The day of departure from the Dominican Republic arrived too soon. Before we knew it, my husband and I sat in the lobby of the hotel waiting for the bus to take us to the airport.
It was midday and the hot sun was causing a sheen of sweat to cover our bodies. Drinking an ice-cold glass of water, I savoured the heat with the knowledge that by the end of the day I would be experiencing the cool temperatures of a Canadian Fall.
A few hours later, we were airborne and bade our farewells to a country that had welcomed us with open arms. We had enjoyed our stay and looked forward to returning to the island with our children sometime in the future.
