We took so many pictures in Punta Cana that I have to separate these into different posts! This post is dedicated simply to the views!
HANDS DOWN Punta Cana was the single most beautiful location I have ever personally experienced (I haven’t been everywhere yet but even my imagination can’t come up with a more gorgeous scene) the water is a turquoise teal with rich shades of sea weed green scattered in spots, the sand is as fine as powder or flour and then closer to the shore turns to the feel of memory foam.
The temperature was like clock work heating up and maintaining the heat with soft breezes from 8 am through 5 pm then as the sun goes down it was important to have pants and even some nights a sweater!
A little side story- I was recently reading in a book about how in every situation you should rise above and see the BIGGER picture (in turn it makes problems and obstacles seem so small) and the example given in the book is how when you rise above in an airplane and see the big picture suddenly there is beautiful pattern and consistency with the world vs. some of the chaos you might see when you are down there in it……it really is true isn’t it?? Can’t think of a better example than flying above and looking out of the tiny window!
That is my husband swimming to the drinks! It took us a few days to find that perfect frozen cocktail but once we did we caught up on the missed days! I know this had rum in it, and I know each one had one full banana but not sure one the rest. It tasted like a strawberry starburst in frozen drink form!
I loved the shadows in the sand both natural (above) and (wo)man made (below)
I thought our views were great but this man may have the best views there are. It was amazing to see him climb this palm tree, inch by inch with a rope and some serious body strength.
I hope you enjoyed these pics! I’m going to write a few more posts about Punta Cana and our trip including an awesome excursion that taught me quite a bit!
