La Isla Saona

Taken with the panoramic setting on my iPhone
On Sunday while my parents were visiting, we took an excursion to La Isla Saona.  This is a 42 square mile [110 km] island off the southeast coast of the Dominican Republic.  We spent the entire day on the beach or in the warm, salty water. 

We took a speedboat to a natural pool and snapped pictures holding large starfish - unfortunately I don't have any of them on my camera!

We drank fresh coconut water upon settling in to our beach chairs. 

We swam and took tacky beach pictures. 

And we returned to the mainland by napping on a catamaran. 

It was just the way I like to spend my Sundays.

We have no plans yet for this weekend, but I doubt it will compare to last's!
Happy weekending.
