We had a great tour of the Sugar Cane museum in Cardenas. Our guide gave us an overview of the process of harvesting and refining sugarcane from start to finish. At the height of its production, slaves did the back-breaking work. It was a labor-intensive process that left us with a deep appreciation and respect for those who toiled here. 💙🇨🇺💙 #cuba #sugar #sugarplantation #refinery #traveldesigner #travelbychrystal #cardenas

Excerpt from Philip Walwyn's book -More Rain More Rest: ⁣
"Estridge was a wooden house built about 150 years ago, set on the stone⁣
foundations of a somewhat larger house from the 18th century. The house lacked paint; the doors, the windows, the shutters all were rickety. The garden unkempt. A small stone building stood at the rear and it still does.  It felt a little eerie to be in this semi-derelict house where all others were afraid to live. One night, half in half out of my dreams, I heard the clanking of chains; my mind raced and daylight revealed a large land crab scrambling against the wooden walls.  One had to be on constant watch for cane fires, ready to call out the ⁣
gang and the fire cart. Many hours I spent in the rambling house and that was another time the great novel should have been written and was not. " This painting "Estridge" is one of 50 in the book by the artist Kate Spencer Walwyn.

They say home is where the heart is 
But my heart is wild and free 
So am I homeless or just heartless?
Did I start this or did it start me? 
Passenger-home. 🎶

Excerpt from the Book…. Cavelle was a great example of the better educated, brighter, more ambitious person who somehow saw wider horizons open up before them and managed to drag themselves up by their bootstraps. This was not easy at a time when poverty in the rural villages was still endemic.  There were barely any opportunities in those villages far out⁣
in the country forty, fifty years ago whilst, concurrently, a greater realisation had dawned for a larger number of people that the possibility of a lifetime better spent than working in the cane fields was out there somewhere. Somewhere such as England at that time; earlier it might have been Ontario for apple picking or, between the wars, ⁣
Curacao in the oil fields, or always the Virgin Islands.⁣ Cavelle came to cook and was directed by my hard-working mother in our newly opened inn. She was of that tall, slim breed and had a wonderful way of standing on one leg with the foot of the other placed upon the lower calf of the standing leg. Her silhouette was made sharper if she felt a little embarrassed in front of the guests when announcing that dinner would be served in five minutes or that dinner was ready. The ⁣
stance when at its most extreme was like that of the Maasai warrior, although she had no spear. “Soup is on the table.” In a sing-song voice. Stork-like poise and attendant pirouette most graceful as she turned to go back to the kitchen with a large smile.

We visited the Cruzan distillery where a little bit of rum is made. We went to see a man who carved mahogany wood into beautiful pieces, and I ended up spending time meeting Wanda their dog. And then today we spent some time in that last photo...that one speaks for itself. This is a nice place.

One of 50 paintings from More Rain More Rest titled “Sugar 6”

artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:
That late afternoon light around 5:30 as it hit the golden cut cane was magic. I used to sketch a lot in those days as there was so much to paint. The fields around the house were alive with activity, donkeys, tractors and carts. I think the donkeys name is Timothy and the woman looks like Ermine who would be walking back down to the village after the lunch shift at Rawlins Plantation Inn.
This is a small oil sketch looking over to St Eustatius, otherwise known as Statia, a Dutch island with a long strange history. The cane was so tall, you could not see over the top, so when a field was cut suddenly a spectacular vista lay open.  The mill and chimney below is Belmont Estate, now sadly a ruin. #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

Painting from the book “St. Pauls Butterfly”
artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:
I kept loose paper in my hymn book for sketching. St. Paul's church at Easter time was full of very smart women and they kept their children 'in check' and beautifully dressed. This little girl was mesmerized by the yellow butterflies and every now and again outstretched her arm to try and catch one. I remember my mother had died the month before and the numbers on the Hymn Board were my mother's favorite hymns...'All Things Bright and Beautiful', 'There is a Green Hill far far away, without a city wall'. It was a difficult composition and needed to be distorted quite a lot.  I should have done many more church paintings.  I got half way through one of two girls singing and tapping tambourines at the same time. It was a wonderful sight... #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

Painting from the book “Sugar Factory”
artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:
Oh the noise was colossal, every piece of machinery cranking away and the staircases rickety and old.  The wonderful fresh sweet smell of cane filled your nostrils as did the dust, the heat, the debris of cane mulch. It was difficult finding a patch to sketch.  I went back day after day, much to the annoyance of the man at the entrance, he said it was far too dangerous for me!  But I loved the old splendid wheels and machinery and the best bit was when the oven door opened and the man arrived wearing big gloved hands and carrying a long devil like fork to stoke up the fire and load it up. Wonderful. #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

Painting from the book “Cranstons”
artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:
It was one of the few estates close to the sea and as you approached you saw the silhouette of the sugar mill and chimney. The land was flat and very fertile and it was close to Brimstone Hill.  We often used to go for a swim off the black sandy beach and then drive back up this driveway, over the road and up more cane tracks back to Mounty P. #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

The Tempest 2017 by Kate Spencer - This painting is the back cover of More Rain More Rest.  Kate's story about the painting:During the hurricane I stayed with friends in Frigate Bay on the other side of St. Kitts.  I wondered whether my beloved Mounty P had survived the storm.  We thought things must be worse on the Northern end.  So the next day I drove as close as I could and walked the rest of the way.  When I came over the hill and saw the house still standing I was overcome with joy and shouted.  When I got close I found bird nests knocked down in the storm, their house ruined but my house intact. I put them in the painting.  We were very lucky.  Lots of others were 
not.  #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

Painting from the book “Fahies”
artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:
This was one of my first landscapes I ever painted in St. Kitts. Fahies was an old sugar estate just below Kittitian Hill but part of the flat lands were used for 'Provision grounds' and grew everything. Yams, Pinder, sweet potato, Dasheen, pumpkin, pineapple. That is Mount Misery or Mount Liamuiga in the background and what a fine range of mountain it is too. Every estate had a water source piped down from the mountain. #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

Visite de la plantation Oak Alley. Magnifique endroit. Malheureusement, la pauvreté autour est incroyable, dure à imaginer. Des champs de cannes à sucre partout, pendant des miles... mais cette richesse ne profite toujours pas aux bonnes personnes.

