We arrived at Roseau, Dominica, to bright sunshine and another band to welcome us.
To get ashore at Dominica we had to use a tender (small boat), for which the ship used four of the lifeboats, ferrying people backwards and forwards all day long - a brilliant service, very quick, very well organised, no hanging around. Not having a trip booked for Dominca we set off exploring on foot.
Roseau, the capital of Dominica, is packed with an interesting mix of old Georgian buildings and colourful wooden houses.
We even saw a restaurant named after me!
Eventually we came to the Botanical Gardens and decided to explore them too. They were beautiful and we got some really good photographs from which I've made a little slide show for you.
We walked up the
We left the Gardens and made our way back through the streets, we were quite thirsty so we stopped at 'The Old Ruins Bar' (which was literally a bar in a ruined buildings), for a soft drink and a rest before completing our walk back to the boat.
By the time we got back to the boat it was gone lunchtime so we had some food. We then retired to our balcony to do some sunbathing, as it was in full sun we thought we may as well take advantage of it. Of course we had a little nap - after all we had walked a long way! We did rouse ourselves to go to Connexions for the quiz at 5 p.m., where we scored a commendable 160/200, bearing in mind there was only two of us and the other teams consisted of four upwards!
The show in the Marquee that evening was a jam packed variety show featuring all the artists that had been showcased that week, which was a great ending to the day.
Next time we are in Barbados, where some people left the cruise and some joined it. We had another week to do so we were pleased! Join me next time for a tour of Barbados.
