Reef Bay, St. John
It's not called Reef Bay for nothing. As this picture shows, it's a shallow V-shaped bay that is dominated by a reef.
Reef Bay is also the site of a steam-powered sugar mill. A second steam-powered mill is at Adrian.
The Reed Bay plantation was the last sugar factory to close in 1916.

Also known as the Warehouse District, these long buildings go from the Waterfront to Main Street. In these buildings were stored all the goods the islands produced at the hands of slaves: sugar, rum, tobacco, and cotton to name a few.
Red Hook, St. Thomas is the major ferry hub for St. John and the British islands of Tortola and Virgin Gorda. This is a little video I took of the ferry coming into the dock at Red Hook. As the boat turns you can see St. John on the right and Tortola, BVI in the center distance.
