After our week long vacation, it is so hard to describe Moonrise, it is a combination of the simple times, time for yourself, time to watch finch birds taking times to drink and eat, watch the curly tails here and there, take time to watch a hermit crab, basically time to do the things that we forgot existed, the life that goes around and we don't notice, this cottage has the ability to heal your soul and clear you mind, the night sky and the sound of the waves it is refreshing and therapeutic.
You routine becomes yourself, nature and your new method of transportation - your boat, I brought a Garmin marine GPS that was an excellent companion, cay hopping is the most amazing experience in life, learning the story of the Abacos is fascinating, talking to the locals and their legitimate interest to enlighten you is amazing, this experience reminds me of a movie called "The Trumman Show" but the difference is that this is real, Hope town one of the close cays is like that, but you are living it., Guana Cay, Man-O War are other cays we visited, their distinct character and story will leave you amazed.
I travel extensively for work and leisure, and have seen most of the caribbean islands, but The Abacos cays are a secret paradise that only a few know, then you add Moonrise to the mix and you will get an unforgettable experience.
This has been the first time in my life that when I saw the coast of Florida my heart was broken, the other half was left in The Abacos, Marlee will make sure you enjoy your journey, go and experience this amazing adventure for yourself.
