It has been a ',topsy turvy', year with all that has been going on in the region and despite the fact that Turtle Bay has remained a little haven of peace as always we have seen one of the quietest years for a while at the hotel. Nevertheless we are all celebrating the passing of a very peaceful set of elections and all signs for the future look very rosie so fingers crossed and the rest of 2013 and 2014 should be good for us all.
