A new year has begun and it’s time to get writing. I haven’t blogged since November and I’ve been missing it!
Since then, I’ve spent New Year’s with my family in Puerto Rico, went to Topsail Island, North Carolina for a much-needed vacation, and am currently preparing for a 10-day trip back to Puerto Rico in early spring.
It’d been a while since my last trip home! I hadn’t visited the island since June 2002. A lot of things have changed! San Juan is more crowded and the roads are more congested. Being there for 3 days, however, and on a holiday weekend was only a teaser! It’s not enough time to enjoy such a beauty of a place.
When we go back in March, we will be visiting family and friends, and great places around the island, including el Yunque, the Arecibo Observatory, the Camuy Caverns, la Parguera, Old San Juan, and Ponce! In addition, our visit would never be complete without our traditional Family Bowling Outing. We are looking forward to having a good time and lots of fun.
Our trip to Topsail Island, North Carolina was relaxing and uneventful. We truly gave new meaning to the phrase “doing nothing slowly”. We spent most our time at the apartment, reading and writing and relaxing. We went out for dinner one time and we drove to Atlantic Beach to find the restaurant we wanted. We shopped, we slept late, we rested, and took only one walk on the beach.
When it was time to leave, we hated returning home! It is so peaceful out there compare to the hectic life we live, that it’s sad to get back home. Granted that we had 3 cats waiting for us and that we didn’t see for 10 days. They made our arrival home so much better. We all were looking forward to seeing one another.
For now we will continue planning our trip!
