18 Marzo 2015 Vamos a la playa!

Vamos a la playa!

8:45- Our day begins with our ritual trip to the bakery. What a way to start the day! The sights and smells prepare us for our day — particularly this day at the beach!

We love going to the bakery every morning to begin our day!

9:30- We board the “Magic School Bus” with Hector (abuelo) as our driver and begin our journey to Juan Dolio. Oh the sights we saw! Green trees, bright flowers, and a turquoise ocean that only excited us more for our time at the beach.

11:15- We arrived at the beach resort in awe. We were excited about being able to swim in the ocean, jump in the pool, and relax on the beach 🙂

1:00- Lunch time. We headed to the buffet curious as to what food we would find.

We are ready to delight in what our lunch buffet has to offer.

After everyone filled their bellies with delicious food, we spilt up. Some to the pool, some to tan, and others to play various games.

5:00- Our journey back to the hotel begins, with all of us tanned, a little burnt and, ready for showers.

7:30- None of us were prepared for the traffic of Santo Domingo.. What was a one hour trip to the beach became a 2 and a half hour trip back. During the long ride back we had all decided we wanted to order pizza and stay in because we were exhausted.

9:00- Pizza! We all sat in one room, ate pizza and regaled the others with our adventures of the day. From playing volleyball with other beach goers to fish encounters of the human kind… Hector decided to scare some of us by being a “fish” 🙂

10:00- Everyone decided quickly that it was time for bed so we could prepare for our early morning at Santa Rosa tomorrow. Teeth brushed and faces washed we all tucked ourselves into bed pleased with our day at the beach.
