Beachman is at the beach!
Musings: I am on vacation until end-August, but still watching markets
Greetings from Rincon, Puerto Rico!
Yes, I am literally at the beach for my annual, August, seaside vacation. I count the days leading up to my trips to this beautiful island and I am happy as a clam when I land here. Here are some pics of where I lounge…a small, rustic, sandy spot away from the touristy crowds, about 850 feet from my home, keeping company with Pablo and Pedro, two long-time-resident pelicans. Some of you might remember from my early writings that I married a lovely woman from Puerto Rico…best decision of my life in so many ways.

My work on the Comeback Portfolio continues…even while I am beachside. I have two more sectors left to publish - Cloud Infrastructure and Data Management. I have to admit that working while the waves and a cubalibre are beaconing is tough.
