This morning after I checked in, we went to the market and bought some nice fruits and a big tuna steak to put on the barbeque tonight. After that we sailed to Rupert's bay where we were welcomed by Spaghetti and the fruit man that also did ice and bread since we got the fruit on the market. The plan is to stay her for at least one other day to explore the Island a bit. There's a nice tour up the Indian river and Sunday there's a big beach barbeque we might wanna go to. Both we can do with Spaghetti :-)
The day after we came into Ruperts Bay, we did the Indian River tour with Spaghetti as our guide.
The Indian River is one of the places where they shot the Pirates of the Caribbean. The tour was magnificent and at the end there's a bush bar where you can have a drink. There's one guy actually living there and he showed us his place. The place is amazing and we stayed there way longer than just for a drink.
That night we went to the Sunday nights barbeque which this PAYS club organizes specially for the yachts that are in the bay. The food was indeed very good, so was the music and the rum punch.
He took us to the Chaudiere Pool, a place we would never found ourselves. The road was actually off road and the path down to the pool was very steep and slippery. The pool was amazing. You could jump in from the rocks or slide in by the waterfall. Unfortunately my waterproof camera turned out to be not waterproof and it died.
This Cobra guy was a great guide who enjoyed showing us around. Every now and then he stopped to get us all kinds of fresh fruit, or a bush rum or a pastry. After the pool he drove us through Carib Country. Dominica is the only Island where the original Caribs still live. They have their own land and community and no Dominicans are allowed to live there.
After that he drove us to the Emerald pool, the place we wanted to go to by ourselves. He told us not to because all the people of the cruise ship would go there and it would be packed. He drove us there as a bonus on the tour and by the time we got there, they were all gone.
He picked Heidi and me up next morning and drove us to customs and immigration to settle the paperwork
Dominica was by far the most beautiful island we visited!
