Green Musings of an Eco Resort

Saturday, June 11, 2011

While on vacation for the week there's a very good chance you'll stumble upon historic ruins, usually on purpose but sometimes by chance. There are quite a few different sugar plantations, rum distilleries, great houses, windmills, and customs houses scattered about St. John.

A handful of ruins on St. John are now frequently visited by our rapidly increasing deer population, and not by chance if they have plenty of green grass available. While visiting the ruins at Cinnamon recently these two deer gave me a look as if to say "please come back later, we're eating right now."

If you hear a rumbling in the bush behind your tent early in the morning or in the early evening hours there's a good chance you're hearing or about to see a deer.
