Posts Tagged ‘holidays in salobrena’

Well there you have it folks, another year has come and gone on the San Juan front.  The beach was packed out with  happy revelers and despite the fact that it was held on a Tuesday night, we did get many out of town folk here for the evening.

The beach was closed off to vehicular traffic on the beach after a certain hour, and so it was a strollers paradise.

This year I managed to get there a bit late, so I managed to  miss the initial lighting of the fire, which I could actually see from my apt in the old town so no loss.   Anyway, I got there soon enough, the streets were heaving, the fireworks were fantastic, what a display!  this year saw something different again.. this year there was a fire truck standing by on the ready, plus they had barricades around the actual fire.. Good Lord.. they aren’t going to make it SAFE for everyone are they.  Another interesting thing that was done, was the launching of small hot air balloons, made up of paper shades and candles..It was very pretty to see them flying and hanging about in the sky.
