Pam and I really love the DR! We bought a motorcycle and have been traveling all over the island. We have a million Dominican friends and are getting really good at speaking Spanish. We've been thinking that we'd like to have a house here, so we've been looking at home prices and land prices.

We actually made it to Luperon in the Dominican Republic! I was only giving us a 50-50 chance of making it this far this season... but we did it! We were serious sailors this year, really covered a lot of distance. We really like the DR a lot! A beautiful place with really friendly people. We're going to enjoy travelling all over the island and checking it out.

I pulled and pulled and it wouldn't budge. I was completely exhausted by the time I finally pulled i...
We're in Mayaguana. Its a really beautiful little island with really wonderful people! We left George Town for Conception Island. Then we sailed to Rum Cay and then we had a 140 mile overnight trip to Mayaguana. All of the trips went really well. We're planning on leaving here for the Turks and Caicos on Saturday. Hopefully we can get good internet there. I'll post pictures then too. Hope everyone is well! Steve & Pam
