Puerto Rico Retreat Experience
Hola! and Welcome back, my friends!
Thank you ALL for the support, well wishes and love you sent my way whilst on my journey. And a journey and experience it was! A GREAT one at that! There were a few hiccups along the way – but everything worked itself out and was great.
My flight to Rincon, Puerto Rico got in around 3 a.m. on Wednesday, August 28th. My fabulous taxi driver, Elier Lopez, was waiting for me in the airport and whisked me to the house where the retreat was being held – Casa Azul.
It was 4 a.m. till we arrived and to our surprise, the electricity was OUT in the whole neighborhood. WHAT! Luckily, I had slipped a mini flash light into my suitcase and pulled it out to be able to see how to get into the house (I had a key) and maneuver with ease. My flight was the first one IN that day, so I was by myself in the house till around 10 or so till the other leaders (Jackie, Fern and Willa) arrived. Elier had talked to me in the car ride about how layed back, safe and friendly the people were. So, being in a strange house, in a strange town, I really felt OK and at peace. I chose a room and crashed for a few hours. Power came back on by early afternoon – so no worries.
Here are some of the views I took pictures of from the back porch of house – right off the kitchen.
The weather was absolutely PERFECT the whole time! Some afternoon showers – then cleared up and was lovely. I could live here during the winter – nice and warm!That is a hawk in the left hand corner that was flying around the porch and then flew off into the distance. A good sign for me!
