Dominica Blogger

I was very pleased when I found, via the BlogRush widget on this page, a blog called Dominica Weekly. It has been a long time since I've been to Dominica, but it is a place that still lives very vividly in my mind. In fact, there are certain smells that bring it back to me so clearly that I feel I am there.

Dominica (not the Dominican Republic) is known as the Nature Island of the Caribbean, and it is very aptly names. The mountains that seem to just rise up out of the blue sea, the lush jungle covering the faces of the mountains, and the ever-clear blue sky is the very definition of a Nature Island. There are numerous rivers, and good beaches on which to take a nice "sea bath."

This is the first time I have come across a blogger from Dominica, so I am very glad to have found the place. I'm off now to inform familyfunandfaith. I don't know anyone who loves Dominica more than he does.

Thanks for the heads up. I made a comment on the story about changing the name of the island. I am sure I will stop by there soon.

Hello, My name is Alex.
I found your blog, and decided that you are interested. I am a member of the action team project, which was created to open the eyes of society to the problems associated with the impact of the construction of oil refineries in Dominica.
We would like to draw attention to the matter of your community here and listen to the views of all residents of Dominica, like the island of whom, and who is interested in nature and the environment. We for our part are ready to place the project site information about your community, links to sites, etc.

Address our project: www.dominica-oil.com

Hi Alex,
I have added the button to my sidebar. I certainly hope that this oil refinery is not built in Dominica! I can't imagine letting that beauty be spoiled by an oil refinery.

Thanks for making me aware.
