News, Articles and Poetry:
Work on our major highway, Queens Highway continues today. The company, Symonettes enterprises have reached as far as Tarpum Bay. They are expected to have completed Tarpum Bay and Rock Sound roads by the end of the week.

The company is leaving behind them a beautifully paved wider highway than the previous. The new road will serve to cause more pleasant driving on the island while reducing the amount of potential traffic accidents due to road congestion. Almost four extra feet of new roadway is added to the side of the main highway on Eleuthera.

Its great. It makes for better scenery while being new especially and in addition to the new highway a beautification process was undertaken in Rock Sound. What they did was clear a section of bushy area allowing a beautiful view of the Caribbean sea and Eleuthera Sound while driving south of Rock Sound. This new area is impressive. A complete view of the harbour mouth of Rock Sound harbour is seen as one makes his way from Rock Sound to Green Castle. The effect is a wonderful new addition to the scenic driving in Eleuthera. The island will benefit from this type of design. It has the overall effect of enhancing the island roadways adding additional unexpected beautiful vistas where there were none previously.

Enjoy your scenic driving along the island of Eleuthera today.

Fishing Report:
Fishing has resumed in Tarpum Bay. Most of the fishing however is limited still to the Atlantic ocean side of the island; the eastern side of the island. Lots of lobster and grouper is still being harvested at this time. Although there is not an abundance of tourist to purchase the products at this time locals are selling the harvest to resellers and whole salers of the fish commodities.

So you can get your fresh fish supplies once again from the docks in Tarpum Bay and other villages on the island.
