|Then Entrance to Los Tres Ojos|
But the next day we took to the roads again... we visited Los Tres Ojos - If you're a long-time reader of my blog, you'll know that I LOVE caves and there are TWO on our agenda!
|A long, steep, and winding stair leads to the bottom from the entrance|
|Stalactites and holes in the ceiling|
|That light beneath the stalactite is a mineral deposit|
|Us and Robert and Kathy - dear friends from "home"|
|Lago de Azufre from the right|
|Lago Azufre - the water was still and clear|
|Nice facility with stairs built amongst the rubble|
|Heading down to Lago Nevera|
|There's a ferry to take us across La Nevera|
|Low stress job handing the ferry across with ropes|
|People were feeding the Tilapia that live in the lakes|
|Los Zaramagullones an open top|
|It caved in during an earthquake|
|Tilapia being fed by the tourists|
|Lago de las Damas|
|Having a nice beverage after a thirsty subterranean hike|
|I'm not sure this marketing strategy is working...|
Of course it's the weekend... a fact that became apparent to us as we walked toward the shore. There were hundreds of people enjoying the sunshine and crystal waters even if the waves were huge!
|No way I would consider flinging myself into that crazy water!|
|See the kid in flight!?|
Yaniqueques The word is derived from Johnny Cakes. They are flat fried nothings that are served with a squirt of ketchup... We've seen sellers with baskets full of them carried on their heads... The ones we got were much smaller than those but that's OK.
|Ketchup? Yes please... lay it on me!|
|How can it be bad...? It's like a fried tortilla only more fluffy...|
Cuevas de las Maravillas. Unfortunately they have a "no photos' policy so you'll have to Google it to see images inside the caves. They were very nicely done with strategically placed lighting.
|The Bayahibe Rose - National Flower of the Dominican Republic|
|A REALLY nice dinner...|
|We had to work hard to find a beach for a post-dinner stroll|
|What do they DO with all of this dried stinky fish???|
|Dinner at the Boat House|
The next morning our friends left and we prepared to leave the marina and continue on our way... weather dependent of course.
