Southern Caribbean cruise 2009, part 3

Day 3
Dominica
September 8, 2009

This is a rather poor island where the average income is $75 per week! We took a tour with Reyno Tours. We visited Trafalgar Falls and the Emerald Pool, along with several other sites.

Here is the view from the ship as we were docked:





Our guide, Crisca, and our gang:



(L-R) Diane, Tom, Connie, me, Vicki, Mark


Trafalgar Fals


Elephant ear plant


Not sure if this is a natural formation but I thought it was pretty cool!
See the face????


More falls


Emerald Pool





On the walk back we took the long way. Way off in the distance is the Atlantic Ocean. Look at the lowest point on the horizon.



We stopped off at Mr. Nice fruit stand where we sampled his items:



After a long day of treking through the jungle we settled down on deck for a cigar:


The big screen tv on deck is HUGE. For scale I decided to stand next to it. That's me in the yellow bathing suit next to it!
