Friday Photo Spotlight on St Kitts

Photo Credits - Travel 2 the Caribbean 


Saman Tree or  "Rain Tree"

Located at Romney Manor in St Kitts, this magnificent Saman Tree is 350 years old, 24 feet in diameter and covers half an acre! 

Romney Manor is a 10-acre estate which was once owned by Sam Jefferson II, the great great great grandfather of American President Thomas Jefferson


Today Romney Manor is a favorite tourist stop, and is home to beautiful botanical gardens along with Caribelle Batik.

Visit the Caribelle Batik factory, and view a demonstration of how Sea Island cotton is turned into beautiful batik items - hot wax is used to dye the fabric. 

I purchased a batik dress and sarong years ago, and the colors are still vibrant - Caribelle Batik is a must buy! Check out the site - http://www.caribellebatikstkitts.com/
