Annaly Bay Hike and Geocache

Last Sunday afternoon we joined the St. Croix Hiking Association for a wonderful hike on the Trunbull Trail. The trail starts behind Carambola Beach Resort, on the Northwest corner of St. Croix.

It works its way up a ridge overlooking the north shore, and then descends to the Annaly Tide Pools.

The trail is shaded most of the way, with lots of interesting trees, such as this guy whose name I don't know, but looks like it's been in one too many bar fights.

Or this one, officially known as a Turpentine Tree, and locally called The Tourist Tree because it's red and peeling all over.

We took a quick detour to the ruins of an old sugar mill.

A nest of bees are now the official residents of this sugar mill.

The surf was high at Annaly Bay.

Some brave souls still hiked around the rocks to make it to the tide pools.

I watched from a rocky perch, and then got busy finding the geocache, located at N 17° 45.793 W 064° 50.723.

I took a mini microscope, and left behind one of my creations: a quilted bookmark.
