Default Here, have some pictures

We were mostly staying in Cabrera, where we lived before moving to the US. At the end of the block, there was this. As a kid I was always afraid of getting to close and falling to my death.

My brother, SIL, her mother and Matthew mostly stayed in Samaná and we met up in Cabrera one day. Matthew meets dog.

We were driving around to see how things had changed and I couldn't help taking a pic of this view.

Technically everything is organic at the market, but nobody stops to think about that in DR.

I was really sick the first one and a half days. I took pills for motion sickness, and they served me for the plane ride, but we then drove some three hours or so, which did a number on me. We were supposed to leave for my grandmother's house early next morning, but I just couldn't travel. This worked out well, because I felt better later on and it was my birthday and we went to the beach!

More Playa El Diamante

I adore this beach. Practically no waves, and the water at the deepest point still wouldn't have reached my neck. Seeing as how I can't actually swim, this is a good thing.
Also, it was cool and shady and I didn't even need my hat or sunblock.

Yaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy, DR vacation pictures! They're making me just ache to go there, they're all so gorgeous. Especially that beach. It is A MAGICAL FAIRYLAND. Seriously breathtaking, and you all look like you're having such a good time, too. Oh, and that adorable retro polka dot suit? Still fabulous.

*goes to click through again and try to teleport herself to Playa El Diamante through sheer power of want*

Why would you ever leave such a beautiful place?!?!?

You look fantastic. And your mom obviously gave you her good looks. Love your suit!

Thanks so much. I'm glad you all like the pictures.

We stopped for coconuts afterward at a roadside stand.

Then we went to another beach because we used to go when we lived there, and we were told it was pretty different these days and really beautiful.

The next day it was time to go to my grandmother's house in a very small town called Martín García. My dad knows everyone there, basically.
People, all these years later and still the road from the city to this town is dirt and incredibly long to get through in spite of short distance. You also have to stop occasionally because sometimes cows decide to take a nap right in the middle of it.

I had forgotten about the hammocks in the yard, but we became re-acquainted.

Love the polka dot bathing suit!

Great pictures. I love the waveless beaches there. Next time I go I'm putting my foot down and going to areas we haven't seen. Cabrera looks gorgeous.

Did you go to Samana? Did you get to meet kayb?

We walked over to the river where we used to go swimming whenever we visited my grandparents when we were kids.

My grandmother had two cats and a kitten. The kitten was playing a game with its mother's tail. It was cracking me up watching them.

I did not get to meet Kayb.
I didn't end up going to Samaná, which is where my brother and his wife and family stayed. We only met up twice, once in Cabrera and then in Martín García.
My dad went to Santo Domingo to see some family there, but my mom hates the capital for being unbearably hot and I was in no mood for more traveling.

You should definitely go to Cabrera. So many great beaches there and nearby, and a pretty little town. And awesome fresh cheese. I missed the cheese so much. Here is a picture:
