Punta Cana – Jan 2009 – 226

Like so many other things at Club Med, this was an unexpected sight. I was walking along the beach, from our room to the fitness center (the vast quantities of delicious food make daily exercise a necessity!) when I saw a large group of colorful kayaks rowing by. I don’t know if it was a contest, a parade, a regatta, or just a bunch of people enjoying themselves — but it was colorful indeed…
There was one aspect of this picture that I was completely unaware of when I snapped the photo … which I’ll let you discover by yourself.
By the way, the shipwreck in the distance was a Russian freighter called the Astron, which ran aground in the early 1980s, while delivering 60 tons of corn to Cuba. For more information see this article on Wikipedia.
