Cruising the Abaco Islands: Hope Town

It was a destination that rivaled all others. Hope Town, Abaco was not only the picturesque bahamian spot to pick up a mooring ball, but it was a place worth spending two nights of a short week-long trip. Again, we had our scares when it came to getting into port. This time, it wasn’t just […]
