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

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


Notting Hill Carnival 2006

We are in the first week of March which is recognized as Women’s History Month but there are many people around the region who would not have paid attention to this very important celebration.

For some of us there is still a small matter of getting over the Haiti earthquake disaster, followed so quickly by another in Chile. Meanwhile, there is the ongoing concern over the prevailing drought conditions.

The irony of this entire setting is that women will have to play an important role in ensuring that all of the societies spoke of above get over the hurdles they are facing and are able to move to the next level of reconstruction or development.

The fact is, there have been lots remarkable strong women who would have and who still continue to give sterling service to the their country and race.

Women like our very own Dame Eugenia Charles (former Prime Minister of Dominica) or Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliams, Miss World Jennifer Hosten of Grenada, and athletes like Merle Ottey must be allowed to retain top spots as women who have done much and who are deserving of having their names in a special bracket of Caribbean life.

The responsibility is on this generation to ensure that many of our great Caribbean women are spoken and written about and place in areas of spotlight that will let everyone know who they are and why they have been elevated.

And what is it that we say? That charity begins at home?

For those who consider the island to be as important as the Caribbean vacation, Dominica island have long provided amazing views and a sense of adventure.

Here are five wanderlust photos we’ve hand-picked from our large Dominica photo collection over the years. These images remind us of how fortunate we’re to be living on such an incredible island filled with dramatic black-sand beaches, thick rainforest and beautiful coastal woodlands.

Fair warning to viewers: these images are shockingly attractive and have been known to induce the desire to come to Dominica, those who gaze upon them.

In an effort to minimize the amount of criminal activities, and to ease the amount of traffic in flowing through city of Roseau, the police have stepped up their game by developing a National Security plan during the Independence Reunion Season.

The plan includes barricading some streets during the World Creole Music Festival and Creole in the Park.

Accordingly to the police, there will be a low tolerance for non-compliance with traffic laws and there is a strong chance that person’s vehicles will be towed. With some 27,000 licensed drivers, 19,000 licensed motor vehicles – and with about 6000 vehicles crossing through Roseau daily could cause some serious problems.

Dominica Grammar School court, the Newtown Savannah, Lindo Park and Pottersville Savannah will be used for parking at a small fee – with police patrol to unsure safety.

IMPORTANT: On the evenings of the Creole Festival (Oct 31st- Nov 2nd), there will be no parking on Valley Road on either side from the junction of Bath Road, to the Bath Estate Bridge. Residents of River Street will be allowed to park on River Street and will be issued a national pass to River Street motorists to identify them. Also there will be no parking on either sides of Independence Street from the E.C Loblack Bridge to Kennedy Avenue, Cork Street and from the junction of Bath Road to Great George Street.

During Creole in the Park (Oct 27 – Oct 30) arrangements have been made so that parents picking up their children from school can park in Botanic Gardens from 12:30 to 2:30pm.
