Puerto Rico

Dave is glad to see cows here as he misses ours back home. Had to take a picture of this one with such long horns.
This picture is of one of my favorite spots near Lares in the mountains.

The island has many beautiful purple trees, but this picture doesn't show the real color.

These are some pictures of the southern part of the island with more rocks and not quite as much rain, but it is still very green.

Here we are with President and Sister Martineau and the Puerto Rican flag.

These are very tall trees (30 to 50 feet)and some of my favorite ones. They are so colorful. Some of the trees like this have yellow blossoms but they are not so vibrant.

We are all at transfer meeting. All the missionaries gather at a stake center every 6 weeks and then the President announces the changes and they all leave and go to their new areas. This is Elder Sellers with us. We first met him in Aruba when he was a zone leader on Curacao. Here he is an Assistant to the President. We saw him every day at the office. Now he is finishing his mission in Curacao and will be part of a different mission--Dominican Republic.
