Day 2: San Juan
Ate breakfast at the 801 restaurant in our hotel. We lied to our hotel saying that our "friends" met up with us at the hotel so we needed them to keep all our luggage. But really we all stayed at the hotel and shared a room and only told them that two of us were staying there because they charged extra if 4 adults were in a room and we are cheap young college student couples. After breakfast we headed to the San Juan Fort. Yes, it sounds boring and historical which is totally usually not me BUT it was really interesting and you could look out over all of San Juan and see all the pretty views.
I'll let Matson introduce to you about it and let T* tell you about pretty much our whole trip of dumb taxi drivers in the video below:
|We were just about to go in the first tunnel of the fortress. Low ceilings..|
|My husband is reallllly great at opening his eyes in pictures. NOT. I think we have just 10 of these from this trip.|
|All these cannon balls piled on top of each other=a manly picture?|
|All of the tunnels and archways were very short. Matson loved that he was super close to hitting it, made him feel tall.|
|A well in the fortress. Started to make me think about drinking out of it. Yuck, thank you modern pipes and plumbing!|
|They locked me in this dungeon room where some explorer guy was locked in and drew ships all on the walls.|
|On the walk over we looked down and saw this really cool basketball court. Matson wished there was like a hard core game going on to watch.|
|Me in front of El Morro. In the field behind me there were a lot of people flying kites and picnicing (I know not a word but I use it).|
|My disrespectful husband mimicking Mary in this picture. We took this fast because we did not want to get in trouble from an old Puerto Rican woman.|
|Matson and I sitting on the wall of El Morro looking at the ocean.|
|A cannon...rusted and old but still cool.|
|Matson and I in front of the Carnival Victory|
We ate dinner with our swim clothes on because our luggage did not get up to our rooms on time for dinner kind of annoying to be in yucky clothes at a nice dinner but it was ok we did not sit in our normal spots that night because the first night was a little more casual you could do what you want. So our waiter that night was Jimmy and he teased us to death all night. One time he came over with a plate and asked C*, "did you have the chicken tenders?" and C* was all "uh...no. Who got chicken tenders?" Then all of us shook our heads no and thought oh no there is a mess up. Then Jimmy places the plate in front of C* and we all started laughing because it was the fish that C* order, Jimmy was just messing with us!
|We were all out on the deck after dinner when the ship was leaving the port.|
|Matson loves nighttime lights and such so he (I guess we) enjoyed looking at San Juan at night.|
(Get your announcer voices out again people) Next on Every Saturday is Waffle Day you will come along and learn about one of our favorite days of the trip in St. Thomas!
