I was hoping for a speck of sunshine so I could snap a nice bright picture of the marriage of my red buds and dogwood trees. The contrast of the two always amaze me.
But…. NO sunshine - so for today you get only a soggy picture with a promise of sunny day pictures SOON (I hope).
And what you also get is a dose of where my mind goes when it rains for too long of a time – and that my friends is the Rainforest of Dominica. Imagine trees forming a canopy so thick overhead that even though it is raining, you aren’t getting wet. That is a rain forest. The water in the stream leading to the waterfall was crystal clear. The scenery overlooking the countryside as we strayed from the beaten path was breathtaking.
So, on this oh so dreary, rainy day, I thought it would be nice to share some of my Dominica Rainforest pictures. I hope you enjoy them.
I walked the narrow path to behind the waterfall for this picture. Why I didn’t take a picture of the path is beyond me, but I didn’t… I was scared at first – the path was a combination of small and boulder type rocks and they were WET. I expected to slip and slide all the way, but strangely, the rocks were not slick at all. I am a chicken at heart when it comes to things like this, so I was secretly proud of myself for venturing forward. I was disappointed nobody took a picture of me proudly standing under the waterfall. But, I can’t blame Jim this time… I had the camera. Proof is the picture of him that I took from my side of the waterfall.
