It’s all gone a bit Bernard Matthews

Just got back from an amazing trip to Puerto Rico. Highlights were a trip to Arecibo Radio Observatory (as seen in Goldeneye), a tropical rainstorm in Rincon (29 inches of rain fell that day) and the island of Culebra. Culebra, an island of 2000 people and only 250 hotel rooms, is absolutely beautiful. First day we arrived Tim and I went to Soni beach on the north side of the island. Half a mile of white sandy beach deserted apart from us and 3 surfers. Saw turtle tracks in the sand where they’d laid their eggs.. This led to me spending last Friday night on a starlit Brava beach watching 8 foot leatherback turtles lay hundreds of eggs. This was all backed up by shooting stars and phosphorescent algae, streaking green in the breaking waves and little dots of blue phosphorescent creatures on the sand. Truely one of the most amazing nights of my life. Thanks to Amy in Bar 119 (again) for the recommendation!

On a side note, here’s my house on an arial photo – it should be right in the centre, a large square blob.

ps, Expect scanned in photos soon (none of turtles – not allowed flashes) and the Bernard Matthews reference can be explained by any handy Brit…
