Just Beachy...

Tropical Storm Noel is still affecting our weather. Last night, the winds and rain picked up and the rain continues today. We did have a break in the rain for about 2 hours this afternoon and even saw about 5 minutes of weak sunshine. We took advantage of the break and walked into Cabarete for lunch and a quick look around the shops. As we started our walk home, we noticed the dark clouds closing back in around us. We came to the gates of our complex and it started raining so we barely made it back in.

So far, we have been really lucky and not too affected other than rain, rain, & more rain. We've lost power some (but thats not unusual) but the generators are working. Our water from the tap is brown and yucky - good thing we don't use it for drinking or cooking. We're being careful and using bleach when washing dishes.

Here is the latest image from the National Hurricane Center:

Here is a picture that I took off our balcony late this afternoon as the storm clouds rolled back in...

Well, I can guarantee that the following pictures are not from today!!! These are actually some pictures we took of each other about 3 weeks after we got here. I actually did this as part of a template challenge. It was really tough for me because I've never done a layout with stars before. Its tough to make photos fit into them. After a lot of resizing and rotating, here is the result:
