Here it is folks, we scraped by, only by an extra 10 or 20 miles offshore, that`s what separated us from for sure devastation, and just some damage. A lot of our Dominican friends lost their homes, including our gardener who lives with his mother, who is living with us now till we can re-build his home.
A 60` tall palm tree in the back yard came down and missed the house by a few feet!
Our boat “Vamos” is ok, thanks to the valiant efforts of my friend and deckhand, “Lindo”.
Many have suffered damage, but we will re-coup, re-build, and push forward, it`s the Caribbean spirit.
Our hearts go out to the people who have suffered in the islands, and those who have suffered terrible losses. Those who are still in the path of the storm must take care and prepare.
Thanks for all the support, it means a lot to us!
All our love, Randy, Dawn, and Nikki the dog
