Location: Rousseau, Dominica

We left Martinique this morning, accompanied by the sounds of carnival still going strong from the town of St. Pierre. We set our sails north towards Dominica and sailed past the rest of Martinique, spotting a pod of dolphins heading in the opposite direction. We had a very windy lunch underway and got into Dominica around 3 o’clock, welcomed in by our local guide, Pancho. We dropped anchor and then tied up our stern to a palm tree on the shore. After we were secure, we got the boat organized again, and everyone jumped in for shower time. Rachel prepared a fabulous dinner of chicken parmesan, and we settled into a night of classes: a marine bio slideshow on reptiles followed by a student leadership development class.
