I (sort of!) turn off my cell phone and rent a house on a tiny island off of Puerto Rico, called Vieques. I think this was my seventh year in a row visiting this magical place. There is very little internet, no TV and some great island food.
It’s a tiny, not fancy island of about 8 square miles and it’s heaven.
I thought I would share some pictures of my week there. Be warned: I didn’t shave the whole time and honestly packed a handful of tee shirts and shorts and a swimsuit. Oh, and sunglasses and a tooth brush!! (LOL Not a suit and tie to be found!!)
This house is called Casa Angular…for good reason!
Our spectacular view!
Our 10 minutes of rain each morning. You can see the blue sky across the valley.
This trip came at just the right time for me. I really enjoyed having time to rest and reflect.
The only shoes I brought with me…Birkenstocks!
Lunch at our favorite family style café
Another favorite place for lunch right on the beach serves fresh coconut water and the most delicious fish tacos. The owner catches his fish in the morning and serves them for lunch.
A walk through the harbor after lunch. Look at that water!!!
I actually made “tostones” for breakfast. These fried great plantains are delicious!
Most breakfasts were healthy local fruit and yogurt!
The house we stay in is up in the mountains and very private. The only sign of life was a herd of cattle and the occasional goat that came up the drive every morning!
Hundreds of gorgeous wild horses roam the island and the beaches. They’re very tame and so beautiful.
Color inspiration everywhere!
Well, always nice to find a new bee design!
The most beautiful blue water!
Waiting for the plane home at the airport “café”!! And no, I didn’t shave the entire week!
I hope you allow yourself a little downtime occasionally. I find it restores my energy and my creativity.
