We sailed out into the ocean, and it was a blast when the captain sailed directly into the swells, soaking us (not so much fun for the people who got seasick). We sailed to a village located on a sandy white beach, close to where Christopher Columbus first landed when he "discovered" the island.
At the village, children playing naked in the ocean welcomed us, while the adults waited to barter with us for jewelry, carvings, sea shells, fresh coconuts, and other wares. A group of men were relaxing in the shade of a palm tree, roasting a pig on a spit. Unfortunately, this typical Dominican meal wasn''t for us. Our dinner, on the beach, was still great with chicken, rice, and fresh pineapple slices. I tried a coco loco--using a machete, a local cut the top off a fresh coconut and dumped rum into it. It was very strong--so strong I couldn''t drink it.
When we landed on the beach, a young boy and girl picked me and my boyfriend as their "tourists for the day." They grabbed our hands and toured us around, giving us sea shells and limes. We gave them some fruit bars in exchange--we didn''t want to give them anything unhealthy. At the village, we walked back into a bay for some mediocre snorkeling, then headed back to the catamaran for the ride back to Luperon Bay. All in all, it was a great day.
