Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Merry Christmas

This Christmas many of us are focused on celebrating and exchanging gifts but we should not forget to give thanks for the best gift of all.

The gifts of vast areas of pristine rainforest and green-topped mountains generously sprinkled with exotic rivers, streams and waterfalls.

No one in Dominica, even those who live in the heart of Roseau (Capital), is ever more than a few minutes away from up-spoilt nature.

Dominica does not have the sprawling white sand beaches of other Caribbean islands. However, in most places here the water’s edge is not overrun by commercial activities, giving us the very special gift of a fresh, peaceful and private seaside ambiance.

Other countries have similar natural attractions, but they’re usually in far-off regions. Our gift is that our nature sites are concentrated in a relatively small area, making them unusually accessible to residents and visitors. Almost without exception, our natural wonders are never more than a few hours away.

Let’s keep these gifts in mind when we go to church at Christmas to give our Creator His due. We must remember these gifts as we join with our families, friends and neighbours to eat our Christmas treats, and enjoy the holidays.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
