The Battery, Cruz Bay, St. John
Most of the island's administrators have lived in it and several government offices are located here.
This is the Battery taken from the other side, looking across what we called the Creek. The building to the far right is where we used to pick up our mail. It was general delivery for all of us on the island. However, we had an actual box, a cardboard box, into which the post mistress put all our mail.
Brown Bay, St. John - Site of some of the most beautiful sugar plantation ruins on the island.
Bordeaux Mountain - The highest point on St. John at 1277 feet.

Bluebeard's Castle, St. Thomas was built sometime in the late 1600s. There is no connection to pirates either at Bluebeard's or Blackbeard's Castle. They were towers built by the Danes to keep watch against possible invasion by the British.
