The more we travel, the more we understand, appreciate and love.
A recent Caribbean cruise opened my eyes to the love, struggles, and proud people of the Dominican Republic. I was happy to be a part of an excursion the Norwegian, Encore offered. We docked, and then boarded a large tour bus. Rolling through town, we visited a church, a rum distillery, and an amber stone museum. My sister bought a necklace at a gift shop with the blue fossil, Larimar, only found in the Dominican. It was a pleasure to talk to the people and purchase some souvenirs.
Reflecting back on that day, I should have taken more photos. Maybe next time, if we are so blessed to do so. Until then, I’ll think about the colors, images, and the textures of the community that inspire me to create new artwork.
We thank Dad and Mom for a fabulous vacation together. Until next time!
