Windjammer Cruise on the Mandalay


May 21st through June 1st, 2001


Dominica (754 sq km area) was the last of the Caribbean islands to be colonized by Europeans, due chiefly to the fierce resistance of the native Caribs. France ceded possession to Great Britain in 1763, which made the island a colony in 1805. In 1980, two years after independence, Dominica's fortunes improved when a corrupt and tyrannical administration was replaced by that of Mary Eugenia Charles, the first female prime minister in the Caribbean, who remained in office for 15 years.

Virgin rainforests, hundreds of waterfalls and 160 species of birds.

We had a BBQ dinner at The Anchorage Hotel on Dominica.
