Location: Dominica

The Argo crew took a grand tour of the island courtesy of SeaCat and Stowe (formerly known as Batman). Our tour was essentially of gastronomical nature and I have never eaten more exotic fruit in one day. We sampled everything from lime covered sugar cane (nature’s lemonade) to fresh pounded cocoa to soursop to watermelon. In between we tasted mangoes, oranges, papayas, lemongrass, cassava cakes, coconuts, and my absolute favorite, grapefruit picked fresh from the tree. SeaCat and Stowe were most wonderful guides and finished our day in Dominica with a stop at two enormous waterfalls for a cold water bath because SeaCat told us “with SeaCat tours, you always stay clean.” After a dip under the falls we soaked in some of the hot springs that seem to flow from every nook and cranny in this land of 365 rivers. It was a truly wonderful day on the island and as our vans steamed up and down the narrow mountain roads on our way back to Argo, blasting “Cash Money” reggae with SeaCat jiving in the driver’s seat, I recalled his advice from 8am that morning: “let’s just relax now and see what comes our way.”andlt;hr width=’100’/andgt;andlt;div align=’center’andgt;andlt;tableandgt;andlt;trandgt;andlt;tdandgt;andlt;
