Practice for summer
This was a practice weekend for summer, a warm-up if you will.
This week and weekend were the schools' spring break here. We had great weather. Most everybody was off work at least Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It all adds up to packed beaches. Jobos was jammed all weekend. It was almost impossible to get throughthe Jobos area in a car, a precurser to what summer will be like with the beach parking area closed and everybody parking on the roadside. Saturday was the busiest, most crowed day at Shacks. Because we were open Saturday, I didn't have time to KAP the beach on Saturday. The photo above is from early Friday afternoon.
I also got a chance to KAP some kite surfers Friday. There are more new pictures on Flickr and on PuertoRicoSurfPhoto.com.
We took the day off on Sunday for the holiday. I hoped there would be more people on the beach and more kite surfers. But the wind was a little light for kite surfers and by Sunday afternoon, much of the crowd was headed home. So, for the most part, it was a quiet kinda lazy day.
Elaine and I did go to the beach to watch the sunset. For the first time - for either of us - we got to see the "green flash" just as the sun disappeared below the horizon. It was AWESOME! It is literally a flash, less than a blink. But so cool! What an way to end a laid-back day!
