Time is a human construct.


Everything in our lives revolves around this concept of time. It is both a bad and good thing, as we stress to make deadlines, as well as celebrate meaningful moments, all based upon this made up notion.


In a few days, one year will end and another will begin. Resolutions will be made as we ring in the New Year with celebrations all around the world.


One such annual celebration, right here in Abaco, is the New Years Day Junkanoo Parade in Green Turtle Cay. Junkanoo is a long standing Bahamian tradition where costumed dancers parade through the streets to the beat of the goatskin drums, trumpets, whistles and cowbells.


If you happen to find yourself on the cay this New Years Day, take a few moments to explore the island. Visit the local restaurants for some amazing local cuisine, take a walk on the famous Gillam Bay Beach or stroll through the historical Loyalist Memorial Sculpture Garden. While youíre there, why not take a moment to have a look at a few of our listings? Tres Palmas is one listing that I canít help but mention. Itís perfect for a family looking to settle down somewhere quiet, or as a vacation home for a large group. There is so much to love about Green Turtle Cay.


However you choose to bring in the New Year, we here at Coldwell Banker Lightbourn Realty would like to wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
