Pictured here is an IPA called the Swamp Ape, brewed by the Florida Beer Company out of Melbourne, Florida:



This is my first use of the awesome Florida Track Club pint glass that I earned for my performance in the 2011 Tom Walker Half Marathon.

Next time I'll try something from the award-winning Gainesville local Swamp Head Brewery.

Last week I met my extended family in Blowing Rock, North Carolina for a week of vacation in the mountains. It turns out that Blowing Rock is a really nice area and a great place to make a "home base" for attractions near Grandfather Mountain, Boone, and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

We had great views from our mountain rental home:

As mentioned in my other posts about hiking in the rainforest and Old San Juan, my wife and I took a trip to Puerto Rico for our 10-year anniversary.

We stayed at the Wyndham Rio Mar Beach Resort which is perfectly located near San Juan, the northeast coast beaches (and ferry to Isla de Culebra), bio-luminescent bay kayak trips, and El Yunque National Rainforest.

We had an awesome view from our room:





One day during our stay, we took the ferry over to the Island of Culebra:

We spent one day walking around old San Juan. It is truly a beautiful city.

This painting is on the outside of the Catedral de San Juan:



The scale of the city wall and fortifications is immense compared to anything I had seen before. Structures such as Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida pale in comparison.

Here is Kristen outside the massive city wall:

Last month I went on vacation with my wife to Puerto Rico for our 10-year anniversary. We stayed at the Rio Del Mar Resort which is perfectly located near San Juan, the northeast coast beaches (and ferry to Isla de Culebra), the bio-luminescent bays, and El Yunque National Rainforest.

I loved the rainforest! I hiked in my huarache sandals which was nice because it was very warm (and wet).

Here is a photo of me glad to be back to the top of La Coca trail:



The trail begins at an elevation of 1476 feet and begins a steep descent, and goes down, down and down. This picture shows one steep and rocky section:
