We went on a wonderful journey with a guy we met "Chocolate",
to his home Sanchez "fishing village",
then on to Los Haiteses National Park - what a fantastic day!

Everyone in the village is involved in the Fishing - the children help take the fish out of the nets - others repair nets etc etc

The Mangroves are Huge!
On the way back, there were we were getting a little low on "liquid refreshments"
We were also getting very low on fuel - so Chocolate got on the Phone and rang his friend Angie, who came to the rescue with more...

A lot of the local villagers came to say Hi and as always, they were playing their favourite game - Dominoes. Brett joined in for the challenge also...
The day was not yet over - we were back in Tonys Car and headed off
with Brett & Toronto in the boot...
They took us to one of their favourite local bars and tried to give Teresa and I Merengue lessons...
|Angie - Chocolates friend who came to the rescue came to the bar with us|
These guys were sitting across the road watching the goings on (also being a bit quieter from the music) Richard took them over a beer...
A the end of the day/evening, Chocolate, Toronto, Angie & Tony
all came back to Our Rose and Seismic Wave for a couple more drinks.
We are very grateful to them all for a wonderful day!
