Living The Island Life ~🌴

The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the
 imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul...

The Caribbean Sea is one of the world's largest
 at roughly 1,063,000 square miles in size. The Caribbean Sea 
is home to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef - the second largest
 barrier reef in the world. It is what we look out to every day 
from our balcony.  All paths lead to the Caribbean Sea.

For now the backdrop of the beautiful island is where we call home.  For now.

Puerto Rico is full of tiny and not so tiny islands. 
 From our balcony we see quite a few of these islands.  
Looking forward to discovering them one day. 
 As soon as we are done organizing our place.

Arvid loves the white sand beaches so do I, but
 I also find beauty in a beach with character.  A few 
pebbles, shells and what not.  Here you find all 
of that at times in the same strip of beach.

When it comes to a beach, you find whatever it is 
you desire, as long as you know where to look.  Even the
 most beat up of paths lead to beautiful destinations.

One thing though that is still difficult to process, 
its seeing people on the beach in bathing suits wearing a
 mask.  As of today it is still the mandate here in Puerto Rico.  
Restrictions are slowly being lifted, but the mask might 
still be mandated for quite some time to come.

Sunday.  Very peaceful, and no matter where we are 
some routines are meant to stay😍  Soon it's time for
 Arvid to call his family and give them the news.  If they
 are like mine, they won't be surprised. Arvid loves 
his surprises 😏.  Not I.  I like to know always.

Happy Sunday all.  As someone said, "life is short, 
live it where the water meets the sand."

Life takes you down many paths, but my favorite ones lead to 
the beach.  Paradise is anywhere you can write in the sand...
