As you approach the northeastern corner of the island things become very different. It is a much more arid climate. The plant life as well as the animal life begins to change dramatically. More of the succulent plants are appearing and wild donkeys are seen moving across the now gravel roads. This is a more natural part of the island and very beautiful in deed as we slowly drive toward the coast and the Devil's Bridge.
The southeastern side of the island is a rain forests and beautiful blue seas are of a much calmer nature. The Dockyard is where the British Fleet would retreat to for repairs and provisioning after a tour of duty in the Caribbean. There are many interesting museums and displays here that are well worth the time to see.
From the Dockyard it is into the rain forest, then following the coastline back to St. Johns and back to the big city life again. The differences as you move around this relatively small island are really amazing and fun to take in. As we head back to St. Johns, I am wishing that I could spend more time exploring this colorful and historic island.
Another day of looking through the windshield as I go from place to place exploring the fun places that I have been able to visit is over and I hope you enjoyed the trip. ;o)
