ON THE BEACH IN PUNTA CANA FOR WATERY WEDNESDAY

LINDA AND I SPENT A LOT OF TIME AT THE BEACH IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC ( PUNTA CANA ) A WATERY WEDNESDAY POST.

Sometimes the beach was quiet and I had the opportunity for those early morning walks.

The sand, sea,and sky in Punta Cana is outstanding. Now maybe do a little sailing in a catamaran

FRAMEDSAILBOATS

I hadn’t sailed a boat in 25 years. These sail boats are very stable and easy to sail. Jibing and Coming About was the question of the moment. I went out first just by myself to see how things went then the next day Linda went with me.

By noon “things” were in full swing.

Then in the evening the mood seemed to be more contemplative. (at least for me). “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.” John F. Kennedy

My brother used to fly there when he was working for a Peruvian airline company. He really loved his over-nighters there! What lovely color and scenes...I wanna go!

This looks like a wonderful place to enjoy the water! Sailing a catamaran yourself must have been so exciting!

There is a lot of fun activities going on, and a lovely beach to sit in the sun or swim.

This looks like the Gold Coast of Australia where I was last summer. Even the parasail is the same colour.

Sailing, playing or just plain lazing, this looks like the perfect beach for it! Beautiful! I'm glad you and your wife had a great time!

What a fabulous place, Joe... I'm glad you both went sailing while there. I like Catamarans --and they do seem quite sturdy... I'm sure it was WONDERFUL.

You had so much fun and that spectacular deep blue and clear water in these shots is just amazing.

That was a great vacation. Linda is a woman after my own heart -- sending you out alone for practice before joining you on that sail boat.

Gorgeous pictures.
