Good Morning All...*passes coffees out :) I think I was hit by a truck again last night, so going back to bed for a bit. One of the pros of working for myself...hehehe. Hope you all have a TERRIFIC THURSDAY :) NEW ART 4 my store coming up all day since tomorrow is going to be so busy (yayyyy... I am actually going to be a model for a spa specialties collage practical exams) I hope I look 10 years younger at the end of the day! Even 5 years would be a total bonus ;)))
Wow... what a final night here in the DR! Beautiful restaurant right on the ocean & we got to see whales breaching & tons of big white cap waves crashing onto the rocks the restaurant was built on! The art show display was really neat & a ton of friends ended up meeting up with us, so it was sooo fun :)) We didn't figure out that the reason the restaurant was not nearly as full as usual until we were leaving: apparently there were 2 murders there yesterday, so people were not in the mood to head back there too quickly :( I don't know any other details other than the police where combing the area all day for clues, but were finished and gone before we got there, so we had no idea. Glad we found out after our fun evening rather than before...whoa huh?!!! The poor people :(
Of all the places I've traveled to & explored, this was by far the WILDEST, MOST RIDICULOUSLY CRAZY 2 day road trip EVER!!!!!!!!!!! From getting lost in inner-city Santa Domingo to creeping along goat trails on the top ridges of mountains...all in 2 days!!! From the Atlantic Ocean, to the Caribbean Ocean and back again. From tremendously over-populated cities to 6x6 metal shacks hidden along on the tops of mountain trails, where the people look in astonishment at the crazy gringos trying to drive along the goat trails :)
Good Morning All...today started off really crumby... I BROKE MY COMPUTER...WAAAAAAA :( Right now I've managed to sneak onto a certain other person's so I could at least post a good morning update. Totally sucks to start a day like this!!! Going on a road trip 4 two days, so will try and access a computer somewhere along the way to post some NEW ART designs for my store. So, if you don't here from me much the next little while, its not that I'm slacking off.... just trying to figure out how to make this last month in the Dominican Republic work without having my own computer to work from ;) Hope you all have a TERRIFIC THURSDAY!!!
#SURF WAS UP! WIPED OUT BIG TIME! Had to drop everything here & head to the local beach... the waves were AWESOME... big swells which rolled way on the shoreline. Had a few good laughs at some people trying to enter the water and getting caught by the waves, resulting in total humiliation of them tumbling along the sand trying to make sure their bathing suits stayed on :)) Of course, I misjudged the last wave before I headed in and BOOM... half the wave went up my nose and the other half ripped me along the ocean floor up onto the beach my arms and legs flailing every which direction ...hahahahaha... serves me right for laughing at others :)) My skin is so soft and smooth now... like having a spa treatment with out the class and relaxation :)
Now I'm back home for the night, showered away a cup of sand and into clean clothes, ready to relax & work on some NEW ART for my store tonight. I'm seriously thinking of buying one of those GO PRO Cameras cause it absolutely BEAUTIFUL being out in the ocean here!!! The kids out surfing on the far corner caught some great waves... I think some of them came up from Kite Beach in Cabarete since they looked familiar. There was actually a pretty strong riptide for the first time ever and I think that contributed to the extra wild waves...ahhhhh... I LOVE LIVING HERE... *wondering how hard it would be to immigrate here :))
The money changers downtown Sosua recognize us now and always shoutout hellos and the guards with shotguns posted sporadically are used to seeing us too, which is nice. Less chance of a problem when the guys with guns like you :)) And the 'perros' dogs across the way got out, so I was totally happy and got to scratch/pet them...I totally miss my old Rotti dog *been almost 2 yrs she's been gone now :( So I'm extra happy to get to spend time with the beach dogs & the ones across the way!
Okay, guess I've rambled on enough for now... hope you all have a GREAT NIGHT & will be back online in a couple hours with NEW ART...
