A Story about Rock Sound

SearchHere’s a good story about Rock Sound, told to me by woman who has cruised there.  A single-hander went to the bank, withdrew 500 dollars, which she put  in her backpack.  Then she went for a hike with a friend, leaving her pack by the path.  When the returned, the money was gone.  They went to the police station to report.  The police chief directly drove out into the community and interviewed some kids who had been hanging around the scene of the crime.  They described the other kids they had seen there.  Within half an hour, the police chief knew the names of the culprits  She demanded that they produce themselves, their parents, and the 500 dollars in her office, in ten minutes.  The woman who lost the money did not believe that they would show up.  But the kids showed up, heads down, with their parents, and 450 dollars.  One of the kids was a cousin from Nassau.  The police chief told him he was banned from the island, and got the parents to agree.  Then the kids started to file out the door, heads down.  “O, I’m not finished with you yet,” she called out.  Then she handed them pails and mops and put the kids to work, swabbing the halls, cells, and bathrooms at the jail.  Then she made them wash her car.  That’s the way Rock Sound rolls.Share this:Like this:LikeLoading…RelatedBahamas, Bahamian people, Eleuthera, Uncategorized← Little HarborFollow sophiasailing on WordPress.comLike us on FacebookCategoriesSelect CategoryAbacoAbandoned dogsalgae bloomAnchorsBahamasBahamian ArtBahamian DrinksBahamian FoodBahamian peopleBaker’s Bay ControversyBasket WeavingbeachBig Hill Boxcart Derby, Hopetown, AbacoBlack BahamiansBoat hooksBoat repairBoat tackleBottom paintBruce RobertsCarnivalChristianityChristmasclammingCoralcoral reefsCreditcruisingCultureDerechoDinghyDivingdown belowEleutheraEnvironmentExumasfishingFugitiveFugitive Slave LawGalegalleyGenderGender roles on a boatGood PeopleGrammarGround tackleGuana CayGuiltHerman MelvilleHeteronormativityhigh seasHomelessnessHomoeroticHomosexualityHopetownHypocrisyIdolatryIshmaelJonahJunkanoolee-clothsLGBTLiminallive abord sailboadslive on a sailboatliving aboard a boatliving off the gridLynnyard CayMan-O-WarMangrovesMegayachtsMoby DickmonsoonMoonNarcisissmNorwegian Pirate QueensnudityocracokeOne chapter a dayPaddle BoardsPaganismPamlico SoundPassages across the oceanPersecutionpoisonwood treePropellersprovisioningQueequegRaceRacismReading Moby DickReligionretirementRitualRock SoundsabreSabre 36SailboatssailingSexSexualitySlaverySnorkelingSnubberSolving problems at seaSpanish WellsSquallsSSB RadiosstorageStormssunshadesThe BibleTravelingUncategorizedUsurywater makerswaterproof canvasWeatherWhite BahamiansWhite PeopleWomenYogaFollowFollow “sophiasailing”Build a website with WordPress.com%d bloggers like this:
