    Glad to see people on that property. My cousin “Jump Seat Paul” used to own and run that whole area. Cows, ducks, chickens crops. And those days of walking in two feet of water for hundreds of yards collecting ‘conchs’……..ah the good ole days……………….

    Today, can’t even afford a taxi or green fees…………………………

      Hey Terry,
      Did the UBP confiscate the property from “Jump Seat Paul” to build the Port Royal Golf Course? If not, how much did the family sell the property? Who made money, the owners or politicians/realters of the day? You have a lot to say, keep us informed. Oh I wish for the good ole days. Ha ha ha. don’t talk in riddles.
