We arrived in Roseau, Dominica this morning about 8 a.m. We had to tender into shore because there was no room for our ship at the docks. Disembarking took a while. We walked to the dock where we were to meet the boat to take us whale watching only to find out our boat had left earlier with the wrong crew (all those cruise ship people look alike). We had a wait on the dock but Joan and I took an opportunity to shop for some jewelry at the little market near the dock. Got some great necklaces for $8. Made from bamboo and brightly colored.

Eventually we got on the boat and went to look for Sperm whales. Evidently this is one of the few places that one can see them. After several tries, we ended up not seeing Sperm whales but we did see dolphins. The dolphins loved the wake of the boat and played in the wake. Fun to watch. Most of the people snorkled off the boat. People loved it. I didn't do it. Was a little seasick too. Because our boat was late, they brought lunch aboard and we ate on the boat and had more rum punch. We had to be back on the ship by 3 pm.

I always enjoy watching the ship leave port. We had dinner on the outside deck as usual.

Dominica sounds like an interesting island -- it has the world's largest boiling lake. The island has rain forest and some dry areas. Wish we could spend more time on the islands.
