Holiday Shopping Deadlines for Books and Calendars

Is it just me, or has this year simply vanished into thin air? I cannot believe the holidays are already here again, but I guess there’s no arguing with the calendar.

Since the next few weeks will no doubt fly by as well, I thought I’d better give you a heads up.

If you’re interested in ordering my book Those Who Stayed, or the 2018 Green Turtle Cay Wall Calendar as Christmas gifts, please note that Monday, December 11 is the last day to order these items for guaranteed delivery in time for Christmas.

To place an online order for Those Who Stayed click HERE, and to order the 2018 Green Turtle Cay calendar online, click HERE.

To purchase Those Who Stayed in-store, click HERE for a list of shops in Abaco and Nassau that carry the book.

In the Bahamas, the 2018 GTC Calendars are available exclusively through Green Turtle Cay’s Treasure Chest Gift Shop.

Elsewhere in the Bahamas, contact Lisa Farrington at the Treasure Chest (242-577-2616) — I’m sure she’ll work with you to get a calendar to you.

Thanks everyone, and an early Merry Christmas to all!

Don’t Forget!

For those who have asked, a Celebration of Life Service for Eric Sawyer will be held at Green Turtle Cay’s New Plymouth Gospel Chapel this Saturday, November 18 at 2:00 p.m. The family asks that you wear something blue, since it was Eric’s favourite colour.

Can You Name These Green Turtle Kids?

Came across this photo while I was going through some archives last night. It was taken in Green Turtle Cay sometime around 1970 – give or take a few years. How many of these kids can you name?

In fact, why don’t we make it interesting? Continue reading
