CROOKED ISLAND, BAHAMAS – A fascinating conversation with our guide, Marcia Gibson of Gibson Executive Tours.

Our journey across Crooked Island continued with the funny story of how her kids learned to drive stick shift, just one of the many light-hearted moments of our trip. Her warmth is a true representation of the people of Crooked Island.

As we leave Colonel Hill, we venture into Cabbage Hill, where residents proudly showed us what they say is the island’s oldest bar.

Reuben Ferguson inherited the bar from his father, which opened circa 1950. For decades, it’s been a haven for locals to unwind after a hard day’s work, symbolizing community spirit.

Despite the challenges of doing business, Reuben and Samantha Ferguson remain dedicated to sustaining Crooked Island, recently opening Cabbage Hill Mart.

Much like Chief Councillor David Ferguson, Reuben and Samantha encourage Crooked Islanders to return home and build their community.

Our travels across Crooked Island continue this week, spotlighting several lodges, one of the last standing lighthouses, and the country’s oldest post office!
