After two days on the beach, I wanted to see more of the historic part of town and found my way to Old San Juan. I fell in love immediately, over breakfast of a Mallorca sandwich and coffee.

I wore this flirty blue dress by Abacaxi NYC, but the breeze was so strong that it kept pulling up my dress every few steps, as you can see from the photos. No matter, because I always wore a bathing suit underneath my outfit. The ruffle skirt derail is so cute and I actually liked all the movement in the dress.

I tired easily from the heat and walking around Old San Juan, so I spent some time sitting in a bar facing the street drinking cold beer. Watching the passersby strolling and dancing to the music paying the roads, it was a welcome form of relaxation unlike most in NYC.

Feeling refreshed, I found my way to a fortress near the beach. Walking along the shore, I came across some more abandoned old stones, as well a little hut by the sea. Eventually I ended up back at Condado, where I met some friends. We ate beach food along the shore, went boating, and found a spot to anchor and swim in the water.

At day's end, it was time for dinner and drinks. I had an excellent seafood mofongo, with whiskey at a dive bar afterward.

Worn out from my jaunt across the island, I headed back to Rio Piedras to lay my head down and sleep against the backdrop of once again chirping birds in the backyard.
