THOSE WHO STAYED 

A full-colour, hard-cover, 185-page coffee table book featuring 200+ historic photographs and two dozen original oil paintings by Bahamian artist Alton Lowe.

Visitors often describe New Plymouth on Green Turtle Cay as a charming fishing village, its narrow streets, clapboard homes and colourful flowers reminiscent of a New England town. But beneath this sweet façade is a past of piracy, poverty and privilege.

Hints of New Plymouth’s history are all around. A rusted anchor at Settlement Point. Two cannon standing guard on the public dock. Broken tombstones on the beach.  An old jail with stairs that lead nowhere.

For more than a thousand years, settlers have come here, drawn by the safety of the land and the bounty of the sea. And as the waves contour the shore, so have these migrants shaped this tiny cay.

By fate and occasionally by force, most were carried away.  A resilient few remained. This is their story.

Cost: $79.

Welcome to the New, Improved Little House by the Ferry

You know the saying, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans?” Well, without warning, a whole pile of unplanned life landed in my lap over the past month.

October ended on a high note – I attended the Writer’s Digest Novel Writing Conference, where I not only made some fantastic new writer friends (hello, Underdogs!) but I found the inspiration to finish a novel I’ve been working on for more than a decade and to tackle National Blog Post Month (NaBloPoMo.)

Introducing the New and Improved Little House by the Ferry

My writing conference pals, left to right: Lauriane, Kara, Roslynn, Janet, Amy and me.

Late one night halfway through the conference, however, I was updating something here on the blog. I hit a wrong button and accidentally switched my WordPress theme – that’s basically the layout of the blog. Of course, the new layout was nothing like the old one, meaning that if you clicked onto the blog, all you’d see was a messy jumble of text and photos.

No Name Cay Pigs in the Tampa Bay Times

Look who was featured in the Tampa Bay Times this past Sunday… the piggies from No Name Cay!

Abaco's No Name Cay Pigs Featured in Tampa Bay Times

Thanks to Cindy Crowson for finding and sharing this.

And speaking of the No Name Cay pigs, Pig Whisperer, Craig Russell has launched a Go Fund Me page to raise money to help with maintenance and veterinary care. As many of you know, Craig cares for the pigs on a volunteer basis and far too often out of his own pocket.
