Isobel helps transfer eggs from the cartons that are sold in the DR to our saved boxes that fit under the floor. Amongst other things she is the egg girl. In addition to being able to crack an egg one handed, she is in charge of storing them and retrieving them. They are stored under the floor boards and above the water tank... a perfect height for the egg cartons we have.

This is the Jimenoa Water fall near Jarabacoa, DR. Just below this one of the biggest hydropower plants in the DR. Isobel slept through the entire hike, up and down... to wake up when we returned the car... "where's the water fall?"

The view out the hotel window is pretty great. Although much of the mountains we deforested, much of it has been replanted with Coffee or fruits.

We took a walk to the north shore of Isla Baeta and it was spectacular. With over hanging rock and blow holes. This photo is of the beach in front of the village.

the little fishing village on Isla Baeta is very welcoming. The coast guard captain sells Mangos. No one seems to think much of tourism here, welcoming us with a smile. Very nice spot.
