“Curlew” arrived in Luperon, Dominican Republic, after sailing all night. We could smell green grass and cattle 30 miles out to sea. Tried to sleep in the forward cabin while Gina kept watch, but it was like being inside a washing machine on slow tumble.
Next day, up at 8 and off to slide down 3 miles of waterfalls. After months of white sands and arid, turquoise seas it was wonderful to immerse ourselves in a fresh-water river draining the beautiful mountains. This is heaven.
