Friday morning we woke up early and headed to Roseau. From there we went up to Victoria falls. The hick to the falls was nothing short of a challenge with the backpacks on our backs! We hiked up the river for about 2 hours and found a nice camping spot next to some falls. Realizing it would be far too late to return since the sun was about to set, we made camp there! hoping the water wouldn’t rise midway through the night. The background noise of the falls made it easy to fall asleep.
The second night we found ourselves camping at scotts-head, the southernmost tip of the island. It was Saturday which meant very little buses actually worked. We walked for quite a few miles and hitched hiked our way to campaign reef! It is supposedly the best snorkeling place in Dominica, so of course we put on our gear and went in the water! Beautiful reefs. fish everywhere. We were able to spot an Eel and a couple lion fish, which obviously got me scared. Heading down to scottshead i got in the water once again, exploring the reefs in the area by our campsite. We watched the sunset on the hilltop and i was fortunate enough to see a boat drive past with dolphins jumping at its tail.
The third night was spent on a private beach with a river to our left, black sand bellow us and immense peace. We had walked a lot once again to get to that area, which we found by accident. When we saw the river and perfect ocean swimming spot we jumped at the chance to stay there. After a relaxing swim at the ocean, a nice shower at the river, some conversation as the sun fell, we headed to bed. Clean. Tired. At peace.
The trip is sadly coming to an end:( We have one week left, and i plan to make it the best week so far!
I will see you all soon
