Coach Comeback

True that some of the most amazing experiences in this world are free. At the historic “Monk’s Bath’s”. WAY back in the 1600s, the Knights of Malta , a group of French monks who were commissioned by the King of France, lived on St. Croix and they had two “outposts”. One in Judith’s Fancy; and one in Frederiksted. These monks, being cleanlier than regular people decided that rather than bathing with fresh water – which was hard to get here – they would carve out some “Roman” types baths in the hard coral outcroppings along the beach in front of their monastery. So with much hard work, they carved two rectangular baths into the hardened coral outcroppings, carved stone steps into the sides of the baths. And they are still there today. Amazing
