Seen on a t-shirt in San Juan:
No. Such. Luck.
and on down Highway #1 towards Santa Isabel,
and Seafood Restaurants in Santa Isabel,
We went up and down the "beach" area of town
(after dark so we couldn't actually see the beach if there was one)
and only saw 1 business that was open . . . a bar.
We finally turned back to the #52 freeway,
headed North across the island to San Juan.
We got off the freeway one more time,
in the town of Caguas.
I searched for restaurants on Google,
but there were no addresses listed.
I called the listed phone numbers,
but not a one answered.
I believe Puerto Rico is only "Open" in the Summer time.
By the time we arrived back in San Juan for dinner,
it was after 9:00 pm.
We had eaten a small breakfast at Quiznos at 11:00.
We had searched all day for Gift Shops and/or Restaurants,
but found not. a. one.
As we headed North towards the city,
we could have stopped for dinner at Wendy's or Burger King,
but by then we were in need of much more than a fast food burger and fries.
Oh. So. Good. was the food we finally found at Chili's in San Juan.
While it was a long day . . .
and disappointing not to find all of the things listed in the Tour Books . . .
we still thoroughly enjoyed our time together . . .
we laughed a lot . . .
and talked a lot . . .
we walked along the boardwalk . . .
and we tried to read the Spanish Road Signs.
(After nearly bottoming out our little rental car
in a drainage ditch that ran across the road . . .
by the 5th or 6th ditch, Jim noticed a sign before the ditch.
It probably said "Drainage Ditch" or "Bump"
or some. such. thing. We got a good laugh out of that one.)
I was so very glad that it was Day #4 of our 7 days in Puerto Rico.
It would have been much more disappointing if it had been
the first or last day of our trip.
As it was, we just looked forward even more to the next 3 days.
