Wear Sunblock, Be Happy & Don't Worry
This is my granddaughter Avery and she is the best little traveler. We lathered her in sunblock and she still tans so beautifully and too easily. Most definitely a Coppertone baby.
Puerto Rico is pretty close to the Equator (1277 miles) Texas (7942 miles) and the sun is shining brightly at 5:30 a.m.
Forget your Hairstyle & Bring Your Teddy
Puerto Rico falls in the tropical climate zone and there is no way you can keep your curls in place.
Oh, and even Teddy deserves a trip to the beach, in the sand and ocean too.
(Wouldn't you agree....)
Quiet water, quiet times with baby and Mimi.
Searching for sea glass is great fun and when you gather up enough of the muliti colored and tumbled glass you can even make sea-glass jewelry .
We traveled to Old San Juan twice while I was visiting, however on this particular day we combed the beach at San Juan Antiguo-Puerta De Tierra for sea glass.
It is a mesmerizing and relaxing project.
A great way to sift through the sand in search of sea glass is to use colanders.
Always wear a Hat
Protect you eyes, hair and face from the intense sun.
I will be sharing a few more posts on Puerto Rico which will include a little shopping, some of the History, Churches, and some hands on crafts that Amanda did using natural finds from the Island.
I can't wait to show how to make your own sea grape leaf coaster!
Thank you sweet family for making this Mimi feel so loved and I might add young!
Of course Ponce De Leon is buried on this Island of enchantment and you do know he had inside information on the fountain of youth!
Thanks for joining me!
