Please KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS that we stay safe and it goes by fast.

#Campfire after hurricane Irma.

A post shared by @naramilee on

A post shared by @naramilee on

Last week, after hurricane Irma passed some miles from the coast of San Juan (it was prognosticated to pass about twenty miles from our coast, but it went up a bit and at the moment I don’t have the actual number – just know that we felt it weaker than expected and knew it was going upwards and at that point? We are mighty glad it was going away) we are left with no power service for four days.

I personally think that’s very reasonable, given the fact that the state of the power system of the island is terrible (refer to last year’s three day total outage) but, to preserve our fridge things (and to feed his TV addiction) my father found a generator. That made things feel more normal during those four days – although it did not worked for the A/C and I slept four to five hours each of those nights – we had most of our powered commodities available.

Even then, I confirmed my theory that the best thing to do during those situations is go outside. Nothing beats the old fashioned fun of gardening, running, and helping each other out.

While cleaning the road of branches, Little J had the awesome idea of making a campfire. It was her first but we all enjoyed it as if it was our first too. The sky looked beautiful and the breeze felt so good outside.

It was a beautiful moment of calm after the storm.

I'm in the middle of the water! I'm not! I loved this angle.

Mist falling. Birds singing.

A post shared by @naramilee on

I stopped in the worst road ever to take this pic because I just had to. It looks like I’m levitating on top of this river because of my amazing flying powers I’m standing on the side of the road! Isn’t that cool?!

There’s a sort of cement “step” right on the edge and it almost looks like you can just step into shallow water but the trick is, that’s actually deep! Not like ten feet, but deep enough that you would go “WHAAAAAAAA” if you actually stepped in.

Palm tree leaf under eclipse sun. #green #palmtree

A post shared by @naramilee on

As I stated in the description, this is how a palm tree leaf looked under the eclipse sun. Over here we had an 80% eclipse; I planned to look at the TV transmit ion and go outside to enjoy the subdued light. When the eclipse was at it’s peak I got so exited to see the sun of around 6PM so high in the sky!

The most amazing thing was to not feel the heat of the light on you, it was like standing under a yellow lamp. The temperature dropped a couple of degrees and it was simply delightful to soak it in, without feeling like you were melting.

Of course, the states that had a total eclipse had a much more dramatic experience, but I was disappointed to find that most people were recording the actual sun view and not their ‘Earth’ view, which is what I wanted to see, I wanted to see the darkness falling and then lifting.

Did you had an experience with the eclipse? Share!

#Algae on the street. #dock

A post shared by @naramilee on

I literally drove to the last bit of land on the west today, and then back. Four hours total. Actually more because high traffic was yay.

Sorry for the delay, I had programmed the trip for tomorrow. Have a beautiful day!

Stayed in the Hardcore Country Life, in a different house of course, last weekend and this friend was right beside my bed.

I’m late on my rounds to comment on each blog, please excuse me; this is back-to-school week for us and it’s been very exiting! So much that the to-do list still has items from last week 🙂 I will be leaving my comments later, but I did see your participations and whoa. I love how my photo pales in comparison with all yours. Seriously.

Metal against the sky. #NoFilter

A post shared by @naramilee on

Whoever has been to Culebras or Vieques has seen this structure over their cars at some point. I have no idea what it is or what’s it doing there, but I’ve been intrigued by it since I was a kid. 

 

Check out last week’s AWESOME participations!  THANKS to everyone who shared.

Another visit to the nursery. And a bloom I found in a special garden.

A post shared by @naramilee on

I had never seen this shrub’s bloom before, so when I found this on a tour, I was the only person stopped in the trail to take a pic of the red flower.
Rest of the pics from the nursery. Happy to report plants bought last time are still alive and this time we got berries.

Check out last weeks participants! THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO SHARED YOUR POST!
