One of the highlights of Green Turtle Cay’s holiday season is the Festival of Lights – when the settlement of New Plymouth is awash in Christmas colours.

This year’s festival kicks off tonight, with a Community Family Fun Night at Heritage Park (Settlement Point) during which the town will be officially lit up for the holidays. Dinner, drinks and sweets will be available for purchase, and there’ll be games and activities for kids of all ages. Plus, you’ll enjoy the terrific classic jazz of Sax Man, Rashad Reckley.

Green Turtle Cay in Days Gone By

So I’m finally getting around to unpacking the last of the boxes from our move from Washington, D.C. back to Los Angeles last December. In one of them, I found the photographs below, taken in Green Turtle Cay during the summer of 1984.

The first image is of the top of the public (cannon) dock in town. The white house with pink trim is Carolyn Cash’s house, prior to the addition of its covered front porch.
