In this next set of videos…..
In video 5 of our 6 part series we venture further up into the river region, just under the mountains that feed the rivers. Along the way we had to strap up some large boulders and drag them off the road to be able to pass through. I think you will agree that the boulder fields of several of these rivers are quite impressive and having driven out there three times to get all the footage, I can tell you that they are constantly shifting with the heavy rains they catch up in this area.
In video 6 we finally make it as far as we can go on this little quest for the source of the water. Oooops, there is about a one minute gap in the audio near the first of this video… don’t worry the audio starts again in just a minute. The roads end and we reach the final water collection facility. We will also summarize our little venture and remind you why we are so confident that water will never be a problem for us living on this portion of the north coast of the Dominican Republic, no matter what happens to the power grid.
If you have any suggestions of things you would like to see or learn about the north coast of the Dominican Republic, or for that matter anywhere on this large island, then leave us a comment and let us know. If you would like to see more of these “explorer” types of videos let us know that too.
For now, it’s Barry in the DR heading out to take some families out on their own discovery tour of the north coast.
