Snorkeling at Scott's Head

We drove down to Scott's Head for snorkeling this morning. It was a beautiful, warm day, as usual in Dominica - what a place. Scott's Head is located on a long sand spit with a very protected snorkeling area. It also has a convenient rock at water's edge we used for balance in putting on our fins and masks. Once out in the water, we found an area with lots of brightly colored sponges. There were not many fish and we thought they may have served locally for food. The ones we did see were quite small but it was still a good snorkel. I took lots of photos as usual and samples are included.

The trip there in the car is a real adventure with the lack of a shoulder and, in fact, a sheer drop where the side of the road ends. With oncoming traffic squeezing you over it can be quite exciting careening along. We usually missed by inches, literally, the oncoming traffic. We saw another beautiful sunset over rum punch. Can't think of a much better way to spend a winter's day!
