My overnight stay was coming to an end , but one last stop before we leave stunning Mioko island at Duke Of York Islands. This stop was Queen Emma plantation- or whats left of it in Mioko!
Locals say stories of Queen Emma. A fierce lady who brought so much to people. People here still talk about her . How she walked around village and talked to people, how she say on the white sandy beach at Mioko bay and looked over newly planted coconut trees. How she wore white and liked her drink when she got older. Seems there are a lot of rumors and a lot of truth. Emma was a very shrewd, entrepreneurial person who worked for and against whoever suited her ambitions at the time. These included commercial enterprises, royalty, local tribes, head-men, government agencies and religious organizations.But there is a lot more to her story...
