Little Princess Nature Conservance
The Nature Conservancy has it all: flowering trees and bushes, a pristine lawn, and well-preserved historical buildings and ruins. There's the old hospital, still in use for the Conservancy's offices; the main house with it's welcoming arms entry staircase, covered verandas, and cool front room with huge windows open to the views; the sugar mill that you can walk around; and finally the ruins of the overseer's cottage and rum factory, complete with chimney... it's a visual reminder of St. Croix's history! We love it! Although the flamboyant was a week past full bloom you can see that it still captured our fancy as did the views of and from the site. All told, it was a lovely morning, spent in one of St. Croix's special places!
