Portsmouth, Dominica

Here are a few pictures from our first days on Dominica.  The island is rugged and lush, covered with rain forest, small farms, and flowers and fruit trees.  The people are poor but thoroughly warm and welcoming.  They go to church and treat each other as neighbors and family.  This is the old Caribbean, where the entire island feels like a small town.

  1. Great to see the smiles on yours and the islanders faces. Looks like so much fun!
    I have visited all of these islands back in my traveling days in the 70s and 80s. They were always my favorite vacations. Hope you are using lots of sunscreen!
    Life is good up North. Not much snow so far.
    Thanks for keeping us posted!
    Cheers, Lee
