Hurricane Maria just made landfall as a Category 5 on the most beautiful and luscious island in the Caribbean...I'm dreading what we'll find in the morning; it is likely to cause the same destruction that we've seen in Sint Maartin, the BVIs, Barbuda and other islands though hopefully the mountains will block the worst.
Dominica is a relatively poor island and an independent country. But their citizens have a lot of pride. Listen to the words of Dominica's national anthem by Martin--a local who showed us around and rowed us up and down the Indian River when we visited a few months ago. Beautiful.
You can see some more of that beauty below and in a previous post 'Martinique to Dominica'
Rick and Linda Grimes bought a sailboat and left the U S of A for the Caribbean in 2015.
