Picture Kaleidoscope 12/2/15 – Puerto Rico Edition #2

Greetings!

I was able to upload all my pics of Puerto Rico from the trip in November.

While still a work in progress with regards to moving them into sub folders, I figuired I’d share now anyway. 🙂

The album software is Piwigo. Still trying to set up all the options. The Panoramic pics won’t show, so I still need to see if I can fix that.

Main Album is Puerto Rico. This one contains pics with no specific locations but also has unsorted pics from other locations I’ve yet to move to their sub folders.

Sub folders:

Caguas – where my uncle lives.

El Morro (Most of the pics for El Morro are still in the main folder. Doh!) – Spanish Fort in San Juan

El Yunque – National Rain Forest

Guajataca – city in the northeast – we stopped by the beach there.

Hope you enjoy them!

Morning!

Figured I’d start sharing my Puerto Rico pics. Will be setting up a gallery for them all, but it’s not ready yet. These are all phone camera pics. The gillion others were with my camera. So expect all sorts of photography mayhem soon.

Heh heh heh

Puerto Rico – a property of the US. Only need a drivers license to go there. Currency is the US Dollar. Main language is Spanish.

View of a little island we spotted from the plane.

Amazing skies. Clouds are the main thing you miss when you move away from PR.

Panorama from my uncle’s house in the mountains.

More views from his porch.

He has a set of  Hibiscus bushes as a partial fence.

I love the flowers from these bushes. Always make me think of home.

View from the balcony of the condo we got to stay in overnight.

Panorama from the top of the 1st viewing tower at El Yunque – PR’s protected rain forest.

Pano of the other side on the tower.

Pano at El Morro. Spanish fort in San Juan. All the pink shirts are students on a field trip.

Different pano view from the fort.

View from El Morro looking out. Huh, something happened as this bugger looks stitched! lol.

These are Quenepas. I’d not had some in 20 years! Last two times I’d made it home, they’ve not been in season. Ran across some when we went south. YAY! You bite the green to peel off the top. Then you use the bottom half as a cup. The fruit strands are stuck to a large seed. You put it in your mouth and suck off the strands. So good!

More torture to come later. 🙂

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!
