So here are some more pictues...they are couple over that last two days. Yesterday, we went to the location of the old bunkers. Needless to say, Jason found a small (I would not even call it a road) dirt path, and found this bunker.



I was too afraid to get out of the Jeep. All I could think about was snakes.


And then we stopped by the 300 year old Silk Cotton Wood Tree. Amazing...




On our way back to town we stopped by the local Pescadoria/fish market (my Spanish classes are coming in handy and my dictionary is stained from use), and we picked up dinner.





It was really good! We have done a good bit of cooking in. We have had lemon pepper chicken, fresh green beans, and brown rice...then lobster (caught locally) and baked potatoes, and now we are about to have hamburgers, hot dogs, and salad with Benihana dressing (Jason made of course)!


Today, we toured some during the moring. We think we might have found the Black Sand Beach and then went on to do some body surfing at Navio again and enjoy the laid back Media Luna. At Media Luna I found a new friend.



My new friend...




Obviously, I am not the only one that is a fan of the neon colors for summer!


My neon toes in the sand!



Jason at Media Luna.



Here is a Vieques Road Block that we saw on our way out.


And my beach glass collection grows with each day!

Beach pictures are here...

They are in order of the way that we have seen them so far.

The first is the view from our villa. It is so nice to have a beach that you can enjoy at any time. (I don't think I could stay anywhere else on the island.)



Esperanza was the next stop. This is basically the hangout area with a few bars, restaurants, and a little spot where people set up and sell their creations.

This is the first sunset we saw. It is the beach outside of the villa. What a way to finish your first day on the island!



On Sunday, we started the day with snorkeling at a Pier that is currently closed. We just pulled right up to the gate, jumped out, walked down the rocks, and into the water.


Starfish were every where. I was afraid to put my fins down...I was afraid that I was going to step on one!

We went to waste some time before we had to meet up for the Bio Bay Tour and found Navio Beach. (This could possibly have been the spot were Piggy and Ralph had their first conversation in Lord of the Flies! The movie was filmed mainly on this beach.)




We are at Bio Bay here beginning our tour! This was a true once in a lifetime experience!


This is a little video clip from Blue Beach. It is beautiful.

Here is Jason enjoying some snorkeling time at Blue Beach. (The Olympus digital camera is fun!)



I believe this was Silver Beach.



And this one is Secret Beach.



And this is Orchid Beach.




Stay tuned...there are more to come!
