Saturday, November 24th: Festival of Lights – Light Up the Settlement (Basketball Court)
When we adopted Wrigley from the Pasadena Humane Society in April 2010, we knew he was young. But because he’d been a stray, they couldn’t tell us exactly how old he was.
After examining Wrigley, our vet estimated he was about five months old. Counting back, we realized he’d have been born around Thanksgiving Day 2009.

For such a small island, Green Turtle Cay offers a remarkable array of shopping options.
In a small settlement like New Plymouth, where people worked and lived so closely together, maintaining good relationships with friends and neighbours was important.
Oftentimes, small groups of local fishermen went “hauling” – using large nets to capture schools of fish. At the end of the day, they would divide up their catch. To ensure each man received his fair share, they drew lots.
If you’re going to be on Green Turtle Cay this Thursday, Harvey’s is offering a special Thanksgiving menu. Looks delicious!
Got an island or beach lover on your holiday shopping list? Here are some great gift ideas. And the best part? They’re all under $30!
Thanksgiving is my favourite American holiday. A low-key day to spend with family and friends, enjoying good food and company while kicking off the Christmas season? What’s not to love?
Looking for a fun and unusual way to celebrate a special occasion or just enjoy a day at the beach? Green Turtle Cay entrepreneur, Ash Gardiner, has launched a new business, Abaco Mermaids, which combines her love of whimsy with her amazing photographic skill.
Anyone else really, really wishing they were on Gillam Bay today?
The ancient Egyptians believed that we die twice — once when our soul leaves our body, and again after the death of the last person to speak our name. They believed that to speak the name of the dead was to make them live again.
I’ve received many kind notes and comments this past week about my Remembrance Day post and I wanted to share a bit more of what I’ve uncovered about Lewis Lowe and his lineage. Speaking his name won’t bring Lewis back, but it can ensure he gets the recognition and respect he deserves for the sacrifices he made.
Lewis Pearson Lowe was born in New Plymouth, Green Turtle Cay on August 28, 1888.
