Last week I shared the first set of images from my recent trip to Rincon, Puerto Rico. I love taking photos (it's why I'm a RI children's photographer!) and that doesn't change on vacation. When you're in a different place for two and a half weeks, those photos really add up!
Here I'll be sharing the next set of images from this wonderful and magical place.
As is nearly always the case in winter in western Puerto Rico, there were waves--good sized to REALLY good sized--for much of our trip. The surfing that you see in places like Puerto Rico, where the weather and waves make it easy to surf very often, is really good. There are people who come from all over to surf here, but there are also locals who have been surfing in large part since they were really young, and they're amazing. I was sick for part of the time we were on vacation and so wasn't able to surf as much as I wanted, but that left plenty of time to watch (and photograph) the surfing, which is almost as fun as actually surfing.
This part of our trip also includes more cats, lots of little details, kombucha (yay for Karibe Kombucha....their flavors are AMAZING!), and a trip into the mountains. WAY into the mountains. Higher than I've ever been before. The view was incredible, though I only got two photos because this scaredy cat felt like I was going to fall right off the road into the valley. Oh well, at least there's also the memory of that gorgeous, expansive (and REALLY HIGH UP) place.
Take a look below to see the photos (and stay tuned for one more installment!) Remember, if you've been on the fence about going to western Puerto Rico, or Puerto Rico in general, after the hurricane...don't be afraid to do it! They want you there and will welcome you with open arms.
