Index for Album Salt-Cay-2007: Salt Cay 2007
Salt Cay, Turks & Caicos pictures taken May 5-7, 2007. Includes eight panoramas. The island is so compact that pictures will jump around in location. For some I waited until the sun was a certain way before getting them.
The Town Salinas, as I’m coming in for a landing. The road across the back of the salinas is Airport Road.
The cutest airport terminal I’ve seen.
Netty’s Variety Store. Nettie managed the house I stayed at.

off to the right.
A spider that belongs to genus ’Argiope’, family Araneidae (orb weavers). Species unknown. [??]
A panorama from the ridge inland from Little Bluff Lookout looking at town with the [name?] pond in front. Behind is an overly tall house built by an owner that used trickery to get it approved.
The Ft. Pleasant late 18th c. canon at Little Bluff Lookout.
Looking south down the coast from Little Bluff Lookout.
Looking north up the coast from Little Bluff Lookout.
St. John’s Anglican Church from the road. [does church have web site?]
St. John’s Anglican Church from inside the fence.
The town beach taken from Dunscombe Point.
Some crustaceans [type?]. Locals call them "suck rock." At Dunscombe Point.

The White House. A Bermudan salt trader home from the early 1800’s. The roof is Bermuda limestone. It is still maintained by descendants of the family.
The Brown House. Built by shipwright-turned-salt baron, Alexander Harriott, in 1832, it is another of the historic salt plantation homes on Salt Cay. It is now being restored and will be rentable as a grand villa. [URL needed when rentable]
The salt warehouse ruins just north of The White House. Picture was taken from The White House deck.
A panorama from the South Creek Bird Sanctuary viewing platform. I saw no birds here.
I found in the road below the bird sanctuary.
The back of The White House showing its Bermuda kitchen.
The Salt Cay Methodist Church, a classic example of British colonial architecture.
The North Beach. I was standing just east of the Windmills Plantation.
The Grey Salina coming into view.
A panorama of Grey Salina.
The Old Govenment House. This was once the home of the customs officers and government officials. Its gabled tin roof, motley stone, brick and slate walkways, and large stone Bahamian-style kitchen are signatures of the island’s architectural heritage. The problem with getting someone to restore it is it is way inland and not on the water.
A sunset. I didn’t see any great ones.
A government cistern.
An old salt shed now used as a government storage shed. At the southeast corner of Victoria Street and Airport Road.
The airport terminal again.
