We sailed from Turks and Caicos direct to Samana, DR (240nm) and docked at the Puerto Behia Marina. Then we rented a car and drove to Santo Dominigo. We are really impressed with the DR people and how hard they all seem to be working, selling and making a living. Here are some photos we blogged at www.IslandSpirit.us. I am also testing photo uploading from a very remote, very low bandwidth location. YUP, it simply works just fine!
