Tropical Salty Impromptu Meetup: Vieques August 15, 2008 9:40 PM   Subscribe

Impromptu meetup in Esperanza, Vieques, Puerto Rico?

I'm in Esperanza until Wednesday morning. I'd like to crack open a can of Medalla Light and dip my feet in the warm waters on the Malecon in Esperanza with any MeFites who happen to be on the island. I'm thinking Monday August 18 sometime, whatever works for you. Any takers?

Gawd, I'd love to fly to San Juan, take a cab out to Fajardo, and then take the ferry over to Vieques for a meetup. ;)

We were there last September and absolutely loved it. Can't wait to go back.

My parents live there, but 1. It is their winter home (and it is summer) and 2. They don't even know Mefi exists.

Good luck.

Esperanza, you say? I'm SO there! I'll meet you at 2-ish at the large pier tomorrow! You bring the breadfruit, I'll bring the beer and a camera, and we can listen to the Reggaeton blaring from someone's Jeep, for sure. See you there, n_o_d!

I am wearing my shirt I got from Nales Gravero y Ferreteria and cursing you both as the rain pours down outside my Pacific NW home. Say hi to the Malecon for me!

*"both" because I didn't, for a minute, realize that you were hanging out with one of your other personalities.

What an awesome meetup! It's OK you forgot the beer, n_o_d; the ice water was much more refreshing! And excellent execution of the flip off the pier... I was impressed!

I'll post the pics when I get home, back to a non dial-up connection. We must do that again next time you're here. Maybe bodysurfing at Navio Beach?

Great to meet you! :)

Who needs a sockpuppet, anyway?

Did you get a chance to go to the color-coded beaches? Red, blue, etc? AKA Caracas, Plato, Pato Negro....They are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, IMHO. Not quite as pretty as Flamingo Beach on the sister island of Culebra, but amazing nonetheless.

I've been to Red Beach, but none of the others. This time around, I just hung out in Esperanza and the beaches immediately surrounding it. Meetup pix to come, when I have time to scoop them off the camera!

The one pic from the meetup is UP! It's the one taken right before I pushed n_o_d off the pier. Great meeting y'all again!

I dunno, n_o_d, I think that meetup pic is a double.

Can we get a mod in here to delete this?
