Montserrat, Les Saintes, Dominica

Past few weeks have had Victoria and I island hopping down the Leeward Islands. Our trip has been relatively uneventful, weather cooperative, with many wonderful and magical sites of the islands. Each island is unique to itself, with its own personality. Montserrat was particularly incredible with its active volcano. The local population seems to take it in stride! Hiking to the top of the lookout overlooking Les Saintes was amazing. Past few days we have been in Dominica, where the terrain is the most rugged I've seen anywhere short of the Grand Canyon. Waterfalls, hot springs and cool river pools. Ferns as big as trees! And of course, the little critters abound. Next stop...Martinique.
BTW, Victoria is also keeping a blog, and you can find her blog at:
