Partly cloudy and HOT today. It rained like a son of a
bitch last night (what else is new)
The road leading to my hotel is flooded from the rain, sewer
systems are rare to nonexistent so the water just goes where
it wants. The whole field to the right is under about 10 feet
No idea what kind of plant this is but it sure is beautiful.
It's on a vine creeping across the beach
That's me taking the picture of the above flower
Said beach where the vine was. At the waters edge is very
jagged lava rocks that would slice you into shreds, but sure
My new friends Trond and Rosangni - He spent 2 days of travel
to come from Norway to meet her after seeing pictures on my
friend Dieter's Latin Affairs Introductions website at www.latinaffairs.com.
They just got engaged yesterday!
The water from the flooded field ends up running into the
ocean from this little cove
Barefoot and loving it!
Exploring the cove
The waves have washed away about 16 inches of sand
Trees like this are everywhere, sometimes the roots look like
little walls as they reach out.
I went for a walk in the afternoon and ended up on the main
beach in Sosua.
Looking back at my footprints in the sand.
These are from the far end of Sosua beach
The whole way along the beach, just inside the tree line are
bars, restaurants, and tons of little shops.
At one of the little restaurants was this lobster tank. This
beauty has a tail that is about 4 inches wide!!!
The other end of the tank had another huge lobster and a small
2 hours of walking makes one quite sweaty, so it was back
to the hotel for more suntan lotion. Soon as i got there it
started to rain, so i decided it's time for some beers!
These are the girls that work at the pool bar at my hotel.
(yes I know the picture is blurry, after 4 beers my hands were
not that steady)
This is the view behind the bar stool where I took the above
photo. Rain, rain and more rain.
