Stopping in the Dominican Republic on our way home

March 3, 2014

On the way home we stopped in the Dominican Republic to visit Phil and Liz.  Phil is the MTC President for the Dominican Republic MTC.  They had been there for just over a year.  We knew some of the same people because we worked with the Perpetual Education Fund people from the D.R.  We had to fly to Miami and then back to the D.R. for the visit. We had a great four days resting up after racing around trying to finish up and get things in order before we left Guyana.

We went whale watching and then stopped on an island for lunch.

Here we are enjoying lunch.

Bob made some friends.

We went to Juan Dolio Beach and stayed in a nice condo.  It was just like in the movies - Beautiful.

We loved the beach.


Looking for shells.

Fish Dinner

We ate at a little restaurant on the beach.
What a fun time.  We were so glad we got to visit Phil and Liz before we came home.

It was a challenge to get a good picture.

We went to a wharf to catch a boat.

Phil and Liz took us down to the Old Town Square for dinner.
There were lots of tourists.

Phil, Liz, Katie. The buildings were from the 1500's.

Too bad I don't have a picture of our family there to welcome us at the Salt Lake airport when we arrived home.  It was so amazing to see how much the kids had grown and to get hugs and kisses.  Wow!  It's great to be home.
