Postcards from Punta Cana

Comments 4 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The sea was turbulent and cranky as though it was annoyed at the sunrise for waking it too early on a weekend morning. Enjoying the start of our third full day in Punta Cana, I did a photowalk while John went for a run on the beach.

Punta Cana

The beachfront is bustling in the morning with workers grooming the sand and removing washed-up seaweed, along with joggers, photowalkers like myself, and sunrise strollers just enjoying the early hours near the water.

During the steamy afternoon hours the beach is alive with characters such as: Dad who is more excited about creating the ultimate sandcastle than his child, woman standing up and rocking out to music only she can hear through her over-sized headphones, and the little Russian child playing in the sand singing a tune similar to Mary Had a Little Lamb.

The resort itself is as lovely as before and was decked out in red, white, and blue banners last Thursday in honor of all the American visitors. The lobbies have Christmas trees decadently decorated in bows, sparkling garlands, pearls and flowers.

Aside from our time spent at the beach, my husband and I have been having amazing meals together, evening strolls, cool swims, and insightful conversations that do not include the words “work”, “social media”, or “code”. Unfortunately John goes back to work tomorrow with the TEAM 1040 broadcast so I’ll have 4 hours on my own each morning for the rest of our trip.

I’ll be spending my “alone time” catching up on work and launching a few more contests on the site this week. I have some great things in the works for the coming month including a partnership with one of the largest holiday events in town and a few charity fundraisers.

Once John is off the clock each day, I’ll be disconnecting as well so we can head down to where the azure waves meet the white sand and enjoy the rest of our vacation.

    @John we’d love to go to Hawaii like you guys did on your last vacation. Hopefully John won’t have to work that trip 😉

    @Henry I’d love to visit the place you are someday, it’s pretty much a lifetime goal for each of us 🙂
