Puerto Rico, Here I Come!

I've been promising Karen that I would come visit again ever since she moved there in 2002. She keeps saying that she'll believe it when she sees it. Well, I hope she's looking, 'cause I'm on my way! I land in San Juan on the 5th of August and will be there until the 19th. Karen has arranged for me to house sit while I'm there which will pay for most of my plane ticket. She manages 17 vacation homes on the island of Vieques and the owners of one want a house sitter for a couple of weeks. Vieques is about 20 miles long and 5 miles wide and is absolutely beautiful. Most of the tourists get no further than the main island so Vieques is very quiet and there really are no crowds on the beaches. Karen has even offered to put me to work while I'm there just in case I don't want to lay around on the beach every day. So I guess this will be sort of a working vacation. What a deal!! And a great way to end the summer!

There are many of us up in Seattle who would LOVE to be in Vieques right now. I'm glad you'll recover soon enough to go!

Oh yeah, BTW...Luke ate 50 eggs, and won him some money if I remember.

Oooo, you have quite the busy schedule coming up! What a great way to spend the rest of the summer!

And that Luke would be of the "Cool Hand" persuasion, too. ;)

Well yippee!! and if any of you here want to join her, the house has lots of room. Just make the flight plans. I promise not to work her too hard. I just thought she could use some garden time. I'm thrilled to be one of the last she visits before the rest of this amazing adventure. Hugs, Karen
