What a whirlwind two weeks it has been dear imaginary reader! What began as a couple of calm fun filled days with Bass and Bling at their lovely cottage in The District with idyllic views like this...
In the flash of an eye became a loud fun filled crazy week in the Dominican Republic (yes in August.....) to celebrate the wedding of our nephew and his new bride. We stayed at the Colonial Majestic in Punta Cana, the check in for 33 people was more than a bit of an nightmare and loosing Teach’s bag within the resort for 5 hours didnt help the first impression any - things did get better.
Our party stayed in the Colinial Club area which is adult only, each room was assigned a “butler” ours was Georgi, my vote would be if you go to this resort and get him as your butler request a new one. He was more than a little bit invisible. Request, Felix, Freddy, Jacob - all butlers for other people who were very helpful to us. The food was very good, though we did get a little tired of buffet. Japanese was the best and the only I would recommend for the a la carte restaurants.
We had a great time, experienced our first foam party don’t need to do that again..maybe I am old ahah!). Spent most of our time on the beach. I think TLOMIL summed it up best, “we don’t like big cruise ships anymore and this stay is like a big ship at a resort”. Very good, but too many people and quiet space not available, ya know what I mean dear invisible reader?
The wedding was held at the Jellyfish Restaurant in Higuey, what a treat that was! The location is lovely, the venue amazing and the staff were outstanding. Our nephew and his new bride looked amazing and had a great time. Very well done guys! Congratulations again.
It was wonderful to get to spend time with most of our family but fun in the sun had to come to an end. We got one sleep in our own bed then off to The Station to spend time with other friends and this guy
How lovely it was to finish off the two weeks with good friends, good food and wine, boat rides, a kinder sun and falling to sleep with a breeze across my face while hearing the calling loons. Ahhhhhh. We are now home, thanks to the team that kept everything running while we were away, we missed you LLB.
While we loved seeing this -
It doesn’t beat this
Home.....ahhhh. Must get busy here in the middle of nowhere - talk real soon, take care dear imaginary reader.
