Conde de Mirasol Fort, Vieques

There is something mystical about this fort. However small, it's design, thick walls and cannons facing towards the ocean, all together transport you into the past. BTW, "Fortin" as it appears in the sign above, means small Fort.

Vieques is such a pretty place. It has beautiful beaches. The town square was being remodeled. New benches were being added along with nicely sized grayish rectangular stone pavers.

I also learned that the local hospital is named after my uncle's sister-in-law, who was a well regarded midwife on the island. We drove by the hospital on the way to the beach, the name seemed familiar. That's when I learned who she was...who knew?

Well those are a few pic of my trip to el Fortin Conde De Mirasol in Vieques.
