Man of War

We spent a wonderful morning and afternoon at Man of War Cay yesterday. Like a number of other towns here in the Abacos, the heart of the town is situated between a well protected harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. The residents take a lot of pride in their community. The cottages are well maintained and painted in unusual and fun combinations of pastels and the yards are filled with an amazing variety of colorful flowers and plants.

The other thing we love about these islands is how friendly everyone is. As we stroll down the narrow streets designed for golf carts and bikes, everyone we pass gives us a warm smile and a hello. Even kids and teenagers seem genuinely happy to have us visiting their lovely island.

As we walked along one avenue a spry old woman named Eva stopped her golf cart to ask if we wanted to buy some fresh bread. Of Course we did – and it made fantastic sandwiches back aboard Double Wide!

Later in the afternoon, we did a little snorkeling and took a nap, then headed over to Hope Town for the evening. This is what cruising is all about!!

Here be pirates!

That's the Atlantic right on the other side of that little spit of land.
