Danielle booked us on an excursion today it was a difficult decision since we were torn between snorkling or this particular one.

We got up at 7:00AM headed out to a transit station to board another bus which then carted a group of us an hour and a half up the road to a beach waypoint where we boarded a series of boats to get to a catamaran that then carted us an hour and a half up the coast to the island of Saona.

The beach was pretty impressive, not a great deal of seaweed that the resort beach had but other than that, there was nothing too special about it.  After spending a couple of hours on the beach we headed via speedboat to the "Natural Swimming Pool" where the area in the ocean was shallow enough to wade and swim in.  Danielle found a starfish and that's what this little area is known for.

The trip was an all day event and we were pretty worn out at the end of it.
