The Sun Doth Shineth

and we were most happy
Driving to Rincon of the Seas from San Juan, Puerto Rico
We arrived when it was dark and the first impression was my ears being assaulted with loud twitterings in the lobby, in the hallways, in the gardens outside our room.

I and another guest were convinced it was a looped recording to add ambiance to the place (as if it needed it lol). I thought it would drive me bonkers if I had to listen to this all the time. By morning it was gone, but the next day as soon as it got dark it started up. After a couple of days I asked the maid and she explained it's not parrots or a recording and had a good laugh at my confusion.

Nope, not parrots, but this little fella called a Coqui.
tree frogs about 1 inch long
and NO it didn't drive me bonkers I quickly learned to enjoy their serenade each evening.

drbrina, originally my husband got a room on the 3rd floor with a tiny balcony even though the hotel offered him the bottom floor. I corrected that lol! It was lovely to sit reading on the porch looking at this view and I got to hear my room maid sing Feliz Navidad each morning and give me a BIG smile.

colette, we are back and experiencing a new view with a lot of white in it. Cream Sherry here I come.

Arts Woman, I grew to so enjoy their racket each evening lol!

christine, Undaunted, a little sunshine sure is lovely isn't it. I am bugging my husband now to go to more conferences during the winter months LOL!
