After at least one deferred trip thanks to COVID, we finally made it out to Vieques! Similar to Culebra, Vieques is an island on the southeast coast of Puerto Rico. It is larger and more populous than Culebra, and a surprisingly popular American mainland tourist destination. It does not presently have a hospital, though, so please stand 6 feet apart.
Our primary goal on this particular excursion was to cash in on my birthday present: horseback riding! With real live horses and everything! + Cute dog!
Vieques also boasts any number of wild horses, after the fashion of Assateague Island. Unlike Assateague Island, however, there are no park rangers or posted signs admonishing you to stay away from them. You can catch one if you want. (Pat wouldn’t let me.)
(Yes, we rented a golf cart. Yes, you should be jealous.)
Aside from riding, we spent our 3-day weekend in traditional island style: with fun drinks…
Breakfast sandwiches (of champions!) from a really awesome place called Rising Roost…
The world’s most free-range chickens, which local chefs’ actions suggest probably-to-definitely end up in your dinner…
And of course, making sweater-thief kitty friends. Always!

Horses and chickens, and kittens, oh my!!! ❤❤❤❤❤❤
This looks like an awesome spot! The horseback riding seems like a lot of fun, and I gotta say that breakfast sandwich looks better than any of the ones we had at Disney 😉
