From the Bilge is where we post picture(s) that we have not used, that don’t fit into any specific blog post or that highlight some of our favorite places. The pictures might not be stunning, but they will recall something we think is worth sharing. We hope you enjoy these non-chronological items as they pop up From the Bilge.
Perhaps my favorite excursion during our travels has been our trip to 27 Charcos de Damajagua in the Dominican Republic.
First we followed a trail beautifully shaded by an arching canopy of trees, then the real adventure began…
We swam through streams…
climbed over rocks….
slid down water smoothed rocks….
and jumped from cliffs to return to our starting point.
The whole return trip was made through fresh water that was just chilly enough to be invigorating. And the jumps, slides and swims were just daring enough to make one stop occasionally to take a deep breath….. and go for it.
I highly recommend this trip if you stop in the Dominican Republic!
As always, thanks for stopping by to read our blog. What do you think of our new section, From the Bilge?
