Rainforest, Waterfalls and Fierce Ants

We are still in Dominica but planning to leave today on an overnight sail to Nevis about 120 miles NW.
We have had a great time here despite the very stormy weather.
We hired a car for a couple of days which we shared with Dogh and Heather from Kalluna.
On Monday we spent the day driving the car across to the Atlantic coast and right round the central part of the island. We visited many interesting places including the Hampstead sugar mill ruins, Jacko Falls, Trafalgar Falls and Titou Gorge. It was a great day out.
On Tuesday we took the car up and over the Northern Link Road (NLR), the views were absolutely breathtaking through the tropical rainforest. We hiked up to the Bna Nef Falls. It was a good well maintained path up the gorge through lush vegetation to the spectacular waterfall. We met no other tourists at all.
On Wednesday we took the lower Cabrit trail across to Douglas Bay. On route I brushed against a tree covered in very fierce biting ants and my left forearm still has large sore welts days later.
We have not had any significant interest from prospective purchasers for Infinity B yet ... fingers crossed!
