Pictured below is our weekly Snorkeling Club outing. My first outing with the group. Today we went to Douglas bay. It's littered in a bit, but there is so much life out there! I got to know a lot about snorkeling and the sea life there. Elizabeth Schriver kind of showed me the ropes.
i know, i know! i'm so sorry i haven't posted more about Dominica! I've been on the island 9½ days but i feel like I've been here for a month. or more. The kids are in their summer camp, I've made a lot of bread and new friends. I've built black sand castles, taken a million taxis, been devoured by mosquitoes, and seen a ton of crabs- they live in holes all over just like groundhogs or prairie dogs. We've got some huge ones living in the lot next to our house so whenever I come out at night to do laundry I see their beady eyes staring at me as they shuffle back in their holes. The ocean is so close that after only a week the novelty has worn off. The Caribbean sea is so calm. The waves gently lap on the shore- there is no way you'd be able to surf on it. At least not where I've been. It's the perfect temperature- a tiny bit cool when you get in, but you get used to it after 30 seconds. Tomorrow I go snorkeling )
I promise i'll post more pictures and a play by play of the end of my trip, but i saw a video just nowthat i wanted to share. I like it so here you go.
