We knew we were booking a trip in the islands on the edge of hurricane season or "the rainy season" as people call it here in Puerto Rico. We figured the worst thing that could happen is we would experience a hurricane in the tropics and frankly we have lived through hurricanes before and the thought did not worry us.
Welcome hurricane Irene. The storm was really not that bad at all. The singing of the coqui was magical last night and the waves were beautiful. I got a little nervous when the glass door was shaking but it didn't last too long. There was a lot of water on the floor this morning but the hotel is taking good care of us and it seems the worst is past us. The worst part is there will be no swimming in the ocean for a few days. The rip tides could be dangerous but we are looking forward to seeing what the storm washed up on the beach.
Yesterday morning before the storm we visited the amazing Rio Camuy Caves. Here are two phone pictures just for fun.
