Views From My Balcony!

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
March 8, 2016 9:09am CST
I am truly am a artist in my mind, I enjoy views that helpo relax me and I tend to grab my sketch pad and start drawing away. Everywhere I go I have my camera phone if not my digital camera and I love taking pictures of scenic images to look at them after and relax or draw them. This picture was taken sunday night after a good pool and beach day, I was on my balcony mentally preparing myself for monday and I snapped this last photo before leaving lol

Wow, how wonderful to have that view from your home. Most of us only get that sort of view when we are on holiday.

@BACONSTRIPSXXX $200 a night is very expensive. Are you there permanently? Are all the homes down there that expensive?

That is a beautiful picture and I can see how it relaxes you. I does me and that is just by looking at your picture on here. I bet the air smells great there too. I am shutting my eyes to pretend I am there. I love it.

@BACONSTRIPSXXX ..I get regular nightmares of sharks..may be that is why I am scared of sea and sharks. :) In all my nightmares they attack midsection of my body on one side leaving my vertebrae exposed and I get up as if it is something I lived in last life.

@vandana7 Yeah that sounds like a bit much, sounds more like shark phobia! I never heard of repeatedly dreaming about shark attacks

@BACONSTRIPSXXX That's good to hear. People who're content with their lives are good to be with. Unfortunately, there are complainers who always find something to whinge about.

@MALUSE Yeah tell me about it, thats probably why my wife and I are always on the same page, my mother in law is a difficult woman to please so my father in law is always grumpy

Wow, this sure is a very nice view. I think if you can put in a fishing boat heading out to the sea to catch fishes, that will complete the romantic picture.
