Punta Cana Trip: Day Three

If you missed my first recap, you can see it here.

Saturday started with another yummy buffet breakfast.  I believe I had an unpictured bowl of oatmeal with honey, nuts, and raisins, and some fresh fruit that day.  Yum! 

After breakfast, we decided to head down the beach.  Punta Cana Resort has a sister resort called Tortuga Bay, which is located right next to our resort and is walkable by path or by beach.  You're allowed to use some of their amenities, like their restaurants and pool.  There are also three golf courses between the resorts and we passed a couple holes on our left.

Soon we reached the beach and walked the rest of the way there with our toes in the sand.

Probably my favorite thing about our resort is that it has so much beach and lot of it is empty.  Paradise.

Ridiculously beautiful...

Eventually we got to the Tortuga Bay clubhouse and pool.  Our plan was to hang out at the pool and have lunch at the clubhouse grill.

Our plan was derailed when we realized the pool was closed as the staff set up for what looked like the wedding of the century...

They were setting up several stages, tables, and a slew of wedding reception decor.

Oh well, obviously it was still worth the gorgeous beach walk over. 
We still looked around the clubhouse for a little while before heading back.

Next stop was one of the beach restaurants, called La Choza.

We split a burger, greek salad, and some fried plantains (which I'm addicted to).

The rest of our afternoon was pretty lazy.  We went to the beach and laid there for a while. 
I made a lot of progress on my book- The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest.

Then we went to the pool and laid there for a while...

I might have gotten a little bit sunburned...

We had a low-key dinner back at the non-fancy pool restaurant and split veggie pizza, a salad, and some ravioli, before calling it a night.  Just another day in paradise...
