THE PASSING OF THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH

The last time Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, visited Nassau, Bahamas (March, 1994), my husband Erskine's secretary Marcia and I went out on a highway, where we knew the royal couple would be driving back to the airport.

We stood on a grass verge with no one else around as they drove past. I had made a little British Union Jack on a stick and Marcia had a little Bahamian flag. We stood there waving furiously at them as they passed us by. The Queen waved back.

I often wondered if they ever remembered those two lone figures waving little flags at them on an isolated Bahamian highway!

BAHAMAS SEA PLANE MEMORIES!

 

Part of the fabulous mural by Allan Pachino Wallace at The Point's
Margaritaville Beach Resort, Nassau, Bahamas. The entire mural
can be viewed at the edge of Junkanoo Beach.

The sea plane depicted on this brilliant mural by Allan Pachino Wallace at The Pointe's Margaritaville Beach Resort near the British Colonial Hilton Hotel, Nassau, Bahamas, reminds me of my days as PA to Eric Crouch on Bay Street, downtown Nassau, in the seventies. Mr. Crouch used to send me with Lee Stocking Island's weekly payroll to the British Colonial beach to meet the seaplane from his client's island which is situated in the Exumas. The owner of Lee Stocking Island at the time was John Perry, who founded a marine science institute there.

I would roll up my capris and with shoes and payroll in hand wade out to the waiting sea plane. I would hand over the precious package and then make my way back to the shore, watching the sea plane roar away and take off into the sparkling blue.
