Our Trip

We had a great time in the Dominican. Beautiful weather, good food and good company. We basically floated in the ocean and relaxed near or in the pool. There was a bar in the middle of the pool that you could swim up to and sit on stools (in the pool) and order drinks. Pretty neat!

On Tuesday, Eric and I woke up to a mouse in our room. I swear he started out in our bed because I felt some weird movement in one of the pillows. However, I saw him under the bed and that's when the hunt began. I was freaked out! We tried to chase him out but he was too quick and he ran under the couch never to be seen again. Eric called him Shifty. I'm not sure why but it was a funny name so whenever we heard something strange we would say "Shifty's back." Not exactly the best part of our trip.

We had a little bit of rain from the storm Olga but nothing serious. We were still able to enjoy the day.

On Wednesday, we all went into La Romona and shopped at a few markets and had lunch. It was definitely interesting to see how people lived and it was a little scary driving around town. There were motor scooters all over and people going where they wanted. The horn was used quite a bit by our driver. That's how you get people out of your way or you just go when you want. Honk! Honk! I sat in the front seat and I kept trying to use the break that I kept looking for. No luck of course. After driving around, we were taken to another part of the town that was more secluded. It was really pretty. We walked around there, took some pictures and then headed back to the resort.

The rest of the trip was pretty much more floating and relaxing. The guys played soccer a few times and also played water polo. Sue and I did water aerobics one morning but that was the end of our activity.

Over all, it was an awesome time especially doing nothing. We would definitely do it again. Here are some pics from the trip.
