Dominica

What a stunning green island Dominica is, aptly described as the only one that Christopher Columbus would recognise if he arrived back today. Lush forests and plantations abound. The island is recovering still from hurricane Maria three years ago and headless palm trees remind you of its path.

We supported the local economy by doing a great tour with Eddison (recommended if you are planning on coming here) and saw chocolate making, waterfalls, plantations and local villages. We drove up near vertical roads and weaved round hairpin bends, all to the boys delight.

Seeing chocolate from bean to bar was fabulous and no trip is complete without some tasting.

What a great view from work!

A lovely trip on a great island and two very happy boys!

  1. Well it all looks fabulous, you lucky things! Very jealous! We’re battening down the hatches once again for a 2nd storm in a week, both over weekends! This time we’ll be in Dartmouth! Helping to clear U Chris loft space, sure that’ll be fun! Wendy has moved from the village into Shipston & Henry, her son, has moved next door with wife Pips & their 3 children which is nice. More kiddies in the village. We’re currently building Richards man shed at the bottom of the garden, I think he might move down there! It’s to replace all our other crumbling sheds! Glad to hear you’re all having fun especially the boys, what a fantastic experience. Hope they’re writing diaries as part of their homework! Keep sending the updates. Love Colette & Richard xx

    Ps Richard said you may want to know HS2 has been approved by Boris!

    1. Thanks Colette, great to hear your news. The boys are very excited that there are more children in the village and we look forward to meeting them in due course. Hope the storm is not to bad and Dartmouth trip goes well.
