Getting fit for Life

Punta Cana (or Canada as they like to say)

We returned home last week from Punta Cana Blau Natura Eco Park…it was so beautiful there. Perfect for those who love nature, birds and walking.

I got plenty of steps in; after our winter and having an awful sinus cold that made my head spin so bad i got sick a few times…it was great to see the sunshine and get out and walk and feel the warmth…one day I got just under 20,000 steps.  I still had the sinus cold the first few days but nothing like I had the week before.  Just grateful I was still able to make it on vacation 🙂

There are so many birds; the ones I can think of at the moment are

  • Thick Billed Cuckoo
  • Wood Pecker (green back?)
  • Flamingos
  • Snowy Egret
  • Great White Egret
  • Peacocks
  • Common Moorhen
  • American Kestrel
  • White Cheeked Pintail
  • Ducks
  • Snow Geese
  • Night Heron
  • Green Heron
  • Tri Coloured Heron
  • There was a huge mallard duck with an afro type feathers…read that it is probably a cross bread of some sort.
  • Flying we saw lots of Pelicans and Buzzards

At night we saw a huge bat the first few nights we were there but couldn’t get a photo of it…so fast and dark.

Saw a huge frog or toad, and very little ones after a rain storm (lasted maybe an hour).

We didn’t walk the beach this time…just never got to it.  But it was beautiful.
