Siblings becoming best friends

Sometimes I look at my kids and get chocked up a little.  Where did the time go?  My babies are running around, playing with each other, laughing and becoming best friends.  It used to be where an afternoon spent in the back yard meant me holding them in my arms, reading a book or singing to them softly.  Now, they’re independent, older, not just walker/talkers but kids.  And as they run around, I can feel my heart soar with gladness and wrench with a bit of sadness.  I miss my little babies, but I love these awesome kids to the moon and back!!!

Touring Puerto Rico

Dear Epic Readers,

I hope this post finds you well. As promised, here is the fifth and final issue in my Travel Tuesdays series. So grab a pirate’s punch and let’s hoist off on an epic adventure to stunning San Juan Puerto Rico.

Located in the Caribbean, nestled between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, and just east of the Dominican Republic is the beautiful island of Puerto Rico.  Historically speaking, this island is a colourful cultural and racial mix of Spanish, Taínos and African.  The Taíno Indians who inhabited the territory, called the island Boriken or Borinquen which translates: “land of the great lords” or “the great land of the valiant and noble Lord”.  A little fun fact is that San Juan named for (St. John the Baptist), was the name of the island and and the town was called Puerto Rico.  It was only later that these two were switched.

In San Juan, we chose to go on the Old and New tour of the city and it was exceptional.  Even though it was an overcast and rainy day we still had a blast exploring the town.  Our guide Charlie had a wealth of knowledge about the people and places of Puerto Rico that kept us thoroughly engaged.  We explored the tunnels and other defenses of the 17th-century military fortification, Fort San Cristobal.  We visited the Cristo Chapel, the Governor’s Mansion and other historical sites.  We checked out San Jose Church, El Convento Hotel, the Condado section of New San Juan, and popped by the gated community where Ricky Martin’s parents live! 

Here are some of the most exciting highlights of the island:

  • The Vieques Biobay (go kayaking then take a swim in the green, glowing bioluminescent bay)
  • Camuy Caves (rappel down the mouth of the cave, go mud-sliding, body rafting, and free jumping)
  • Old and New San Juan Tour (interesting architecture and fascinating oral history of the island) 

Cheers,

From the beautiful island Puerto Rico,

Char a.k.a Epic Mom
