Puerto Rico Part 1...

 Andy and I went to San Juan, Puerto Rico last week for 5 days during spring break. 4 other couples went with us~no kids! We had a blast! It was the perfect mix of personalities and we all just had a laid back, fun, exciting adventure. So much so that I have to break this up in to 2 posts because there is just way too much to show to get it all into one. ;)
We started out on Sunday morning at 6:30 am~flying from Memphis to Atlanta.
 We had a 7 hour lay-over that turned into a 10 hour lay-over because our first plane had technical air-conditioning issues, which translated into extreme anxiety for me (scared to fly) which then turned into too many a few cocktails to relax me. You can see the progression in these pics...
 1. At a restaurant having a glass of wine.
 2. On the first plane after a couple of glasses.
 3. Waiting to board a new, improved, functioning plane, having another glass of wine and look!...I found a friend. This is Dan, the random guy who I sat down with in the Atlanta airport and had an hour and a half long conversation with. Hmmm....feeling less anxious by now. ;)
 OK~let's fast forward to getting to Puerto Rico :).
 This is our beautiful 8 bedroom/6 bathroom house. It was awesome. The rooms were beautiful, the back patio and private pool were perfect. We had two kitchens and two huge wrap around 2nd level porches in the front and back of the house. We were 50 yards from the beach which was never crowded or touristy. The temps were in the low to mid 80's~sunny and breezy~and this time of year is considered San Juan's winter!

 We rented two cars and drove all over the city. It only took us a day to get used to the driving and to figure out how to get around and where all the good stuff was.

We had one hiccup~the first full day/night we were there, Tina slipped on the tile stairs (you can see the tile in this pic) and hit her head causing her to have to get 9 stitches and a CT scan at the local hospital. Luckily, it wasn't any worse and she had a great time the rest of the trip.

These are just random pics; all the good pics are on Andy's phone so once I download them, I will post our snorkeling trip, rain forest tour, Old San Juan tour, etc. So much more to share!!
