View from Timothy Hill

This set of photos was taken on a morning run from our hotel to the Southern Peninsula of St. Kitts and back. The Timothy Hill scenic view is pretty popular, as one can capture a view of the Atlantic on the left and Caribbean on the right side of the island. On my morning run I shared the view with a green vervet monkey.

After descending the hill, I ran to a spot on the map which I thought would show a shipwreck. It turned out to be the Shipwreck Bar. This sleepy spot on the Caribbean side of the island had a small strip of beach but calm waters. It looked like a nice place to relax with a cold Carib beer, listening to a selection of reggae music or other island hits.

Next door to the Shipwreck was another beach shack with a great view of the Caribbean side. I am not sure if the place had a name. Unfortunately I could not stay, as I had to make the climb up and over Timothy Hill to get back.
