Our transatlantic cruise started in San Juan. Yes, I realize I’ve ended this backwards. In fact, this will be the last post regarding our transatlantic cruise. We’ve actually been to San Juan many times. San Juan is a beautiful city with brightly colored buildings butting up against the blue sea. San Juan has several old Spanish forts which reach into the Atlantic Ocean and make a fantastic sail away at night.
While in San Juan, we like to walk around Old Town. It is where the majority of history lies. The city paints it’s buildings all the colors of the rainbow. In fact it feels as if you are inside the rainbow looking out at the sky.

Coming up: The trail: Late Fall.– The images of the trail I caught today while on a short walk.
Such beautiful clear blue skys, great shots
Thank you Bren.
Saving the best till last eh? Quite obvious you adore this place – never been but it looks a must!
It’s a nice place. It seems we are taking cruises from here or stopping here on a cruise.
think you have some good stuff here, especially the blue, rest and fountain shots
Thanks. I am glad you like those.
Wow…the color, the composition. Nice set!
A very pretty city through your camea lens. Like these pics a lot.
PR is very beautiful and may become our 51st state one day.
Yes, I just read about that possibility not long ago. That would be great.
🙂 I don’t know how long it will take.
Cruisin’ the Med I take it? Excellent photos
Quite simply – loving your work… 🙂
Thanks Tefal head.
You have a great gift. What you say and see and capture on film resonates so much with me. Thank you for sharing! Thank you, also for stopping by and liking my blog:-)
Thanks Jan! Such nice words, you made my day.
Ahh! San Juan, I remember her fondly. Had a great time there! Great pictures man. I miss those colors of the city.
Thanks Tony. When and for how long did you visit PR?
The Mrs. and I were there 5 years ago. Our cruise started there. We stayed 2 nights.
Yes, the times we’ve been have been on a cruise or to start a cruise.
I love the door!
It’s a nice door. Looks of character.
Wonderful stuff. Have you tried the colours and beauty of Newfoundland I wonder (never in winter of course)
Never. But I would love to visit there someday. It is actually one of the places I have on my list to go. I am sure there are lots of good camping sites up there. Todd loves to camp and while I am not as keen on it as he is, I can be persuaded if it is in a great photographic area like Newfoundland.
WOW! Your work is absolutely delightful Seth. I shared your new calendar on my wordpress page. Hope that is okay! It must be incredibly satisfying when you have so many lovely things around to photograph. Now, I want to see San Juann.
Yes! Thanks so much. I am glad you shared the calendar. And, thanks so much for your kind words. San Juan is very nice as is the rest of PR.
Oops typo there! Sorry!
One of my favorite places in the whole world. Have a great time!
I did have a fabulous time. This was from a few trips back. Thanks for visiting.
Great shots! Sounds like a really fun adventure, and the place looks beautiful.
Yes, very nice. thanks Gracie.
Absolutely beautiful photos Seth…
Thanks so much for your kind words. I am glad you enjoyed the photos.
Dude I am from Puerto Rico, and well my family lives there! awesome pictures!
Thanks Jorge. A good friend of mine is also from PR. Her mother met us on one of our trips before our cruise. She showed us around and took us out to eat. Very nice!
Thats awesome, I hope you enjoyed it!
I did. 🙂
I don’t know if you had photoshopped some of them heavily, but it all looks so bright! i love bright colours and I’d really like to go there. awesome.
I don’t use Photoshop. But, I used the program that came with the camera. I just used normal enhancements. Thanks for your comment!
Due to health issues, I’ll never be able to travel there, but you made me feel like I was there to experience it. Your work is gorgeous and I am so impressed.
Thanks! I am glad you enjoy the photos. 🙂
Colorful images, great! Except the pink house. Who in the world would paint his/her building PINK? Eeks!
If I remember correctly, it is where the governor lives. If not the governor’s house it is a government building, which is why there is a policeman outside the entrance. 🙂 I don’t know, the pink sort of adds to the uniqueness of the city and it is in the Caribbean. 🙂 thanks again for your visit.
Have greatly been enjoying the portraits of your travels…many thanks for sharing!
Glad you enjoy! Thanks.
Makes me want to go there!
You should! Beautiful place.
Thank you for sharing your travels.
welcome. Glad I can.
Don’t think I could pick a favorite. They’re all great!
Thanks. 🙂 🙂
Thank you! I am glad you enjoy the photos. 🙂
The Tree with the crazy roots is absolutely inspiring. I think it’ll be the visual inspiration for a scene in the short story I’m editing.
Once again, gorgeous pictures. I’ve come to look forward to these picture-blog posts of yours. 🙂
Thanks Greg! Such nice words.
So pretty! I love your pictures, it’s always a little happy to look forward to in my day 🙂
Thanks! I hope you are surviving the storm.
Thanks Rexlin Victor.
This brings me back to my honeymoon. What a lovely island.
Thanks Ben. It is a great place.
Great series of photos!
Thank you Angeline. I am glad you enjoyed them.
