Fort Shirley, Dominica

The three-masted Dutch schooner rests at anchor off Fort Shirley, Portsmouth, Dominica. The fort is an 18th century British fort.

Pat and Jeff, Beach House, along with Robert and Daisie look over the anchorage.

The Battery is an easy hike through the forest. Finding the site was a "Harrison Ford" type of experience when revealed through the dim rainforest, seemingly untouched in the past 150 years.

The remains of the Commandant's residence left us with many questions about what it may have once been.
