Torches & Prayer in Old San Juan05/15/2012
Women and children walked with torches through the streets...praying for the troops in El Morro, but the British mistook them for approaching Spanish troops - and RAN!

A coffee Hacienda plus plus05/12/2012, Hacienda Pomarosa
Located within a mile of the highest mountain of Puerto Rico, Hacienda Pomarrosa has been a wonderful retreat in many ways: so peaceful, with only tree frogs at night, a wonderful breakfast after a very comfortable nights sleep. Kurt, the owner gave us a wonderful history of coffee ending with a tour of his farm and processing facilities. His coffee is better than any we've tasted... Clearly you can taste the care and love he gives each bean.
Beautiful so farBill

While we motored, even though we were bouncing up and down, the girls enjoyed sitting up on the dinghy, which is stored upside down on the bow during short passages.

Isobel helps transfer eggs from the cartons that are sold in the DR to our saved boxes that fit under the floor. Amongst other things she is the egg girl. In addition to being able to crack an egg one handed, she is in charge of storing them and retrieving them. They are stored under the floor boards and above the water tank... a perfect height for the egg cartons we have.
Coffee in the mountains05/02/2012, Jarabacoa, dr
This is the Jimenoa Water fall near Jarabacoa, DR. Just below this one of the biggest hydropower plants in the DR. Isobel slept through the entire hike, up and down... to wake up when we returned the car... "where's the water fall?"
Green and water falls04/30/2012, Jarabacoa, DR
The view out the hotel window is pretty great. Although much of the mountains we deforested, much of it has been replanted with Coffee or fruits.
