Sunday afternoon they Piggies traveled with two kids from the hostel to the port and took a ferry to the island of Vieques.
It was their favorite part of the trip.
On the first night after arrival they went to the biobay. A body of water with a high concentration of dinoflagellate Pyrodinium bahamense, which glows whenever the water is disturbed, leaving a trail of neon blue.
They kayaked to the middle. Technically you aren't allowed to get in but you know the piggies....always up to trouble.
No camera was taken but if someone wants an idea of what swimming in this water might look like, here is what a quick google search brings up....
On the first full day they went with the girl from DC to playa negra, the black sand beach...

That night they went out and met some Puerto Ricans living on the island
Kevin and Bombi
The second full day they rented scooters with the Australian and a girl from Ohio
They explored these old US Army bunkers, totally abandoned now
