Title: Rainforest

The centre of Dominica is predominantly rainforest, and a UNESCO world heritage area: There are a lot of trees! We had a great day with our guide "Sea Cat" aka Octavius Lugay; swimming under Trafalgar Falls, not swimming in the Emerald Pool and soaking in the natural hot springs (very hot, though not the boiling ones). Surprisingly while languishing in the hot spring a blue hummingbird was feeding inches from our heads, amazing.
 
On the way back to the boat we were shown some remenants of the damage caused by hurricane David in 1979, see photo. (No one was hurt in this incident).
 
Soaking at the falls.
Hurricane David.
Guess which nut comes from this tree?


She said what? About who? Shameful celebrity quotes on Search Star!
