For some reason, my last journal position did not show on
Google Earth. This one should and when I get to a good wifi hot spot I
will correct it. I used a comma instead of a dot to
separate the minutes from seconds in the Lat/Long position and maybe that had
something to do with it.
This is a most pleasant anchorage, much better than our
last one in the Iles Des Saintes ( The Saints). The spot was pretty but
very rolly. Before that we were on the island of Dominica (pronounced
Dominikay). Here we took a river boat tour in what I called their idea of a
Jungle Larry's Cruise.
We were anchored just outside the mouth of this little
river which we toured. Our tour was as much to keep these people employed
and making some money, as it was for our enjoyment.
The anchorage was beautiful, as most are. The hills
are as green as green can be and usually very quiet.
We are stern to with a line to shore to keep from moving around too
much and keep our bow into the swells. This area had fantastic
Coral gardens filled with brightly colored fish from about one to eighteen
inches. We try to snorkel every day as the water is quite clear, warm and
filled with things to see.
We were told we would see neat birds and fish. We
saw one morning dove and some carp. Plus it rained buckets the whole
trip and we got soaked to the skin. Martin, our guide was very friendly
and tried his best to make nothing into something.
Life is very slow on this island and people live long
lives. The oldest person on the planet, a life time resident,
just died at age 128.
