Puerto Rico

Nuclear Power Plant in Rincon, PR

A unique landmark on this island is a defunct nuclear power plant in Rincon.  It was built as a prototype (experiment) in the sixties  but never really functioned right.  At some point they wanted to turn this into a museum, but after a debate it never happened. (Was radiation an issue?)   My cell phone never seems to work in this area.  

 This area is home to a great surf spot called Domes.  I have seen 20 ft waves here.  I was once out in a kayak,  before the break, where waves lifted me up as high as the palm trees, and after they'd pass, I was dropped in a hole surrounded by water.
