Re: That One Particular Harbor.....

I really Love Cuttyhunk Massachusetts also. Been going there for years and the 360 degree view from the top of the hill is amazing.

Re: That One Particular Harbor.....

Lakka (Paxos, Ionian, Greece)

Sheltered harbour, stunning water and scenery, great waterfront tavernas, picture perfect pint sized village, best of all the frequent company of friends!
My all time favourite harbour .

Am I the only sailor in the world who doesn't like Jimmy Buffett?

Re: That One Particular Harbor.....

Top Four:
-Palmyra Lagoon, hands down. Secluded, beautiful, historic, full of sea life and way way off the normal path and only about 15 boats a year come there. Limit was 6 days and no more than 2 boats in the Lagoon at any time. No other place to anchor but the Lagoon. Need permission to enter Lagoon.
-Musket Cove, Malolo Island, Fiji.-Internsational Cruising crowd and it's Fiji- Oh and Tavarua is right there.
-Any Motu in Vavau'u group-It's Tonga!
-Cat Harbor, Catalina, Between Christmas and New Years-Only 30 nm away from home!

There is a tie for me between Rock Sound, Eleuthera in the Bahamas and the north anchorage on St. Barts. Very different spots, but both 'wish I was there spots' Currently anchored in North Palm Beach and if that Northeast wind ever stops blowing I will get over to Eleuthera.

Re: That One Particular Harbor.....

Refuge Cove, but you'll have to come to Australia to enjoy it.

Why? Because it's remote, beautiful and not full of charterers.

We were once there with a Japanese passenger and he stayed locked in his cabin because unlike back home, there was nobody on such a beautiful beach. These pictures don't do it justice. Only accessible by boat or a 10+ mile hike.

One night of our honeymoon was on that island 30 years ago 17th of April.

Can you suggest a marina for a 32 footer? Might make an enjoyable second honeymoon.

Probably not. There must be another. Somewhere. Hello? Anyone?

LOL! Dan lost a super-expensive pair of prescription suns when he tried to catch a thrown line that knocked them clear off his head in the Chesapeake's murky waters 5 or 6 years ago. Since then, we've been seen in those dorky retainer straps...
