What's Sheryll up to now?

Caribbean (June 9-21, 2006)

Dominica

one of Barbados' many beautiful beaches

The next day we visited Dominica, which is known not for its beaches but for its mountains and its rainforests. It is one of the poorer countries in the Caribbean, with less modern facilities. The roads were such that it was inadvisable to rent a car. Here's a pic of the port at the capital of Roseau on the western side of the island.

Clear weather at the end of a rainy day.

It rained on and off through the day, but that didn't interrupt our island tour. Here is a pic of the Emerald Pool. We also visited a plantation to sample tropical fruit, including freshly squeezed sugar cane juice!

Trafalgar Falls is the other well-known waterfall on Dominica.

That night was our first formal night on the ship. Here's a pic of us in the dining room.

Nearly everyone dresses up to the nines on formal nights, and there are lots of photo opportunities to commemorate the event.
