On our (slow) way North
23 January 2011 | Puerto Plata
We arrived at Puerto Plata on the North Coast of the Dominican Repblic after a 40 hour passage from Guanica on the South Coast of Puerto Rico. There were some huge elephant sized waves in the Mona Passage and Angel handled all well.
Ah...the land of excellent coffee, great cigars and vintage rum....
It is not cold here. There is no snow. Sorry it is just beautiful. We are entering the area where just a sheet will do to sleep under and the days are warm and sunny. Not so bloddy hot as 500 miles to the south where we were a month ago.
The people of the Dominican Republic are perhaps the most happy, friendly and welcoming in the Caribbean.
