WPC ‘Opposites’ in Punta Cana

This Week’s Photo Challenge is ‘Opposites’.

Just offshore in Punta Cana, lie the remains of a shipwreck which has been there since 1978. During a storm, the Astron,  a Russian-owned  cargo ship of about 120 metres, was torn apart into two pieces, with the bow standing vertically above water and the stern on its side under water. This was opposite to where we were sunbathing on the beach. Also opposite to the wreck,  was a rescue mission going on for a stranded windsurfer.


These two vessels were opposites, both in size and also in condition. The one was long past redemption, whilst the windsurfer just needed a bit of help before it was on its merry  way through the blue, blue waters of the Caribbean.

Looking at this photo, I’ve got itchy feet again. It’s ‘ot-as-‘ell here in Palm Beach. The Iguana extended family and Sammy squirrel are all laying low. Not a critter to be seen. Have a great Wednesday.

I won’t be around much today as we have to go all the way back to the USCIS in Fort Myers again to get my fingerprints redone. 😦 I really thought that as they did both the scan and the ink prints last time, that was the end of the story, but a couple of days ago, we got a letter to say that the FBI weren’t satisfied. I hope they get it right this time, as we don’t want to be driving almost 3 hours to get there along Alligator Alley, every two weeks. Please keep your fingers crossed for me.
