The Bight of Acklins is one of my favorite spots in the Bahamas... Very remote, you're really on your own down there... If you're into ghost towns, this is the place...

Here's an old church in the abandoned settlement of Pompey Bay, off the beautiful anchorage in Delectable Bay...



OK, you're up again...

That sure looks like a beautiful spot. Wish I was there about now. It was -22F here a couple of night ago. Here's another, then I'll just watch the great photos for a while.
