Los Tres Ojos

This past weekend we visited the "Los Tres Ojos" (The Three Eyes) with the Darnells and their grandson, Noah. JT and I have both been here while on our mission trips, so I was glad to finally take the girls to see the caves.

Los Tres Ojos is complex of caves, lakes with a mini-lagoon. It is a steep walk down to the caves, but once you get there it is beautiful site of natural landscape and tropical vegetation. It is also said to be a Taino holy site.

Only one person is allowed to swim in the lakes. They call him "Spiderman" because he climbs up the side of the caves and dives down into the lake. We saw him as we were headed down, but did not get to see him dive.

Thought my girls needed to sandwich themselves between a few nuns. It's been a long 59 days here in the DR. I'm just saying....

The view looking down into the lagoon.

It was a fun day and I am so glad the girls and I got to spend some time together. You may be asking yourself, " Where is that little cutie pie Alex?" Well... he was happily napping at home while a sweet Dominican lady named Biemba watched over him. Best 500 pesos I ever spent. :-)

On another note- Thank you to all who have left comments on my blog. I can not tell you how much it encourages me to read them. You bless me.

Please pray our 30 day appeal process will begin Monday. I am ready for my family to be together again in our home. I operate better that way.

Love to all-

  1. Oh my goodness, you are being stretched like I have never seen. I am praying for the appeal process to start so you and your family can all be together, home, safe and sound.
    It looks beautiful there and I am glad you are still getting out and enjoying the DR. I can't wait to hear your stories of your time spent there.
    Love you!
