Our Honeymoon

We went to stay at the Samana Peninsula in the Dominican Republican for our honeymoon, and the one word we came up with to describe our time: UNREAL! We loved every single minute of our honeymoon {so much}! It was so private, so special, so natural, so perfect. We also got to spend the last full day visiting Gary and Ali (missionaries), doing some service for them and talking with them about the process of becoming missionaries.

Here are just a few pictures from our unbelievable time!

My favorite picture of us on the honeymoon. I love him {so much}!

This guy is the angel that saved our honeymoon by giving us a free ride to the bus station (he sat next to me on the plane...such a God thing!)

Our cabana {honeymoon suite}

Stopping for a picture on the beach

We felt like we were on the set of LOST here. :)

We walked to this beach the first full day there. So private & beautiful.

We took a horseback excursion to hike to a waterfall.

Every view was proof of God's beautiful creation!

El Limon Waterfall (we were told it was in the Jurassic Park movie)

We went on a four-wheeler excursion spanning the entire peninsula - stopped here to eat lunch.

We ate dinner at a French restaurant - this is the son of the owner and the hair flower was his gift to me!

The area at our bed & breakfast where the fabulous breakfasts were served by Ester.

We took a boat ride to Playa Ricon for the day.

Playa Ricon - can you see I'm the only one there for miles of sand? Amazing!

My husby in the crystal clear Dominican Republic waters.

We splurged on our last dinner out there: El Cabito...this is the restaurant.

The inside of El Cabito {we were the only ones there!}

The view to our left during dinner.

The view to the right.

And the center view. I will never forget this.

I'm quite confident this will remain the most romantic dinner of our lives.

Two great gifts from God {my husby & the view}!

We went back towards Santo Domingo to visit missionaries Gary and Ali. This is their church.

Eugene and I parted ways to do a little service. My job: hard-core cleaning and setting up their new school.

This was Eugene's service. Yeah. No kidding. He's working hard "coaching." (They have a baseball ministry in the DR because the sport there is more than an obsession; it's a way of making a life.)

Meet Gary & Ali. They took us out to dinner: pizza and ice cream. Delish.

This is their land. Prayers to build a baseball facility and more here.

So you can see, we had such an amazing, blessed time on our honeymoon. We loved every minute, and I still think back to this week often to remember the unreal times we shared.
