What an amazing two weeks!

We arrived in St Croix, the third island in the US Virgin Islands Group, and spent a few days sightseeing in Christiansted, the capital of St Croix. The town is small with lovely old architectural buildings. Verandas and arches everywhere, with shutters on all windows, both for security and safety in Hurricane Season. The shutters all bar from the outside.

One of the old mills right on the waterfront, now a bar.
