Ponce

Slept in today and then took a 1.5 hr drive southwest to the second largest city in PR, Ponce. Robert was only in the mood to drive with the pedal to the metal, NOT sightsee. Through begging, I did get him to park by the central plaza and old fire house for about three minutes so I could take some photos.

Then we drove up to the Museo Castillo Serralles (The Seralles Castle) for a tour. It was quite beautiful and Robert was quite cranky. I enjoyed just seeing more of the local flavor of the city - the pastel colored houses and Catholic School children in uniforms. On the way home, we got caught in a rainstorm. Because the A/C was cranked up to high, I rolled down the window and stuck my hand out to feel how strange it is to be in some Oregon style rain while the weather is still warm, and the answer is: Strange!
I took a short walk on the beach at dusk.

It rained in San Juan as well today so everything was pretty wet but still quite comfortable and of course, peaceful as all get-out. It'll be an early night tonight as we are being picked up by Robert's Aunt and sister tomorrow morning at 7:45 for the trip to Culebra for some more snorkeling.
