South Coast of Puerto Rico

We've been enjoying some little anchorages on the south coast of Puerto Rico for the last several days.  Now we are back in civilization in Ponce, the 2nd largest city in Puerto Rico and are looking forward to checking out the malecon tonight.  We got to do some of the things we've been missing, like swimming and kayaking.  I took a kayak trip through some mangroves where the water was crystal clear and I saw all kinds of interesting sea life hanging out in there.

We saw a manatee in La Parguera! It's the first one that I've ever seen and I've been looking since the day we arrived in Key West.  I couldn't get any pictures of him, he was just hanging out in the anchorage and swimming around, but it was still exciting.  I have also been watching for whales and now that we saw the pilot whales on our crossing from the Dominican Republic, I can cross that off my list too.  I am still hoping to see some bigger whales, and, of course any other manatees that cross my path would be a welcome sight.

La Parguera was a cool little community with these awesome floating houses.  We same some similar ones in Key West, but I love the way these were just tucked up in the mangroves with a boat dock on the front porch, or even a boat garage. 





Keep your feet on the deck, your hands on the tiller, your eyes on the horizon and your beer in the fridge!  ~B.E. Marshall
