Black And White’s Not Just For Penguins Anymore…

Yes, I know. I’ve posted a lot of photos of the Captain’s Quarters ruins, but dang, it sure is beautiful. I took an infrared on CQ here, and dialed back the high white intensity to get the reflective photo you see here. Those mailboxes on the right are fascinating, as they have the old names from before Hurricane Georges still labeled: Sea Saba, Franklin’s, Juliana’s, et Al.

  1. Fascinating photos especially when juxtaposed to the proud, pristine buildings and overall fantastic beauty that is truly Saba. These photos remind me of how blessed I am to have so many fond memories of when this property was a proud, pristine landmark on the island–a vibrant tourist hotel and popular local gathering spot. It is sad to see it in such a state of on-going decay and neglect.

    1. As I understand it, the property is purchased and has a plan to restore its former footprint without disturbing what made it great, but the permits are tangled up in government approvals, etc.

  2. Chaz, That pool building is the first house I really wanted to buy on Saba about 10 years ago, of course they would only sell the whole Captin’s quarters, oh well. I do have some beautiful huge flower pictures from the base of the hotel. They had some beautiful plants and flower there!!!
