The owner of the eco-boutique Rosalie Bay Resort, Beverly Deikel, has been featured in the latest episode of the EX-PATS series, entitled "Baby Turtles in Dominica from Grandbabies in Minneapolis.
" The former Minnesota native moved to Dominica more than 10 years ago, and now calls the Caribbean island home.
In the 20-minute episode, host Savannah Jane Buffet travels to Dominica and joins Beverly at Rosalie Bay Resort. The episode, which is available for on-demand viewing on YouTube, shares Beverly's inspiring journey to the Nature Island, leaving behind her children and grandchildren in Minnesota to create the eco resort, save the endangered sea turtles and find love.
In addition to Rosalie Bay Resort, the EX-PATS episode showcases many other locations on Dominica. Savannah and Beverly spent time at the famous twin waterfalls of Trafalgar Falls, set sail on a catamaran to view stunning coastal views of the island, met with Simon George, President of the Nature Enhancement Team (NET) at Rosalie Bay, and had the incredible opportunity to witness baby Green sea turtles emerge from the nest and venture out to sea.
"It has been an incredible honor to be selected by Travel + Leisure and included in the EX-PATS show," says Beverly Deikel, owner of Rosalie Bay Resort. "The unsurpassed natural beauty of Dominica first captured my attention, but it is the people and the sea turtles that have captured my heart. I hope this show inspires more people to visit the Nature Island and follow their dreams."
EX-PATS is a video series that airs on the Reserve Channel on YouTube. The series is in cooperation with Travel + Leisure magazine and profiles ex-patriates who made the leap to move to another country. The episode was filmed in October 2012.
