“The Bachelor” in St. Croix US Virgin Islands
The US Virgin Islands is made up of four main islands St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John and Water Island. We were very happy to see “The Bachelor ” on ABC @BachelorABC which was filmed in St. Croix US Virgin Islands in October shown on TV last night, February 11, 2013. Sean Lowe @SeanLowe09 and the young ladies vying for his love and attention had a wonderful time exploring St. Croix. They traveled to St. Croix on Seaborne Airlines and flew in to Christiansted harbor and landed on the water. We don’t know if they were flying in from St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.
Sean as bachelor was a perfect gentle man. . They stayed at the historical and beautiful Buccaneer Hotel on the east end of the island and traveled west to the famous Villa Morales Restaurant, a wonderful place for local Spanish and Caribbean food. They also visited Point Udall monument the most eastern part of the United States on St. Croix. One area that they visited that is very romantic and serene was Mount Washington in Frederiksted. The Mini Festival they had in Christiansted was a replica of our Festival. Look through our Crucian Christmas Festival photographs on this page to see the true essence of our Festival which celebrated 60 years. In addition, it was nice that his sister, Shay also visited Sean during his stay on St. Croix. If you missed or want to see it again watch The Bachelor on line, filmed in St. Croix Here
By the way, we hope that The Bachelor, Sean Lowe returns to St. Croix to get married and stay for his honeymoon so that they can enjoy more of the Crucian Culture. Time will tell.
