Adventures on Nevis: the Flower Truck

Photograph Flower Truck with a  View (Nevis) by Nancy Lundebjerg on 500px

Nevis has a fair number of abandoned things -- sugar mills, houses, cars, boats and this overgrown truck that I spotted on the side of the main road.  Julia was a good sport and so we went back to investigate.  To get this shot, we did our best teenage boy imitation and crawled through a barbed wire fence.

The keys were still in the ignition as if the driver had just left to get a cup of coffee.  Fortunately, there was no skeleton inside the flower truck -- just lizards and likely a bug or two.  There's a grim beauty to how nature takes something over -- maybe in ten years the paved area will be gone as grass grows up through the concrete and trees take root.
