Romney Manor is a must see...built on an old sugar plantation, it is home to a botanical garden and Batik factory. Local native craft using dies, wax and fabric. Very cool.

This was a very interesting stop on our tour. The grounds are beautiful. The history of the plantation is very interesting and informative. It was amazing to see the ladies making the batik cloth.

We visited as part of the grand tour with Grey's. Mr. Grey told us the names of all the plants. The views were spectacular. There was this giant, gorgeous tree that I loved.
