I haven’t written too much about fitness lately as Rebecca has taken to carrying that torch with her blog, but seeing how she dragged me (kicking and screaming?) into this new video, I thought that I should post it here too. Be sure to watch the video all the way through to the end to see the outtakes. 🙂
Yes, that is ZTC anchored just off the beach in the background.
Today we’re planning on taking the bus to Bense to hike to Chaudiere Pool, another of the Dominican spots detailed in our hiking guide Ready To Get Wet?. It has been raining a lot here on the island, more than is seasonably expected, so I’m not entirely sure what condition the river will be in. When it rains on islands like this the rivers can swell substantially, sometimes to dangerous levels in just a matter of minutes. Less than a week ago there was a tragic accident on the island where two locals perished when their car ran into a 40′ deep ditch carved right across the middle of a road by rainfall. That damage took place in a very short period of time too! We heard about this story as we were visiting our friend Roy who owns a rum shop here. Quite sad.
