Of the many things for which I am grateful this year, Team M/V Adventure is high on the list. Thanks to them, to the Green Turtle Club and to everyone who’s helping to give Green Turtle Cay a Thanksgiving dinner later this week.
The following information comes directly from Green Turtle Cay as of this morning, Sunday, September 8th:
“Everyone on Green Turtle Cay is working around the clock, keeping spirits high, and staying very organized against all odds. They have jumped into immediate action hosting town meetings, distributing relief items, and clearing debris.
The roads are fully cleared already with use of some functioning carts/cars.
Yikes! I just realized that yesterday made one month until Christmas. Please note that Monday, December 10th is the deadline to order Those Who Stayed or the 2019 Green Turtle Cay calendar with guaranteed delivery before the holidays.
(Note: for orders destined for Canada, I’d suggest ordering as soon as possible, given the current issues with Canada Post.)
Want your copy of Those Who Stayed inscribed? Just send me a note and let me know to whom you’d like it inscribed and any special message.

For such a small island, Green Turtle Cay offers a remarkable array of shopping options.
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?
Green Turtle Club – Green Turtle Cay, Abaco, Bahamas.
I know. Thanksgiving is not a traditional Bahamian celebration. But in recent years, due to simple proximity as well as the influence of American visitors, many Bahamians have adopted the holiday. (An opportunity to stop and give thanks, plus a turkey dinner? Who wouldn’t want to partake?!)
If you’re on Green Turtle Cay today, you’ve got several Thanksgiving dining options…
In New Plymouth, Harvey’s Island Grill will be serving a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner, complete with homemade pumpkin pie. Reservations aren’t required, but they are recommended. Call Harvey’s at 365-4389 or on VHF Channel 16.
At Leeward Yacht Club, the Lizard Bar & Grill is serving a smoked turkey meal with gravy, stuffing, green beans, Bahamian macaroni and cheese and of course, pumpkin or pecan pie.
Ballyhoo restaurant at the Bluff House Beach Resort, is not only serving a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner, but they’re giving you the chance to burn off that extra piece of pie dancing to the New Entry Band, who’ll play from 8:30-11:30pm.
I’m beyond excited to report that our January 7th anniversary celebration/fundraiser for the Albert Lowe Museum, An Evening to Remember, raised just over $10,000!
