The kids (-Ryan) came with Cyndee to spend a week sailing with us in Puerto Rico before we head off to bring Kokoro back to Galveston. Meeka, our Chief Security Officer, came as well.

Meeka strutting through the airport…oblivious to the air travel to come!
The first day we played around the marina!

We realized quickly the fake grass was not going to fool her
Sunday we headed to Caja de Muertos , a small, very cool island near Ponce.

A roll, a roll, a roll in the sand

The lighthouse…I cannot confirm nor deny if we snuck in through a window to see the inside
Monday, about 3:30pm we began our venture to Vieques. “Oh it will be about 12 hours…”

Maggie caught the first fish!

Before the murder…yes, Maggie cried.
…then seasickness hit

21 hours later we arrived in the most beautiful part of the world any of us had ever seen.

image
Wild horses all over Vieques and Maggie thinks she is the horse whisperer!

image
We rented scooters to tour the island. Best decision!

Lunch at a cool, local hippie place! We fit right in!

No gravity in Vieques!

We had an amazing time! Sea sickness and all!

Jason cooked up the Mackrel Maggie caught. One bite and she forgot the murder scene. 

We returned to Ponce Thursday morning and took the kids to the airport  we made the decision to send Meeka home with them. We decided our first time sailing so far we didn’t need the worry of her falling over board!

…next post…sailing home!
