A PICTURE SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS
The red “*“ marks the spot where our favorite spot on the world is located.
~RINCON BEACH RESORT~
Whenever we travel to Puerto Rico to visit family and friends and to get away from the daily hustle and bustle, we land in Aguadilla. We drive to Rincón and check in.
The resort is our base. We drive from the base to surrounding towns to see friends and family.
As a matter of fact, we were due for our next trip before Hurricane María nearly flattened Puerto Rico 118 days ago.
Prior to that, Hurricane Irma also grazed the island.
BEST INLET EVER
AERIAL VIEWS OF THE RESORT
BEAUTIFUL SHORELINE AND SANDY BEACH
AWESOME, PERFECT RELAXING ATMOSPHERE
*(just what the doctor ordered)*
HURRICANE MARIA PATH OVER PUERTO RICO
*(the red “*“ marks the spot where the resort is located)*
NOTICE HOW BIG MARIA WAS
It engulfed and swallowed Puerto Rico.
According to the National Hurricane Center, hurricane-force winds extended up to 30 miles from Hurricane María’s center, while tropical storm-force winds extend outward for up to 125 miles.
Keep in mind that Puerto Rico is 100 miles long X 35 miles wide.
There was no place to hide!
NOTICE THE STEP DOWN WHERE THE BEACH USED TO BE
*(compare to the ‘before’ pictures)*
It’s all gone. My heart is hurting.
The friend who sent me the pictures told me that the beach lost its shore, the trees and the palm trees are gone as you can see.
The beach itself is deeper and not safe for swimming.
THE SOFT SAND IS GONE, REPLACED BY ROCKS AND DEBRIS
THE SOFT BEACH IS GONE
CANNOT WALK TO THE POINT ANYMORE
INCREDIBLE BEACH EROSION
THANKFULLY THE INNER COURTYARD SEEMS ABOUT THE SAME
Thank you to my friend Héctor
SOMEWHERE IN BEAUTIFUL PUERTO RICO
it was so beautiful. I have wanted to go to Puerto Rico for years, but never had the funds to do so. Now, I look at pictures of that glorious paradise that I dreamed of and simply tear up from the loss. I can only imagine how horrible it must be for the ones who have been there to walk upon those beautiful beaches. Why aren’t we, as a nation, doing something? I don’t understand how the government can be so bigoted as to ignore the island.
