Labadee, Haiti

I just recently returned from a trip to the Caribbean where I visited Hispaniola, an island shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic.  The village of Labadee is located on the northern coast of Haiti.  One of the oldest structures in Labadee is Nellie’s Place which once served as a trading post there.  Hibiscus flowers are common in the Caribbean, and Haiti is no exception.  Small boats are anchored offshore.
