I went to San Juan to visit Kenan and Sarah, as well as to check out my beaches. All in all it was a wonderful trip, although quite brief. I was convinced to sign up for a conference that will be happening in February though, so I won't be away from the island for long.
I walked from Shannon Point to the ferry both on the way there and back. It was a beautiful and simple walk on the way there (the tide was out). The way back was an entirely different matter. It was high tide (as well as being 7am) and I had quite the adventure attempting to get back to spmc. I spent the first 10 minutes on the beach, which wasn't so bad (I was wearing my boots) but at one point I decided to try out a "path" through the woods. This ended up with me in the middle of a devils club patch...at which point I thrashed my way back to the beach. Water is much less of an evil then devils club.
Ok...I am procrastinating on a paper I need to be writing, so I suppose I should get back to that. ugh.
