...The Face of the Earth.
Holy fishsticks, I'm baaack! Sorry I just totally vanished there on you guys. Like I said, my compy is undergoing repairs and I went on vacation to Puerto Rico for the past week, and, unfortunately, I HAD NO COMPUTER. NONE. NOT EVEN MS WORD, MUCH LESS Teh Internets. Eek, I nearly went mad. So now I return with one thing to report.
Basically, I spent the entire week being bored out of my skin, because I couldn't for the life of me find a bookstore and I NEED TO READ. Also, we were there with my stepmom's parents, so there wasn't much hiking or snorkeling that we could do. And, don't get me wrong, I could spend my life at the beach, but (it being December and all) the water was just a bit too cold to swim in, and thus, along with the absence of reading material and computers, I wasn't really sure what to do with myself. But no matter. The weather was amazing and I love palm trees. And I saw a magnificent frigatebird, which was pretty awesome.
BUT, the thing which pretty much made up for a week of boredom was what my stepmom, her mom, my brother and I did the last night we were there. OH MY GOD.
We went on a night kayaking trip to La Parguera, one of the four brightest bioluminescent bays in the world (one is artificial in Japan, and the other has been polluted badly and doesn't glow much anymore). But, OMGOMGOMG holy crap it was GORGEOUS!!! A certain type of plankton in the water glows when disturbed: so every time your paddle hit the water or you stuck your hand in or a fish swam by. The fish were the best part, I think. There were schools of little shrimps and minnows in the water of the lagoon, and if you hit your kayak with your paddle they'd all get scared and all the water within three yards would light up. It was REALLY COOL. I could go on an on, but suffice it to say that it was a fantastic experience, and if you ever get the chance you should DEFINATELY GO.
Other than that, things is good, and I am finishing the pic as we speak. So, happy new year everybody, and have a great rest-of-break!
