguing with each other and the whining was hitting a... Continue Reading →

Old San Juan

This historic little town inside an overflowing, modern, metropolis felt like another world. Literally, another universe in another time, and I loved it.

Castles Made of Sand

Sunsets and Sandcastles The kids have had the opportunity to make some perfectly creative sandcastles here, and we have enjoyed every single one in the last two weeks. It's incredible to live somewhere where this is your playground, and there is no better backdrop for a temporary masterpiece than the Caribbean ocean and a beautiful... Continue Reading →

Quirky Puerto Rico

From the Eyes of a Texan This place is so fun, and funny, and different (to me). As I type, right now, this is going on: There are a bunch of happy-looking chickens doing a chicken noise thing in the house 2 down. They have a super cute coop, complete with a child-size playhouse to... Continue Reading →

Gozalandia Waterfall

A Slice of Magic Outside San Sebastian We took the hour-ish drive over to San Sebastian to the Gozalandia Waterfalls today, and it was well worth it. When we got to the lower waterfall, it was 11 am on a Saturday, and there was no one there. Ten minutes later, there were at least 10... Continue Reading →

Day 1 on the Island of Enchantment

There is no other way to share the magic of this island (so far), than by showing. So here goes! I know this is not a Puerto Rico shot, but it feels pretty magical. Our last glimpse of Austin, out R's airplane window. The crescent moon, a few start/planets/sattelites, and the sun going down. Goodnight... Continue Reading →

MAÑANA

Yes, we're still going! Yes, we leave tomorrow! For real. We got renters. No, really. It's (drumroll . . .): Couple C! They showed up early for their 5:30 appointment 2 days ago and wanted it and put the deposit down this morning. All we have left is a couple of signatures, and we're good... Continue Reading →

3 Days Till Puerto Rico

Er, Take Two Updates: More people coming to see the house today (allegedly). We have gone through a couple more potential renters since I last posted. Couple A: Over the moon about the house. Wanted it TODAY. Wanted to pay 3 months up front just to hold it. Got the application from our realtor -... Continue Reading →

The Road to Happiness

Our first Airbnb when we get to Rincon is a little casa on the hill, on Cam Carretas 413. The locals call Carr. 413 “The Road to Happiness". Here are some pictures of the vista we’ll have: Aaaah. The most special thing about this house is that if we like it, the owner has offered... Continue Reading →

New D Date

Take 2: We bought our tickets to Rincón! Flying out January 26th now. This time, I paid extra for the flex fare (so that we can change the flight without penalty fees), just in case. Live and learn. We still don't have renters. Jim finally messaged our realtor saying that they wanted a bigger place,... Continue Reading →

Last Day in Texas

This is supposed to be our last day in Texas for six months. We were scheduled to fly out of AUS tonight at 5:55 pm, headed for Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. But that is not to be. Yesterday, after yet another large 5.9/6.0 earthquake, we canceled our flight. It is very strange to spend months readying... Continue Reading →
