Here’s a little clip about who we are and what we are doing. Bella has been wanting to volunteer at a dog shelter forever. While we were in the Turks and Caicos she found a site online for Dogs and Cats of the Dominican Republic. It turns out that a couple of people that work for the very same organization live right here in Luperón. Well, the first Tuesday of every month they have a clinic where they take care of local dogs. We as a family volunteered to help out today and this video is a small glimpse into the beautiful work that they do.

In this episode, we are wrapping up our delivery back to Baltimore, MD. We encounter equipment failure, bad weather, good weather, good wind and no wind. We make the long open ocean passage from the Bahamas to Charleston, SC. then enter the ICW in Buford, NC. Our hired Captains jump ship for a more important delivery and leave Paul with two new Captains for the 24 hr. run up the Chesapeake Bay. With the new crew comes a whole new dynamic. Finally Paul & SV BellaLuna (formerly “Catchin’ Rays”) pull into Baltimore after 19 days at sea and a long over due reunion with the family is in order.
