Las Caletas - Site Review March 2008

Recommended Posts

I know that several others have already posted site reviews so I don't want to repeat what has already been writen -- if you have any new questions please feel free to ask and I will be more than happy to answer them if I can...

 

March 26, 2008

 

We took the early boat to LC on March 26th and met Kelley on the dock at the marina pier. They say the boat ride takes b/w 45 minutes and 1 hour but honestly, it felt like no more than 25 minutes because we were having such a great time chatting with Kelley and drinking our coffee and eating our muffins. The water was like glass so I didn’t even remember that I had been concerned about people getting sea sick until much later in the day.

 

There were guys providing entertainment on the way over, dancing on the bow of the ship, but I honestly didn’t pay much attention so I don’t know what they were saying. I was having too much fun chatting with Kelley and watching the pelicans dive bomb the water going after fish.

 

As soon as it was even remotely possibly to spot Las Caletas in the distance I was up at the front of the boat snapping pictures and staring through the mist. I felt like I was an 8 year old….but it was fun!

 

When I could finally (finally!!!!) see the beach clearly, all I can say is…. Well, I can say nothing to really describe it visually because there are no words to do it justice. Well, maybe there are, but I’m not a poet so I leave it to the poets and artists to try and describe or photographically capture it.

 

The best I can do is to tell you that it’s not just a visual experience – it is an entire physical transformation. I saw the beach and instantly my lungs expanded more when I breathed, and my shoulders lowered and relaxed, and my mouth began forming this partial smile that stayed for the rest of the day….It was WOW like that WOW….

 

We laid on the beach for a while, and then we both had massages at the spa (as if we needed to relax a little more!). Kelley talked us through what the wedding day would be like but all I needed to know was that she knows her job and what’s she doing but that she’s chilled and relaxed and has excellent opinions– I now know I will be relaxed because if she’s in charge of my wedding day I trust her to “Get it done!” or to improvise. She’s got my faith! She’s also got my sense of humor so between those two things I think we’re going to have a great time planning this wedding!

 

Ok, so the pictures are a lot of duplicates from others site visits but here you go anyway….

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
