Rainy days are here again...

Well actually, they never left!! We keep hoping that the weather will clear and we can get some beach time again. We're getting a bit stir crazy. This is just like Tropical Storm Noel in October that decided to stick around forever!!

We've watched as wave after wave of dark storm clouds have rolled onshore and the pouring rain quickly follows. To quote Matt, it has been raining "Cats & Buckets". When I asked him if he meant "Cats & Dogs" he quickly replied "No, I mean Cats & BUCKETS!". Should give a visual, huh?

On the plus side, we've had lots of computer time so Matt has been working on the photography website and I've been working on my next digital scrap-booking kit. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with all the kits other than give them away for now, especially as we return to Denver and to work.

As we get closer to the end of our trip, we've decided to explore Dominican a bit. We are planning a trip next week with friends to the Samana peninsula so we'll be a bit out of touch. The peninsula is on the eastern most tip of the island. We are planning on visiting the beautiful beaches of Las Terrenas to do some kite-boarding and then to watch the whales from Samana City. We had no idea that just a few miles from where we are living is one of the most fantastic breeding grounds of the humpback whale. We are so excited to be able to see this wonderful creature up close, however, I'll be on lots of dramamine!!

Nothing too much exciting here, just wanted to give you a quick update!
