Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

I was born and raised in South Palmetto Point and my fondest memories of life are connected with this town and Island. For educational and economic opportunities, I moved away and lived and worked on other islands of The Bahamas, but always looked forward to the day I could return and contribute to building my hometown in an organic way. I did just that in 2012.

This house, completed in 2013, is dedicated posthumously to my dad Charles Clarke, whom I have personally knighted as 'Sir Charles,' not because he achieved some notoriety by the world's standards, but simply because he accomplished the greatest thing in the world to me; he was a great dad and father. He had little, but he worked hard in many capacities to provide for his family.

Through his example as a quiet unassuming man, he taught us the value of hard work, honesty, integrity and love for God and our fellowmen. Daddy served in the tourism industry up and down the island of Eleuthera for many decades as a taxi driver, clearly loving what he did; this was evidenced in the respect he afforded others. As a daddy's girl, I could always be found foot to foot behind him whether in the boat fishing, on the farm, or going along for the ride as he taxied guests around.

Unfortunately, the construction site was off limits to me. So it is no wonder, I found a way, in his physical absence, to construct anyhow. This house is built on the route that daddy drove home to us every day, and I have commissioned it 'Sir Charles Guest House' to honor his legacy ̶ Charles Blair Clarke (1922-1986).

So my 'Why' for this property is - I love daddy, I love what he taught me and I am committed to serving others hopefully as well as he did. His legacy lives on!

To Daddy!
