A Jolly Roving Tar en El Viejo San Juan

So I’m vacationing on Puerto Rico with my family and some friends. I once was stationed here for three years (1997-2000) at the now closed Naval Station Roosevelt Roads. My wife’s family is from the northwest, in the town of Arecibo. Since we’re here with friends, we’re doing the TURISTA thing and hitting all the hot spots. Old San Juan is one of those spots aka El Viejo San Juan. One of the key landmarks is El Castillo San Felipe Del Morro more familiarly known as ‘El Morro’

Some neat viewpoints can be gained from inside the Fort as well – to include this, the oldest cemetery on the island

And the odd interloper

When WHAT to my wandering eye did appear? An inbound tug and barge

And her date was standing by

The former exYTB805 OCALA now known as Mcallister Towing’s BETH M McALLISTER

Inbounder has shortened up at this point

She’s Crowley’s Tug SEA HORSE with MEMPHIS BRIDGE astern

In the channel now she’ll require some assistance to make her berth

Just off her berth they’d be met by Puerto Rico Towing & Barge’s Tug HANDY THREE

But those pix will have to wait
