No Burgers in Paradise

15 January 2010 | Roseau
After checking out my alternator non issue - I guess it's been so long since my batteries have been fully charged I forgot what it looks like to have it only charge 15 amps. This morning it was back to charging 70 amps like normal.
I had a nice quiet sail down the coast of Dominica - a very different island than what I have seen up til now. Very picturesque. Rain forest and high peaked mountains.
I stopped in the capital city of Roseau and was able to pick up a mooring. Geez, I was just getting used to being in 45-50 feet of water. I have had chain out that hasn't seen the light of day since it came out of the box.
So, on the way in, as is the custom here, I was approached by 2 boat boys. Roots, who is mentioned in the guide books, had to get rid of one of his competitors. He did this by ramming the other guys boat. I thought he was just going to scare him and veer off, but he actually rammed him. After some words and finger pointing, the other guy left ( and at high speed). Can you imagine someone fighting over you in the 1000 Islands.
Roots helped me get the mooring, took me to the customs dock and then dropped me off in town. All for a modest fee of course. He then picked me up and dropped me back off at the boat.
I had a nice afternoon exploring the town.
One thing I have noticed on the last few islands, they only have KFC. (Kentucky Fried Chicken). Of all the franchises that they could have had, that is the only one they have.
So, I guess on this island, there are no burgers......but it is paradise all the same.
On to Fort De France in Martinique tomorrow.
