Fish Bay Ghut
I have a series on how my sister, Erva, and I "discovered" the Fish Bay Ghut back when I was eight she was twelve. It was quite an adventure. Part One is HERE. Part Two is HERE. And Part Three is HERE.
The Fish Bay Ghut has a place where it drops off a good fifty or more feet, which makes for a spectacular waterfall when it rains. It is one of the few places on the island where there was water year round.

The Frederik Lutheran Church, St. Thomas was established in 1666, the same year the Danish West India Company took formal possession of the island but the building of this church wasn't completed until 1793.
As with most all of these older churches, the pews and interior were made from native mahogany because it is not eaten by the local termites.
