Abaco's, Exumas, Ling Island, & Turks & Caicos

Hi You All,
Well we're finally here in Hope Town in the Abaco's and heading to the Turks & Caicos. Free diving is good and fish dinners couldn't be better

Nope, it will be our first time. Currently we are on the hook at Little Harbor waiting for a weather window to run to Eleuthera. Click image for larger version

We did go in at a high tide, but could make it in as long as it's not dead low.

If you want to experience what it was like in most of those places 40 years or more ago, head over to Salt Cay when you are in the T&Cs.

Are you staying at Turtle Cove Marina?

If you were in the Exumas 35 or so years ago we may have seen one another. Wasn't that much traffic back then. Anybody remember a sailing vessel named "tanaquil".
