A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

El Yunque Rain Forest and Beyond 

Finishing out our stay in Puerto Rico (back on the big island yesterday), we hiked the 3.6 mile  trek into the rain forest since we couldn’t hike to the peak due to construction vehicles up on the mountain. However, Laura and I felt maybe it was a wee bit more exciting to traverse through a muddy and rocky trail with flora and fauna smacking us in the face (as well as spider webs) as we climbed and descended down to the river. We were thankful to complete two good hikes while on this trip; first one going to Rasaca Beach in Culebra, and today, on the big island of PR. 

Getting back yesterday, we took the 45 minute ferry ride back to PR for $2.25 per person, and so worth it to "get in a cruise" on the Caribbean Sea! Our day ended with seeing the Bioluminescent Bay/Grande Laguna where the plankton "lights" up the water for a second. The water needs to keep moving to see the light. Super cool for sure and glad we got that adventure in (most tours were sold out!)



Photos are in the comments... it’s the only way I can post them. Thank you for checking them out.
