Stopover at West End

Stopover at West End

Cruising out of Treasure Cay, we took Don’t Rock passage for the first time. It was great! We left at high tide so that we’d have plenty of water and our Explorer Charts guided us right through. We anchored at Great Sale Cay with several other trawlers overnight. On Tuesday we headed for West End. It was pretty rolly getting into the Old Bahama Bay marina but it was good to be at the...

Stopover at Treasure

Stopover at Treasure

We’re headed back home now and our first stopover was at Treasure Cay for one night. Who could resist this beach, anyway? On our way back from the pool we spotted one of our favorite boats from our 2010 Baseball Cruise, Phantasma — how exciting to see old acquaintances in new places! Phantasma, if we recall correctly, is a 94' Nordlund which was custom-built on the west coast and...

Marsh Harbour

Marsh Harbour

Marsh Harbour is a good place to wash down the boat, stock up the ships stores, and buy rum at a good value. We bought rum at Bristol Wines and Spirits and they delivered it right to the boat! We docked at the Conch Inn, on the same dock as the Great Harbour Charter Boats (Semper FI III, Spoonbill, and Capt Eric) and another GH47 named Pokey (what a great name for a Great Harbour). Annie was...

Tahiti Beach & Cracker P’s

Tahiti Beach & Cracker P’s

On Friday morning we anchored Seadee off of Tahiti Beach and took the dinghy to shore. It was low tide so there was actually a whole beach there and we camped out with our cooler and beach chairs until lunchtime. Lunch had to be at Cracker P’s, just across the channel, where they had the best coconut marinated conch we’ve tasted in the Abacos. The shrimp and Wahoo wasn’t bad,...

Hope Town

Hope Town

Hope Town is always a favorite. This time we sampled the frozen mocha frappes at the Hope Town Coffee House, which rival Starbucks any day. We strolled around and noticed that quite a bit of painting has gone on since we were here, as well as some dock-building on the lighthouse side of the harbor. We dined at Harbor’s Edge for dinner and it was both waterfront and finer dining than your...

Man-O-War Cay

Man-O-War Cay

On Monday we headed over to Man-O-War Cay with some of the best weather in the world. The entrance to the harbor here is narrow and must be entered carefully, but we got a slip at the Man-O-War Marina for 2 nights with no problem — in fact, they have a 2-for-1 night special right now. We spent Monday afternoon exploring the town, visiting the beach (which was surprisingly beautiful and...