What is the connection between the Gibson House and the institution of slavery? .
.
Catherine Gibson’s husband died many years before her house was built but he DID help to finance it. John Gibson was a sugar trade merchant out of Cuba. Though slavery was outlawed in Boston by 1783, the Gibsons (like many northern elites) continued to profit from the institution of slavery. Such funds went into building houses, educating children, paying servant wages, and other costs associated with life as an upper class Bostonian. .

What is the connection between the Gibson House and the institution of slavery? . . Catherine Gibson’s husband died many years before her house was built but he DID help to finance it. John Gibson was a sugar trade merchant out of Cuba. Though slavery was outlawed in Boston by 1783, the Gibsons (like many northern elites) continued to profit from the institution of slavery. Such funds went into building houses, educating children, paying servant wages, and other costs associated with life as an upper class Bostonian. . . . . . . #19thCentury  #18thCentury  #SugarTrade  #HistoricCuba  #SugarPlantation  #HistoricBoston  #UpperClass  #Money  #1783  #BostonHistory  #MA  #MassachusettsHistory  #DeclarationOfRights  #Merchant  #Bostonian 
All that Spanish moss in the trees makes everything look extra eerie on the Destrehan plantation. It was quite hard to listen to tour guides talk about the beautiful house and sugar plantation, without properly acknowledging how slavery played a role in it and how much people suffered for the wealth of others. Didn't feel like a proper representation of the past.

Cummings, an attorney and real estate investor, opened 'The Whitney Plantation' more than two years ago as a #slavery #museum, bucking a tradition of #plantation tours that romanticize antebellum life and gloss over the #slave trade.
⛓️
Purchased as a real estate investment more than 15 years ago, #Whitney became something else for Cummings, as he examined volumes of documents related to the old #sugar plantation and similar surrounding operations along the #Mississippi River. Inventories of humans beings valued like livestock or equipment and records of women touted as breeding stock were eye-openers, even for a wealthy, college-educated man from the #South.

For years I have been trying to perfect a way of transferring a picture to stone.  I'm almost there but I'm still a few years away in acquiring the technology needed.  I won't have to scratch anymore. .
 One fascinating thing about the knowledge I have acquired  is knowing that if this transfer idea works it's going to be a game changer for the Memorial and tourist industry in the Caribbean.

Just an hour south of downtown Houston is a plantation house that has been the headquarters for a rum distillery, a sugar cane empire, an oilfield and a priceless collection of period antiques curated by one woman. In this weeks blog, I visit the Varner-Hogg plantation, where wealth, pain, scandal and grandeur have all played a role. Link to blog in bio.
Have you visited any of Texas’ remaining plantation homes?

A walk through history.. Oak Alley Plantation #sugarplantation #trees #greenery #plantation #history #visit #tourist
I took this pic back in June when we visited the stunning @stnicholasabbey plantation in Barbados for a travel piece I’m writing. Love the wood panelling, chandelier, plates on the walls, table laden with exquisite glassware...above all I love the colour of the walls - but literally can’t think of a name for it. Red♥️? Pink💗? Terracotta🧡? What do you think? 🤷🏻‍♀️ *

Dreamy Escapes went on a #plantationtour of @lauraplantation. Our tour guide, Kyle, was super awesome and very informative. Highly recommend going on this tour if you are in #BatonRouge or #Neworleans. #travelislife #nola300 #sugarisking #queensugar #louisianaactivities #frenchcreole #louisianahistory #sugarplantation #mississippiriver #riverroadplantations #instatravel #travelnoire2018 #dreamyescapes
Tubing down what use to be a massive Sugar Plantation here on Kauai.  These canals were a water supply for that area.  There are amazing tunnels and some of the most lush vegetation you’ve ever seen! #kauaibackcountryadventures #tubing #sugarplantation #kauai #kauaihawaii #hangloose #canal #island #excursion #tropical #igers #igbeautiful #instacool #me #pic #picture #picoftheday #pictureoftheday #photo #photooftheday

@stnicholasabbey beautiful old plantation house. Fully recommend a visit 😍
@stnicholasabbey beautiful old plantation house. Fully recommend a visit 😍
This massive chimney is from the mid-nineteenth-century Craig Sugar Mill on Braden Creek in Manatee County, Florida.  Built by enslaved laborers, furnaces at the base of the chimney were used to cook down the syrup squeezed from the sugar cane grown on the plantation.  Abandoned after the Civil War, the massive 45-foot-tall stone chimney was incorporated into a frame farmhouse in the early 1900s.  The property is currently owned by a church, and is a notable landmark on US Highway 301. #craigsugarmillchimney #sugarmill #sugarcane #slavelabor #slavery #sugarplantation #craigplantation #bradencreek #ellentonflorida #manateecountyfl #chimney #stonechimney #framevernacular #floridahistory #historicmarker
