A walk to the south

I thought I would try walking a different route one morning–going south around the hill where we live. It’s called Cay Bay, and is where the power plant is that powers the Dutch side of the island.

Here are some pictures of the power plant, and looking up towards a famous look-out point often used by visitors to get good pictures of Simpson Bay. These were taken from a local cemetery that is by the beach.

Oil tankers come to the island almost every day to fill the tanks that will power the diesel generators that power our lights.

As you turn the corner, and almost completely out of sight, is a whole village of homes and what looks like a hotel. I think this was an area that was once a promising area for tourists, but may have declined due to the presence of the power plant.

I assume this is here to do laundry for all the local hotels

All I saw was dogs, and it didn’t look like much of a paradise to me…

There are a lot of small churches on the island. Some are hard to find. Here is a small one attached to the side of a local grocery store.

It was a good 3 mile walk, always ending up slogging up the hill to our apartment–always the hardest part of the walk!
