Sometimes, life's a beach!

We have arrived safely in Punta Cana!
It seemed like a long travel day, perhaps aided by the fact that I didn't sleep much last night.
But we arrived after an uneventful flight (the best kind) and a 30 minute van ride to the resort.

We are at the Riu Palace Punta Cana and it is a pretty huge complex. I think there are five different Riu resorts that are all adjacent to one another. There won't be any short walks to town from this place!
I have to say that I like being able to walk off the resort and be right in the shops of the local community. That isn't going to happen on this trip. We may go off property for an excursion -- the one we took last time was very enjoyable. The beach here is wonderful and I'm not sure I want to pay for an excursion that will take us to another wonderful beach, but we will see.

I don't have any pictures to share just yet. So far, all we've done is grab a light lunch, nap by the pool, and walk along the beach. (Actually, I spent a few moments in the ocean!) Now we are getting ready to go to dinner.

It was 35f (1.6c) and overcast when we left Missouri this morning and 82f (29.4c) and sunny when we arrived in the Dominican Republic this afternoon. I think I'm going to enjoy this week.

Yeah, but you gotta come back. I'll see if I can whip up a snow storm to greet you!
