Churches—there are lots of churches, even though the population of New Plymouth is small. Churches seem to be the hub of the community. We stopped at a church bake sale a few days ago. The bake sale consisted of a card table with a few pieces of guava cream cheese bars and oreo cheesecake. But, and this was a big but….they were also selling “Gullywash.” Gullywash is a drink made from coconut juice, milk and gin. It was served by the good ladies of the congregation and assisted by their primary school-aged helpers. We walked away with two gullywashes and a piece of guava cream cheese bar. Gullywash, at 11:00 in the morning, while walking around the town. How un-Minnesota Lutheran.
Rules of commerce that I am accustomed to have been smudged a bit so that what I was expecting to happen, may not be what happens. For example, we acquired a loaf of coconut bread only once, and that was through another cruiser who heard we were looking for it. We made french toast and ate it with our Minnesota maple syrup. I drool when I recall the taste. Our problem has been that it seems no matter what time of day we look for the coconut bread, it has been sold out. The Bahamians all say the same thing, “It go really fast.” Sometimes we see loaves tucked up high on a shelf that are marked “SOLD.” If a place tells you they make it on Tuesdays, they may have it bought and paid for before it’s even out of the oven.
