I’m Back From the Dominican—Day 2

Photo Blog

While the girls are out doing their thing today, I’m left to eat leftover Oklahoma Joes and work on photos all day. Shucks. I’m loving this spring weather that’s starting to roll in. Yard work is just around the corner, which means spending unnecessary amounts of money is just around the corner! Love that! Here’s a continuation of yesterday’s post with more shots from the our trip to the Dominican Republic.

Our first big adventure—taking a cable car to the top of this mountain.

A view of the city from the "rich" neighborhood. Lots of poverty.
