Skywatch Friday – Dominican Republic Sunset

After spending a week cruising the Eastern Caribbean I couldn’t wait to start sharing some of the amazing sky photos I got.  It’s hard to know where to start.  So I just picked one.  You can be sure though that every one of my Skywatch Friday pictures from now till the end of time will probably be pics from our cruise.  GLORIOUS!!  I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Daddy, Mama, Michael & Lauren Having Fun In The Caribbean

Here are a few pictures with each of us actually during the week.  We were having fun as you will see.  I have an amazing family!!!

Sorry there are so many.  I promised I wouldn’t share all 1000 pictures.  But these were so good – showing all of us having fun without a care in the world. I LOVE THAT!!!

Even though it was cloudy and dreary it was still so gorgeous. We rented a Jeep Wrangler. Ron & the kids insisted we have the top off. I thought they were a bit “loco” and I still think they are. However, it truly is the most beautiful way to see the island. We rode up into the mountains till we were actually in the fog/clouds. Those are some crazy curvey steep roads. But we all agree it was the best day by far. Lauren got a zillion pics. If you are her friend on FB be sure to check them out.

Thesew people kept goats chained next to the road. We assumed it was in place of mowing. And Lauren was especially excited to actually see “a chicken cross the road”. And contrary to the great mystery he actually DID do it merely to get to the other side. What a letdown.

Ok, gonna see what Tortola pics I have on my phone to share with you.  Oh and you will want to grab a jacket. It was a bit chilly.

Enjoy!

Welcome To Our Closet

As you read this it is our final day of our cruise.  I can guarantee you that we are sad wherever we are and wherever you are.  We are sad for a number of reasons  one of which is because our glorious vacation is almost over and two, because we are somehow having to figure out how to repack all the junk that has gotten scattered around our dinky little room over the last week.
