TWO MAGICAL DAYS IN OLD SAN JUAN

A guided walking tour!

The dictionary lists the second meaning of “magical” as “beautiful or delightful in such a way as to seem removed from everyday life.”  This is precisely the feeling I get from spending time in Old San Juan. It is all at once a delightful mix of ancient, historical, modern, urban and tropical.  It is brimming with art, music, architecture, food, and drinks.  And its people add the final sprinkle of pixie dust to the scene with their warmth and hospitality.

  • As a traveler and a former retailer, I still love to shop when I visit a new place. Sadly, the opportunities to find good shopping are few and far between so when I discover a gem, I like to give them a shout out.  Clearwater Beach shopping is a sea of bad tee-shirt and surf shops with the exception of this fun and sporty shop ... Clearwater Beach Paddleboard & Rental.  Don’t let the name fool you. This is the place for fun beach inspired gifts, cool outdoorsy gear (best brands), and ukuleles.  I bought a much needed waterproof backpack for my upcoming trip to Puerto Rico. You can, of course, also rent stuff (a lot of stuff) which is icing on your vacation cake. 
I also want to take my hat off (pun intended) to the village of Dunedin, Florida. SOMEHOW I failed to take a picture! Dunedin is still a strong hold of independently owned boutiques and gift shops. Each one making an effort to delight their customers with their unique offerings.  My sister and I knocked out a little Christmas shopping there last week.

  • No better artist than Mother Nature!  I see music and dance in her work this morning.  What do you see?
