Just catching up...

Sorry, I've missed a couple of days. We've been a bit busy as the weather has finally gotten better, in fact, its almost back to normal as we are waking up to clear blue skies and the wind is coming up in the afternoons.

Yesterday was quite a busy day. We went in the morning with friends to snorkel in Sosua and we actually remembered to take the little waterproof camera that we bought along with a banana to feed the fish. It worked pretty good as you can see from the photo below.

After we got home, we went down to the beach and I flew the 9 meter inflatable kite for a bit. It was really tough as the winds were very gusty. One minute the kite would be stalling and falling out of the sky and the next a gust of wind would come through and yank me around. Matt took me on a long drag again and the waves were huge. We did really well getting out through the surf, however when we were coming out we got attacked by a huge wave. It managed to crash right on top of us as we were coming up to the shore, thank goodness Matt had control of the kite and I only had to come out of the water.

Cabarete is having a Dominican Jazz festival so we went down for a couple of hours last night to listen to jazz bands under the stars on the beach.

Today, we spent the morning working and then headed to the beach. The air was light but consistent so Matt went out a couple times on his 14 meter kite. I watched from the beach and tried not to get taken out by the people flying kites on the beach that had no clue what they were doing.

Here is a picture of Matt and I snorkeling yesterday.
