puerto rico: part two

The play opened on Thursday night to a sold out house and our first review is in. Breathing a sigh of relief! What a great experience I've already had and it's only the first weekend of a 5-week run. I'm so proud to be a part of such a talented group of actors. Now I can catch up on creating other things that make me happy like sharing the rest of our Puerto Rico trip.

We left Old San Juan on January 2 and drove about 2 1/2 hours to Cabo Rojo which is on the southwest side of Puerto Rico. This side of PR turned out to be our favorite part of the island- the beaches were beautiful and it had a relaxed, yet fun and local vibe. We rented an apartment through AirBnb and spent the next few days celebrating year five, lounging at the beach, reading, sampling the local cuisine and drinking the local drinks.

What I wouldn't give right now to be at the beach reading a book and sipping on a pina colada! Is winter over yet?
