Puerto Rico’s Isla Verde Beach with the Colorado Traveling Ducks

We are going to the beach!   We ducks love all the activities and exploring in old towns, but the beach is our favorite.   Isla Verde Beach is our place today.   First we rent beach lounge chairs and umbrellas.   We have never seen this.   We pick our spot on the beach and the gentleman uses a drill with a wide, long attachment to dig a hole to secure our umbrella in the sand.   p1020784Now the umbrella is firmly anchored in the sand, but extra ropes are needed to protect our umbrella from the wind.

Since we needed two umbrellas and four chairs, how did he carry them to our favorite spot?   On this lounge chair, adapted with large sand wheels.

You can also see the drill and long attachment behind the carrying chair.  This man really knows what he is doing. The chairs are arranged, water bottles available, and we are ready for a day of sun, sand, water and fun.

Time to rent jet skis now.   Jet skis are so much fun.   Each human gets a separate jet ski.   It is more fun to drive.   Here is Bucket’s dad driving his jet ski.

Warm sun and beach activities do make humans and duck hungry and thirsty.   Not to worry.   A food stand is right behind us on the beach.

We have a lot of food now, so Bucket’s mom is sharing with some new friends.

There are many water activities available at the beach.   These are kite boards.

The kites are so colorful and look great sailing above the water.   We did not try them today.   Maybe another time.   You can see there are many people enjoying Isla Verde Beach today, but it really is not crowded.

This is a big beach.   This is our last day in Puerto Rico so we are all happy to spend it at the beach.   But we are getting hungry again.   Let’s try some real Puerto Rican food for our last evening.   Nearby at Los Platos restaurant, we order mofongos.

These are green mashed plantains.   One has chicken inside and one has beef inside.   We have a choice of white garlic sauce or Puerto Rican creole.   We tried each sauce.   Three of us had mofongos and one had a delicious fish dinner.   This meal was very tasty and a great way to end our Puerto Rican vacation.
