Punta Cana: Day 6!

Saturday, May 18, 2013

Buenos Dias! Today was my last full day in paradise, but needless to say we enjoyed the day and it was full of ocean adventures! We took today to do all the things that we hadn't done yet during our stay in the Dominican. As per usual, we woke up around 10am, went to breakfast at the buffet and I retreated to the lobby to send a good morning text message to my boyfriend. My family then headed to the beach - my crazy uncle woke up at 6am to snag some chairs in the front row and in the shade (Bonus!) so we had the perfect spot.

For the past 6 days I had been eyeing the kayaks and I desperately wanted to go, but I was scarred of tipping! Also, my cousins and some other people in the wedding party had ventured out into the ocean on kayaks and the waves had tipped them over and two pairs of Oakley sunglasses were swallowed up but the deep blue sea. But I decided to suck it up and I went kayaking with my little brother (without my sunglasses!). The waves were huge, so we didn't go out far, because I was super scared that we would flip and then I would panic... After 45 minutes my arms were tired from paddling, so we headed back to shore.. Mission Accomplished! We didn't tip!

After that, we headed to lunch at the buffet and I decided that I would temporarily get over my fear of the ocean and go boogie boarding with my family! I had been sitting on the sidelines all morning and taking pictures, and I felt like I was missing out. I'm glad I decided to do it because it was soo much fun, but I have to admit that I am not a fan of sea weed.. If a piece of sea weed touched my legs (I'm hoping it was seaweed...), I would flick my leg high in the air and jump... it's probably safe to say that I looked like a crazy lady flinging my legs out of the water and leaping, but hey! Going in the ocean up to my waist is a HUGE accomplishment for me! 

Later on in the afternoon my family took catamarans out on the ocean and we went sailing! Both of my parents know how to sail so my dad and my sister went out on one, and my brother, mom and I went out on the other. The rollers were massive, and we would get sprayed from them, but I was not complaining!

After that I decided that I wanted to stay on land for the remainder of the day, so my cousin Steph, my sister and I had a little photo shoot. After that we spent the rest of the day by the pool!

The pool closed at 6pm, so we got ready for dinner, and headed to the at the buffet. After dinner we did the usual, and we all hung out in the lobby. I got a brutal sun burn from being on the beach all day today, so my arms and back feel like they are on fire! (ALOE ALOE ALOE!) Sleeping should be fun..

Buenos Dias! Good Night!

P.S – I vlogged the whole time I was away, so check out my YouTube Channel Murdock Talks, HERE, if you are interested in watching my vlogs!
