Puerto Rico, Day 1 & 2 - WIVV

We traveled back to Puerto Rico last spring but I'm only now going through all the pictures and remembering what a great trip it was.

After arriving in San Juan and spending the night at my mother-in-law's, we then took a small propeller plane to the island of Vieques.  The flight was only about 10 minutes long and allowed us to avoid a long and often unreliable ferry ride.

We rented a car and drove into town to a really nice guest house called Casa de Amistad.

Later we took a short drive to El Fortin Conde de Mirasol, a Spanish fort built in 1845 to defend the island against European and South American enemies.  The structure was restored in 1991 and now houses the Vieques Museum of Art and the Vieques Historic Archives.

It was lunchtime so we drove to Esperanza on the south side of the island for some eats and a beer.

On the way back we stopped at Sun Bay beach.

WIVV (West Indies Voice of Victory) is a Religious station licensed to Vieques, Puerto Rico.  It became the first full-time Christian radio station in the Caribbean when they went on the air in 1956.
