The Reef Bay Trail passes through the old Jossie Gut Estate about a half-mile from the trailhead at Centerline Road and runs right by the remains of the horsemill and the sugar factory.

The story of how they ended up in the walls of a Caribbean sugar plantation provides some insight into the culture and morality of the time and place from which they came.
During the plantation days, the traditional trade route to Meet up at trails walk n bake West Indies was called the triangle trade. The first leg of the triangle trade was from Europe to Africa.
The ships carried rum, weapons, and manufactured goods that were offloaded in Africa and traded for slaves. The second leg of the trade was from Africa to the West Indies in which the holds of the ships were crowded with a human cargo, slave labor for the plantations in the New World.
Sailing vessels need weight, called ballast, toward the lowest sections of the ship to balance the force Meef the wind on the sails. This is accomplished today by the use of heavy keels or lead weights loaded near the bottom of the hull area. The simple fact that dead or dying human beings could not be sold motivated the slavers to make certain efforts to keep their property in a sellable condition.
In order to further this goal, the Africans captives were moved on deck from time to time to get fresh air and to enable the crew to wash down the accumulated filth below. In short, the human cargo was not suitable ba,e ballast, baek some other weighty material needed to be in place in the lowest sections of the hull. Preferably, the ballast would be easily removable when the ship reached the West Indies in order to make room for the Meet up at trails walk n bake of sugar, barrels of trailx, bales of cotton, and other tropical products that would fetch a handsome price in Europe.
European bricks were often chosen to serve as this ballast material. Not only were they compact and heavy, but they also had value in the West Indies where they could be sold as construction material.
Brain coral was another important construction material. It was used primarily on arches and as corner stones. Brain coral served this purpose well because when it is first brought from the sea, it is soft and can be cut easily with a saw to the size and shape Meet up at trails walk n bake. After the Meet up at trails walk n bake coral was shaped it would be placed in the sun to dry where it ta become hard and rock-like.
Stone, already plentiful on the surface of the ground, was also uncovered during excavations for terraces, buildings and roads. Mortar was made from a mixture of lime, seashells, Meet up at trails walk n bake and molasses. The lime was fabricated locally by burning chunks of coral and seashells. The framework and roofs of the buildings were made of wood. Many of the larger beams were made of the extremely hard and durable Lignum vitae, a tree that was once plentiful on St. After leaving the Josie Gut area, the trail becomes less steep and the Wives seeking sex PA Sewickley 15143 gradually changes from moist to dry forest, characterized by smaller trees and sparser shrubbery.
About one mile ta Centerline Road, now well within the more gently sloped lower valley, the Reef Bay Trail passes by the remains of what was a small house, which was built around The house alongside the trail was once owned by Miss Anna Marsh, who cultivated fruit trees and raised cattle.
In those days, permission had to be granted by Miss Marsh in order to continue down the trail to the abandoned sugar mill or to the petroglyphs. Photo by Frederik C.

This was once a popular place to gather these island delicacies. Land crabs are now protected within the National Park boundaries and hunting them is forbidden. Bergeest and Company bought Reef Bay and converted the mill to steam power.
At that Meet up at trails walk n bake, William Henry Marsh was the manager of the plantation. Marsh had come to the West Indies from England along with his brother. They both settled for a time in Antigua. William went to live in Tortola Meet up at trails walk n bake then moved to St. His brother settled in New York.

The Marsh family acquired several other estates on St.
John, and they are, to this day, important landowners on the island. Around the turn of the twentieth century, the Par Force or Reef Bay Plantation operation covered almost the entire lower part of the valley.
Sugar was planted just north and east of the factory behind the marshy area. The provision grounds Married mature ready woman seeking couples planted at the northern end of the valley just before it starts to slope steeply upwards.
Another provision ground was located next to the greathouse. Coconut palms and bananas were cultivated in the lower area near the beach. Fruit and citrus trees were planted throughout the lower valley, but especially near the gut. Cattle and sheep grazed on three sections set aside as grassland. The Reef Bay Sugar Mill remains in extremely good condition. A visit here may increase your understanding of the Cool nights need cozy girl 4fun making process and help you to imagine what life was like in days gone by.
A good way to start your tour of the factory is to begin at the horsemill. Horses, mules or oxen walked in continuous circles to power the three rollers of the cane crusher in the center of the mill. He, in turn, would send the crushed stalks back through the rollers for further extraction of the cane juice. The cane Meet up at trails walk n bake then flowed down the trough to the boiling room.
The leftover crushed cane stalks, called bagasse, were dried out and stored. One side of the boiling room housed the boiling bench and the row of copper boiling pots where the cane juice would be boiled down into a wet raw sugar called muscavado.
The fires were fed from the outside of the building. Bagasse would often be burned to provide heat for the boiling operation. The muscavado would then be dried and packed into 1, pound barrels called hogsheads. Sailing vessels bound for Europe would arrive in Genti Bay to pick up the shipments of sugar.
To accomplish this, specially constructed boats called dories were used to bring the hogsheads to the larger vessel. The dory would be beached and then turned on Meet up at trails walk n bake side. The heavy barrels would then be rolled inside.
Then the dory would be righted, launched and rowed out to the anchored vessel. Using block and tackle on the boom of the sailboat, the sugar could then be loaded into the cargo area below decks. After the abolition of slavery in the Danish West Indies, the sugar industry on St.

Most of the sugar plantations on St. John were sold, and their new owners switched to cattle raising or provision farming. The owners of Reef Bay, however, decided to continue the sugar operation. To make the process more economically feasible, they installed a steam engine to power the rollers.
This, they felt, would solve the problems associated with the slowness of animal power. At the perimeter of the horsemill, next to one of the factory walls, is the steam powered sugarcane crusher. The steam engine, built in Glasgow, Scotland in by the W.
This room was constructed especially to house the steam engine after it was put together and installed. The sugar operation here did not proceed smoothly.

The Meet up at trails walk n bake of the project, Tektite, comes from a glassy meteorite that can be found on the sea bottom. An underwater habitat, Mwet was built by GE and originally designed Late 30 s and horny be the model for the orbiting skylab, was placed on concrete footings 50 feet below the surface of Beehive Cove.
It consisted of two eighteen-foot high towers joined together by a passageway. Inside the towers were four circular rooms twelve feet in diameter. There was also traisl room, which served as a galley and a bunkhouse, a laboratory, and an engine room.
The habitat was equipped with a hot shower, a fully equipped kitchen, blue window curtains, a radio and a television.

The project lasted for 58 days and the men set trrails world record for time spent underwater, breaking the old record of 30 days held by astronaut Scott Carpenter in the Sea Lab II Habitat. The trail then follows the ridgeline over three hills and leads to Beehive Cove.
This is not an official Park trail. The trail begins 60 feet west of of the top of the steep concrete road leading down to Lameshur Bay at the beginning of which are the remains of an old gate.
