A Winner, Puerto Rico and Pink Jewelry Holder

It's Saturday, another one of my favorite days of the week. Why? You guessed it right! It's Sightseeing Saturday time, which I am hosting, so we get to go on a tour. Today, Chandy of http://whatnowtablescapes.blogspot.com/ is again taking us on a tour also. And what's more, it's also Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly of http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/. Please be sure to visit Chandy and Beverly to see what cool stuff they are sharing with us today.
Today, I am especially excited cause we have a winner of my 100th post giveaway.
What I did was print all my comments from last Saturday's post.
Then, I cut them up. And then, I cut up more papers and wrote down the names, 5 x for each Sightseeing Saturday participants last week.
I rolled them all up and mixed them very well and had John pick one for me.
And the winner is........."Drum Roll Please!!!!!"

Congratulations, Picket! I am so happy for you and I can't wait for you to get these goodies. Please email me your home address and I will package them up and send them to you.
Now, let's proceed on our tour. Let's go to San Juan, Puerto Rico, which is a US territory so currency is in the US dollar and passports are not required. Of course traveling with us today is none other than my sweet granddaughter AJ and my darling hubby, John.
There's AJ in our hotel balcony. Isn't that a beautiful view?
The beach is simply gorgeous! We really enjoyed it especially because the weather was perfect.
and there's AJ ready to go snorkeling.
Aj had fun swimming and ordering drinks from the wet pool bar.The food in Puerto Rico is delicious. We did not have to go far. Every night, there was a buffet in the hotel restaurant and it was so good. We always looked forward to it. They had a different variety of food every night. Do you see the roasted suckling pig? I was the only one asking for the crunchy skin, which is my favorite part, LOL!
We took the bus to Old Town, which is one of our favorite places to go there. Shown in the background is Fort San Felipe del Morro, which was used to guard the entrance to San Juan bay and defend the city from seaborne enemies. This is the entrance view.
We explored the fort. I don't know about you but I am always fascinated by something really old. Construction of El Morro begun in 1539 so that's really old.


"The hills are alive!"
This building is right across the fort. I am not sure what it is.
We always walked the streets of Old Town San Juan. And of course, we always had to buy bird feed for AJ. She enjoyed feeding the doves.
Streets of Old Town. No! They are not peddling again! LOL! It's John just carrying stuff that we buy from shopping around there. I like the colorful houses.
and the cobblestone streets



Great view for this cemetery.
We walked and walked to search for a store that sold a kite and John and AJ flew it.
We also visited the El Yunque rainforest. Isn't that a pretty waterfall?
I hope you enjoyed seeing San Juan.
Just as I said, it is also Pink Saturday today and I would like to show you my pink jewelry holder. I bought it from TJ Maxx and it was discounted, just loose from the stand. I glued it and it's perfect now.


Thanks Beverly, for making it possible for us to flaunt our pink items.
And thank you all for the visit. I hope you enjoyed my post today. Congrats again to Picket!
Now, let's go visit Beverly and Chandy!
