Southern Caribbean Cruising — Dominica; Scotts Head

Welcome to Roseau, Dominica

Time to step off the ship and head out toward the pickup point for our tour. But before we start heading south here’s another view of the hurricane damaged Our Lady of Fair Haven Cathedral and the Bethesda Methodist Church standing in the foreground:

Along the way to where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean we would pass by Government House, the official residence of the president of Dominica:

About halfway to our destination we went through Pointe Michel, where we discovered the charming St. Luke Catholic Church:

And about half an hour later we alighted from the bus in Scotts Head. Here, on this small spit of land protruding out into the sea, is where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. You can tell the difference immediately, as the Caribbean side is relatively calm:

While on the other side the Atlantic Ocean rages is a loud surf:

The nearby village of Scotts Head gives you some fun photos featuring local colors. Here is Scotts Head Village from the Caribbean side:

Of course the boats stay on the calmer Scotts Bay side, which gives you colorful scenes such as this:
