|These are huge generators that are sitting in a yard. Everyone needs a generator if they want electricity for sure, and these are big enough for a business or apartment building. Ours is tiny next to these.|

Another view showing more of the ocean
This shows the view in another direction, towards trees on the horizon.
This is what it looks like back towards the city. Many of the homes you can see are not completed and not lived in yet.
This is during the delicious meal, by which time it was getting pretty dark. We had fish and vegetable shish cabobs, manyoke, rice, beans, barbecued chicken and some bread. There was cold bottled water and soda to drink - a feast! President Caillet is in the background.
Here is our lovely hostess, Soeur Caillet, and her two precocious daughters, Erika and Chloe, and a friend. It takes all day for her to cook a dinner like this. I made a pasta salad....and left it at home in the fridge by accident!

This is the car they arrived in - it has ribbons and flowers on it, but they are not showing well in this photo.
This beautiful little girl appeared to be one of the relatives.
There were 6 young women friends who walked slowly in front of the bride and groom and had a special dance they did to music while they waved these cloths. I had been to one of their homes the day before, and the young woman was having her nails done by one of the men who walk around the cartiers clicking noise-makers together to advertise that they are in the neighborhood looking for customers. These dresses were so pretty and modest and we have seen the young women wearing them to church since then. Many times the dresses worn are more like prom dresses - very fancy (like at home!).
