We found another place courtesy of the GPS and some
coast hugging. Only because we were not intending to visit Dominica at all
and have no chart for the whole island. GPS took a long while to get a fix
this morning too so we were on hand held for a while with Roseau and a wobbly
arrow on the screen.
'Boat Boy' Pancho was quick to meet us as we neared
the anchorage and talked us into a tour tomorrow, plonked us on a mooring
off the beach (135ft deep!) , and said he would be back with an itinerary
Dominica so far has been one day sun next day rain
but they have huge rain forest and 365 rivers to keep going so I guess
its necessary. Along the coast there are wrecks from various hurricanes
waiting to rot or be cut up for salvage. On a few in Prince Rupert Bay
there are still life rafts, had we known maybe we could have acquired one of
those rather than pay huge dollars to get ours up to date!!
No.1 currently in the cockpit relaying the
scenario to me regarding a fisherman who was knocked clear out of his boat a
while ago by another boat speeding along and not watching where he was
going. Alot of shouting and waving went on before the collision but
obviously not enough, now the bedraggled and dazed fisherman has been taken
ashore and help arrived to get his boat towed ashore, & we were thinking it
was so quiet.
So more pics hopefully tomorrow of waterfalls and
perhaps the Boiling Lake - if we can find a means of charging the
