Just a side note. We've been gone from home for 45 days and I've taken 1,814 pictures.
You know it is almost New Year's when you see the red and yellow underware. This year I had to go looking for it though. Usually it is on the main aisle of the store. So what is with the Red and Yellow? "Those who choose to wear red underwear on New Year’s Eve are believed to have luck in love in the coming year, while those who wear yellow are believed to have luck with money in the coming year."
Looking south towards downtown. No one on the beach at all.
The orange hibiscus bloomed this morning. About 1/2 hour later I went outside and this is all that was left. Those d@%# birds pulled it off the plant and ate it.
And they also ate one whole side of the bloom on the yellow one. If I see one he is going to get broomed! I sprayed a lite soap mixture on the plants - maybe that will keep them away.
Our bananas are doing fine. Getting bigger day by day. Do you know why bananas are curved? I just read about it the other day.
When they first start growing they are growing straight down. But then they start to curve up to get the sun. See the new little guys.
People lined up waiting to get in to the old and still open Aquarium.
The city built shelters for vendors across the street from the old aquarium. Behind the shelters is a huge parking lot for tour buses.
Leaving the Central Park and Aquarium area and back to the Malecon. We've passed this statue of the Pulmonia and rock many, many times in the years we've been here. And until someone posted about a specific part of it I never noticed. Now it sticks out like a sore thumb.
The light house is on top of the rock. Never, ever noticed it before.
Took many more pictures but will stop here for today.
