"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Mar. 30 – Little Harbour, Great Abaco Island

Pete’s Pub Mooring

“The ocean makes me feel really small and it makes me put my whole life into perspective… it humbles you and makes you feel almost like you’ve been baptized. I feel born again when I get out of the ocean.” —Beyoncé Knowles

We returned to a few of the small beaches this morning during low tide to do more beach combing. Stan found a new record holding sea biscuit and we also found more sea glass on our special beach. Our anchorage was beginning to fill up so after lunch decided to head over to Little Harbour.

Little Harbour is a picturesque and well-protected harbor with an almost perfect semicircle white beach on the east side and high cliffs on the west side. The shore is lined in palm trees and is exactly what you’d picture in your mind if you think of an island paradise. The only businesses in Little Harbour are Pete’s Pub and Peter Johnston Gallery, Studio and Foundry. Pete's Pub is a very laid-back island pub that was fashioned out of the pilothouse and deckhouse of the sailing ship "Langosta", one of the Johnston family's original live-aboards.

We picked up a mooring ball and then went ashore to explore. We sat and enjoyed one of Pete’s Pub’s special rum concoctions before exploring the beach on the north side. It’s a very rugged beach and we could hear the breaking waves from the boat this evening. We also wandered through the gallery. I really wanted to get here last Saturday for an art show they had, but the weather and wind didn’t cooperate. Little Harbour is a cute, quiet, relaxing place…a deserted island, that makes you feel like you’re a million miles from the real world.
