Dominica’s first, and to date only, female prime minister, Dame Mary Eugenia Charles also has the distinction of being the nation’s longest-serving prime minister. The street running along the waterfront in the old part of Roseau is named in her honour. The ferry dock for Martinique, Guadeloupe and other islands is along this street. As is a luxury hotel – formerly a fort and colonial police station – where we splurged one night, and our favourite spot for breakfast – the CocoRico Café.
An easy hike through the rainforest leads to the twin falls (nicknamed the Mother and the Father) near the village of Trafalgar. A few pleasant surprises this morning: hot sulphur pools in which to to bathe alongside the path and being joined by Steve for the hike and other activities of the day. Thanks mon amour!
