Island Life for a Week

012014-Culebra-JuliaLuckettPhotography-47

In January I escaped from the extreme cold of Boston to go to Culebra, a small island off the coast of Puerto Rico. It was a wonderful getaway to enjoy with my family and boyfriend, Nick. When it comes to vacation, I've never been one to have trouble relaxing and I actually read 3 books - ah joy! I decided to leave my camera behind most days, but I (naturally) did document some of the trip. Most of these are photos of my family and Nick and various beautiful sights. Hope you enjoy!

Normally I try to get as far away from spiders as possible, but the web was so spectacular I had to make an exception.

The variety in the beaches is pretty amazing. Many places to explore.

I woke up early one morning to watch the sunrise, and what a spectacular sight.

One night Nick and I were driving home and we saw a beautiful full moon rising over the hill.

My grandma is a huge reader, and I caught a couple moments of her reading early in the morning.

If you hiked along a certain beach there were some beautiful rock formations, and I decided to take a portrait of my mom out there.
