St. John (3)

Annaberg Sugar Plantation was built at the time when the American Virgin Islands were Danish. Like on most Caribbean islands, plantation owners grew sugar, cotton, and indigo.
This particular plantation has rocky soil and steep ravines. Work here must have been harsh. The slaves had no time to admire the turquoise sea.

We were driven around in these colorful buses.
One more peaceful bay.
