We're back form the Dominican

A week has past already and we are safely back from Peurto Plata in the Dominican Republic. We played lots of great volleyball and found time as well to just relax in the sun and do nothing.



Here's a quick re-cap of our week...

1 - Friday - Arrived in the Dominican around noon and went directly to the pool. Opening night dinner for HOPE Winter Fiesta.
2 - Saturday - Looked into tours and then spent the whole day at the beach and pool.
3 - Sunday - Day 1 of the volleyball tournament. We won one of our four games. Whole day at the beach. Hot and sunny!
4 - Monday - Day 2 of the volleyball tournament. We won another game! More time spent at the beach. Great party at the resort pool before dinner with Neil Emberg and his guitar and iPod.
5 - Tuesday - Lazy day at the beach with some shopping time too.
6 - Wednesday - Anthony goes SCUBA diving. Fun! Girls are meant to go on the catermeran but it is overbooked so have to go back to the resort.
7 - Thursday - HOPE WinterFiesta Volleyball finals. We came in 7th place (out of 10)! The rain started late in the day but that didn't stop us from having a great closing night banquet. Lots of great food, music and dancing.
8 - Friday - Afte checking out we still have all day at the resort but since it is still raining we have to pretty much spend the whole time under cover playing cards or reading.
9 - Saturday - Arrive back in Ottawa at 3:00 am.
