back from Punta Cana and Mixer 21!

We're back!!!!! spent a week in Punta Cana, how relaxing!  

first off here is Mixer #21, this was a great color combo challenge!  i've been wanting to do  a red/aqua/teal mix for quite some time now and this gave me the good excuse to get it done. 

ok so like i said we're back from Punta Cana, some of you probable didn't even know i was gone, well i don't like to publicize it before leaving just for security purposes...sounds a little paranoid, doesn't it?
well you can never be too careful on the web.  
So my hubby and I spent a wonderful week at the Gran Bahia Principe Ambar resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. 
 It was our first time in the DR and i must say it's a pretty nice place.  We tend not to go to the same place twice.  Ours was an adult only section of the big resort so it was more quiet than the Principe or Punta Cana part of the resort.  the beach had nice white sand and lots of palm trees. 

 we were lucky and were able to get a little hut everyday, Dave burns very easily so we didn't want to be out in the direct sun even tho it was mostly cloudy on many days.  

the top balcony was our room and we were in the building closest to the pool and the beach.

Here's Dave sipping a Mojito, i had a few myself...yummm!!!!

we also went out on an excursion called "the reef explorer" were we got to snorkel with some sting rays and nurse sharks.  the pictures were taken with Dave's camera but i'm having some troubles downloading them so as soon as i figure it out i'll post a few pics.
