We had fun today. Carter rented us a golf cart! We took a ride into New Plymouth on Green Turtle Cay. New Plymouth is the only town on Green Turtle Cay and is at the opposite end of the cay. We did a little site seeing as we drove end. Susan and I remembered some of the places for our 2012 trip. We parked to visit one of the most famous bars, Miss Emily’s Blue Bee Bar. Miss Emily invented the famous tropical drink, the Goombay Smash that has been often copied, but not quite the same as the original invented by Miss Emily who passed away in 1977. The place is now run by her daughter, Violet who was just as friendly as someone you had known your entire life.

When we entered the bar it was noisy with spring breakers that had been here a while. One of the college girls was having fun with a little Bahamian girl that had a very small soccer ball. The two of them went outside and so did we after being served our Goombay Smashes. The college girl started showing the tiny girl some soccer moves with her feet. Then some of the college guys got into the spirit and more local kids started showing up. The next thing you know we have a girls vs guys soccer game going on. It was so much fun seeing more local kids join in. The spring breakers were sooo nice to the little kids. There was a lot of love and kindness shown to those little children by our college kids. Lots of hugs and picking up the small ones to that were just too small to play. They were having strategy huddles. Oh yea, no supervising parents like in the USA. I’m sure the little local kids are still talking about the fun they had with the big kids from the USA. I was very proud to see our kids behaving like that. It was not the usual stereotypical portrayal of spring breakers throwing up drunk and being generally disorderly. These guys and gals I am proud of.

During a lull in action we backed on out of the side street and toured a little more of New Plymouth until we got to another famous bar called Sundowners. It was almost sundown and this is the place to watch the sun set.
WRONG.
It was too cloudy at 6:15 as the sun set. But we had fun looking out over the Sea of Abaco. We took a few pictures and then went back to Miss Emily’s Blue Bee Bar for grouper dinner. The vibe had changed. The kids were all gone. The soccer game was over and it was much quieter.
Susan, Carter and I all had delicious grilled grouper dinners. We also had conch & lobster bites for appetizers. We enjoyed everything but had three boxes of too much food to take back to the boat.

It was fun driving back to our marina in the dark the two miles or so. Yes, I had alcohol and drove. That is legal in the Bahamas. Drunk driving is against the law. I was not drunk. Sensibility rules in the Bahamas.
