Keep On Cruising!!!!!

This Cruise ship seen off of Tilloo Cut from my front porch, one of the benefits of the Abaco Chain is we are too shallow to accommodate these ships which keeps us sheltered from their impact. Pretty to watch cruise on by............

Gas Delivery Abaco Style

Gas is delivered to Marsh Harbour, then into tankers pulled by trucks onto barge, then via barge to outer Cays for delivery to marinas and gas stations. Makes the simple life we live a little more expensive and labor intensive, however, it's all good!

Peacock On A Hot Tin Roof

This Peacock ,who lives on Lubbers Quarters, has found his way to my roof. He has lived here on this Island for awhile now and use to look at himself in a full length mirror, I believe the mirror may have broken and he is no longer the fairest of them all!!!

Regatta Time In Abaco

Fun was had by all at the Hopetown Harbour Lodge Friday night. The sailors celebrated with free Bacardi Rum drinks and another wonderful Abaco event was enjoyed by all.
