Dominican Republic Report Continued: Cavegirl & Cavebiker do Punta Rucia
Toward evening, we decided to walk into the fishing village Papayo for our lobster. We noticed a couple restaurants while we rode through the village this morning.
Cavegirl and I love small communities like this, especially when they are on the water. We enjoy stopping and talking with people that we pass by. These guys were arc welding on a motor. No face shield or even sunglasses. I asked about the motor, it was an outboard boat motor and I asked if I could take a photo.
I asked these guys what this stuff was they were sorting. I forget the name of it but it was a sea plant and looked like the stuff I thought was scrambled eggs the other day. After it was all sorted out and cleaned with fresh water, the person wearing the white shirt loads it in a cooler strapped to the back of a motorcycle and rides off. We joke saying that they are probably delivering it to the restaurant we ate at yesterday…
Heidi grabs my arm and started saying those are the biggest dogs she has seen on the island. A closer look revealed they were pigs. The pigs were just hanging around the beach as if they were dogs.
Dinner isn’t usually served until after dark around 7:00 PM at the earliest. The restaurant we picked seemed open but no one was there. We did not want to seem like losers and walk in before sunset.
We walked around the village and found a colmado. There, we purchased a small bottle of aged rum, $3 and a couple cokes with two plastic glasses to go. Next, we found a shaded spot on the beach to chill, talk, enjoy a couple R&Cs and the scene. All Good…
Waiting for sunset
The lower the sun gets the better the light is for photos
The local kids sure know how to have fun here. No game machines needed.
The sun sinks deeper
A lobster dinner at an open-air restaurant across from the beach and a starlight walk back to the hotel, a super way to end a day. We have not seen that many stars in years.
