Puerto Rico series 2009
When the kids were small we were able to spend a part of each winter out on the west coast of Puerto Rico. I always thought I would build there, but that never came to pass. I had a bicycle set up with an easel on the back and did watercolors in the field, so to speak. I built bamboo framed structures to paint under and loved spending as much time as possible outdoors.Gayle rented a fax machine and copier and was in business too. We home schooled the kids from there own bicycles, learning spanish from the old guys in the town plaza. Did any of that sink in? I don't know. I got to know the island pretty well, and particularly enjoyed exploring the high central bamboo forest.
