Dusk beach walk, Rincon Puerto Rico
Last evening we had several friends over from San Juan. This was their first trip to Rincon and so we took them out for a walk on the beach... as the sun was setting before heading out for dinner. Walking east from the Lemontree leads one to broader sand beaches but walking west leads one to a rocky beach which is occasionally impassable if the surf is up. Last night the water was calm and so we walked the rocky beach. Its remarkable how within the space of several hundred yards the beach changes so dramatically. In Puerto Rico all beaches are public and we limit ourselves unnecessarily to confine our explorations to what is immediately in front of us. Rincon is a town of beaches... and a few minutes and steps away is a new world.
