Our time in St. Croix was an absolute delight, but our visit flew by much too quickly. We’d planned on staying 3 days and ended up staying 5, all for the price of three days! Berthing, water, electricity, and TV if we wanted it, all for just a bit over $100. Hard to believe.
We spent plenty of time just wandering around the marina and resort property. Our environment was wonderful with plenty to see and do. The pool, restaurant, tiki bar, hammocks in the swaying palms; what more could we desire?
We loved St. Croix, not just for the great marina deal, but for the island and its people. We rented a car to explore. First was a visit to the St. Croix Yacht Club – closed on the day we were there and only open on the week ends – bummer.
Then we drove off to the very eastern tip of the island where we gazed across the waters of the vast Eastern Caribbean sea and then pondered the Millennium Monument which urges unity among all peoples and nations.
Then we wandered along the south coast to see what we could find. We drove past the island’s electrical power generation plant, and a closed aluminum processing facility. The combined property was immense, with structures going on for miles. It was hard to fathom why the aluminum plant would close when it clearly had been both a major employer and a huge boon to the economy.
