Time for a holiday...

Although life aboard a boat in the Caribbean might seem like one long holiday to some, there’s always an on-going jobs list and concerns regarding weather, anchorages, communications and general bureaucracy that make off-boat time a welcome break.  And so we decided to treat ourselves to some skiing in the Rockies.


The best flight connections to the USA were out of Puerto Rico and we found a safe berth for Macushla at the Puerto del Rey Marina on the east coast of Puerto Rico.


Before flying out we decided to spend a few days exploring old San Juan and booked a perfectly located hotel in the middle of the old town.  We had a great time wandering through the blue, cobbled streets soaking up the atmosphere.  The numerous stray cats are well cared for by the local ‘Save a Gato’ organisation and can be found all over the city.
