Alas, the honeymoon had to end

We wrapped up our honeymoon in Vieques, Puerto Rico. This is a small island off the coast of the main island...about a 20 minute flight. We took one of those little 10-seater planes, where seat #1 is the pilot. I didn't really like that. ONE pilot? What if something had happened to him? Yikes!

Anyway, we got to Vieques and it was beautiful. Wild horses everywhere.

Beautiful beaches.

Laid back bars and restaurants.

This crazy tree.

I almost wish we had had more time to spend there. It was while we were there that I realized that I really am one of those people who just wants to lay on the beach on vacation. We stayed at a place called Hector's by the Sea, which I loved.

They have three casitas, are right on the water, and were just the friendliest people ever. They provided a cooler and beach chairs for us so each morning we headed to the store, filled the cooler with beer, and then just laid around the beach. PERFECT!

We headed back to San Juan for one more night before we had to come back to what was the iciest night so far in the Twin Cities. It took us an hour to get home from the airport (this is normally 20 minutes tops for us).

And, now...here it is three weeks later and we have just experienced Snomageddon. As my tan fades it is hard to believe we were ever on a beach, beer and book in hand, the biggest worry where we would go for lunch.

Knitting related content coming soon! Afterall, we were snowed in all day yesterday!
