Little Harbor, Abaco - We love this place!

Has everyone experienced places they cherish yet have mixed feelings about sharing for fear that when we next return it will have lost the magic?  I’ve collected a few spots of this nature.  Little Harbor, Abaco with it’s easy pace and welcoming locals; a protected harbor where sea turtles sunning on the surface are confused with the tired mooring balls.

 The easy access to surfing at the cut or explorations in Old Robinson Bight.  Pete’s Pub on the beach with sand for the floor, the bow of a ship for the bar, succulent burgers, and friendly mix of locals and transients.  The artist’s studio and adjacent gallery.

 Residing at the southern end of the Abacos, Little Harbor is no secret to cruisers.  The harbor and nearby Lynyard Cay anchorage are natural areas for staging a passage further down island or a welcome sight for those island hopping northward.  For crews simply exploring the Abacos it does take some effort to reach the end of the road.   Skiffs and high speed power vessels can easily make a day run down the Marsh Harbor area.  I guess what I’m working towards is the realization that Little Harbor is no secret spot to horde away for fear of others spoiling my Eden.  It is already a well-traveled and much beloved spot that manages to play host to many travelers yet retain its allure.

Thanks to the locals Greg, Jeff, Samatha, Cindy, Charlie, Tony who welcomed us and aided in a night of overindulgence. 

Thanks to the transients Willie, Carolyn  Dan, Tyler, et. al. who shared a slice of time with us in Little Harbor.

Take care of the magic we will return.
