Still trying to catch up on everything now that I’m back from vacation, so this week’s post will be short. (I am dreading going to work! What has imploded while I’ve been gone? Eek!)

Here’s three quick videos from my vacation last week!

View of the wall of a large cistern in the River Camuy Caves.

A gurgling brook in El Yunque – protected rain forest in the middle of the island.

And my favorite! A panning shot of the beach at Luquillo. Look at that sky!

 Hopefully I will be back to normal schedule and items by next week!

heh heh!
