Ferretworld in the Isla de Encanto

I just returned from a trip to Puerto Rico, I stayed at the Westin Rio Mar Resort and it was just lovely. Here is the view from my hotel window.


I particularly enjoyed the beach and spent many hours floating in the bath-water-warm sea. One day I took a snorkeling trip on a big Catamaran. We went to this place - no idea where it was, but it was certainly pretty. I didnt really see much of Puerto Rico apart from the beach and boat trip, but I was only there for 2 full days. It seemed rather built-up and I would probably choose to return to a different island.

Funnily enough I did get some knitting done, largely on the 9-hour flight each way. I also finished off the silk scarf I had been knitting. This is the striped scarf from Victorian Lace today, knitted in Seasilk. I blocked it on the hotel floor...


...and then dried it on the balcony....
Then wore it to our final gala dinner!

Oooo it all looks just lovely...
How fantastic to finish the scarf (which I didn't know you were making by the way! you need an 'on the needles' or how else can I keep up?!) ... and then have such a great opportunity to wear it.

Oh my god, how beautiful. The trip was totally worth it, just to shoot that photo of the lace scarf draped over the balcony. You are tempting me to look for some sea silk!
