The lore and lure of pirates is alive in Dominica; in fact, two of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies were filmed here.
Dominica is a volcanic island and it is the effects of those volcanoes we're hoping to experience today as we hire a taxi driver, Julia, to take ...
... the shoreline - which was not sandy, it was rocky, so you had to be careful not to slip. As most of us, including Zahir, got into the water, Joanna and Beth decided not to join us.
