Altos de Chavón, Dominican Republic

While browsing through this year's images, I came across these photographs from our trip to Dominican Republic. I thought I would share a few of them I took while visiting Altos de Chavón in La Romana.

Altos de Chavón  is a beautiful shopping/art/culture area which was built on a cliff overlooking the Río Chavón and designed looking like a 16th century Mediterranean village. This area includes a museum, a 5,000-seat amphitheatre, artists' studios, galleries, as well as many shops and restaurants.
All that surrounded by breathtaking views...

Beautiful Sunday Afternoon

Happy Father's Day!

My hubby and I took a relaxing afternoon ride to the next door town of Chester.
As we strolled down Main Street we stopped at Fresco Mexican for a quick bite to eat and a couple of refreshing drinks.
Finished off with ice cream and a shake =) from a local shop. 
It was a beautiful day!

New Stripes

My new creation is here!
Very light and "flowy"fabric was a perfect choice for this fun summer maxi dress. Even though it wasn't the easiest to cut and sew ;-) I managed to align the stripes and finish the dress in just a couple of days.
