San Juan, Puerto Rico, is a beautiful place to vacation. Besides enjoyment of it’s warm climate, it’s a treat to walk down the colorful streets and explore the neighborhoods of the old town. Unless you’ve come to San Juan from the sea, you’ll never see what may perhaps be its greatest scene — an overview of the old fort (Castillo, or El Morro) guarding the harbor’s entrance, with the colorful city as a backdrop.
These were the views as our cruise ship left the Bay of San Juan. A storm was gathering as we left the port and headed to sea, past the well-positioned fort. The air was warm and the breeze caused by the ship’s movement was welcome. Certainly the view was hard to beat.
