The GLONASS operation is fine and we continue our round-the-world yacht trip, exploring the Caribbean islands.
Beside the beauty Martinique, its plain sister Dominica, the motherland of the tribe of Kalinago, is snuggling. Not in the sense of the nature’s beauty – it’s so fabulous that it takes your breath away.
But in the sense of its social structure, so to say.
When Christopher Columbus landed on the island, he named it Dominica in honor of the day of the week on which he discovered it, that is, Sunday (Lat. Dominicus), November 3, 1493.
The view of the Dominica Marine Center was depressing.
We had to bind with a rope to a palm ashore. Do you see the rope?
That rope was exactly 30 meters long. I measured it myself when buying it.
We decided once again to test the operation of the GLONASS system, what if it lied? The device showed that the distance from the yacht to the shore was 0.015 miles, or 30 meters.
It turns out that GLONASS can be used to measure the length of a rope.
As for us, after looking at the local mafia on luxurious limos,
pelicans sitting on broken lanterns,
and unobtrusive tourist and yacht service (they asked 60 USD per person for a bus trip to the waterfalls)
We decided to get out.
But we were given a hint that it would be great to buy the flag of the Independent Dominica for 25 bucks. After hearing that, Lena took a brush and quickly painted the flag on a cloth.
In general, Dominica is a beauty
There is one-eyed fish
GLONASS is running. The signal is excellent!
