    Default PARADISE! Rincon, Puerto Rico



    After a crazy last few days packing, we finally arrived in Rincon, on the northwest coast of Puerto Rico, a territory of the U.S. and an island bearing a small slice of pure heaven in the Caribbean between Cuba and the Dominican Republic (basic location). Here are a few photos I shot randomly in front of our beachhouse over the past week. It's taken me forever to get the laptop/camera thing worked out, so I apologize for the delay, but I hope you enjoy....

    I had always wanted to visit there....thanks for the pictures. It looks like you found a little slice of paradise to visit! Hope you enjoy your vacation and send us a few more of these amazing pictures. I buy orchids from Puerto Rico from time to time...have you looked up any orchid vendors? I'd imagine that would be a fun shopping excursion!

    Great shots (as any of us would expect!), Maura. The third one with the glorious sunrise/sunset is incredible. You captured it so well.

    Haven't found any orchid places here yet - if you know any, can you pm me?

    Thanks, Patty - we face due west, so it's sunset - and I can't seem to keep myself from trying to capture every single one. You'll be sick of my "sunset series" before long, but it's SO hard to do it justice!
