Much as Prachi and I had heard of Puerto Rico, not much was known about the island of Culebra, just East of the mainland. The only thing we knew was that, till the recent past, it was used as a target by the U.S. Navy. For years, we have driven by the U.S Naval Academy in Annapolis and the Destroyers and Submarines in Baltimore Harbor. I could imagine the big guns booming and the projectiles flying towards that tiny landmass in the Caribbean. How would it be to stand on the very same beach that had endured the mighty firepower of the Naval fleet for years, we asked ourselves !

The answer was three hours away. It was an early morning flight to Puerto Rico, landing at San Juan International Airport. A short drive to Fajardo and a plane ride later, we were in Culebra.
