A million thanks to Bruce Pinder of Da Salty Pig Adventures in Spanish Wells for allowing me to share these photos of GTC’s New Plymouth settlement with you.
As you can see, the devastation is widespread, and the residents of Green Turtle Cay (as well as the Abaco mainland, other Abaco cays and Grand Bahama) will need all the support they can get in the weeks, months and years ahead. Please help if you can. Here’s how.
Building at left (above) is the Albert Lowe Museum. We are very concerned about the broken upstairs window visible at the top left of this photo. Beneath that window is the museum’s photograph room, which holds many historic, irreplaceable images. I know that feeding and housing people has to come first, but if anyone could kindly board up that window, all of those involved with the museum would be incredibly grateful.
Thank you again to Bruce Pinder for permitting me to use these images. I’m getting a lot of requests for photos taken beyond the New Plymouth Settlement (e.g., at Gilliam Bay, in Bethel Estates and the north end of the cay.) Many of our residents and second homeowners who weren’t on the cay during the storm are desperate to see images of how their homes have fared.

Thank you for sharing this heartbreaking pictures, those of us who had visited there many times are crushed, and doing what we can to assist the wonderful people who are affected.
Amanda, what about Fish Hooks?
I’m so saddened to see all the destruction. We were planning our first visit to Green Turtle Cay next January. Do you have any information about Bluff House. I am sending money for the victims.
Many thanks for sending along all the photos of our beloved Green Turtle Cay.
Please give Mandy, Dale, Ronnie Sawyer, his daughter and family a big hello for me and also let them know my email and phone if I can help them….239-470-1706….email@example.com
Thanks so much for sharing these photos and thanks so much to Bruce Pinder! I will forward to many family members, if that’s okay, who are spread far and wide who keep asking for updates on certain landmarks etc. Really appreciate it! Much love to Green Turtle cay.

Can someone take close up photos of Abaco yacht services seen one drone video however it only shows
the front by the road and not the boats at the other end of the rows. Thankyou
How did Fish Hooks fare, Amanda? Regards, Steve Albury
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.
Can you tell me how Lincoln Jones’ house faired?
Thank you for posting these photos. Here in the states it’s been hard to find any of Green Turtle Cay.
My heart aches but I’m grateful that every one is safe.
Thank you again.

Please help me know if Pastor Johnny Lowe is ok. How can I get in touch with him?
I’m keen to find out if Wally Davis is OK please. He used to run the New Plymouth Inn where I’ve spent several holidays. Thank you.
It is painful to see the terrible damage on Green Turtle Cay – As a lifelong Historic Preservation professional, please let me urge restraint in demolishing structures that hold the culture and history of New Plymouth in their old bones. This is not yet the time, I know, but save what can possibly be saved and restored to keep the GTC heritage and cultural roots intact. Please contact me when y’all are ready and I will volunteer my personal skills and additional financial assistance by doing inspections and helping to triage damaged structures and propose proper repairs. – Todd Dickinson
Thank you so much. We’ve been so worried. What about Miss Emily’s?
