Debt free empty nesters...ready to stretch our wings. Life is good and we plan on making it even better. This blog is mostly about our trips to Vieques Puerto Rico, with a few odds and ends thrown in about our life after the mortgage.

Return to sender.....

Only 28 days left until our next trip. It's going fast now. We still have a few odds and ends to take care of before leaving. One very important part is getting the rest of the rental monies to the owner of Casa La Vista. Last night  when Lorrie and I  arrived home we found the letter we mailed last week with the final payment....returned. Oops! We put 1200 instead of 12000 on the address. I called the owner and left a message. I also sent an email. The monies were supposed to have been received by Jan 5th. We'll see how that goes.

We've not had any luck hooking up with the owner of the Hobie cat we saw on Orchid this past November. Brandie, from Trip Advisor, was kind enough to give me the web site for the owner. I sent one email last Tuesday asking for further information regarding his service, there's not much info on the web site. It's called Little Boat Sailing.  Yesterday I sent another email. I'll give it a week and then I might call, not sure yet.



  1. We are planning our trip! We purchased the airfare Sunday. Finally have enough miles to fly for free...so we are adding some more stops! Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, and then on to Vieques! I am soo ready!

  2. Jennifer...when are you going? How long are you staying on Vieques and where are you staying? We'll be back in less than 3 weeks. Can't wait either!

  3. We are going in June. In the past, we have been going the first week of June, but this year we are going to go for the week of 4th of July. We will be on Vieques for 7 days. We have always stayed at Ababor and can't give it up! We love it and Wanda (the owner) is wonderful! What can I say...we are just addicted to Vieques and cannot give it up!!

  4. Hi Curt and Lorrie - I'm pretty sure that LIttle Boat Sailing is the same company as the Vieques Paddleboarding - maybe try this email as well - info@viequespaddleboarding.com

  5. http://viequespaddleboarding.com has Little Boat Sailing on it. We're going to Vieques on the 28th for a week. Cannot wait! My husband was really disappointed when he realized that he thought we were leaving in a week instead of 2 weeks. Praying for good weather when we leave and return - no ice, no snow! Hope your next trip is wonderful.

    Finally got a response from little boat. We've set up a trip with them. We have a temp of 12 degrees outside this morning. I'm with your husband....I wish we were leaving in 1 week instead of 3.
