We sailed with Celebrian to Man-O-War where Rob and Christine needed to tend to boat issues. Man-O-War is the shipbuilding capital of the Bahamas (think runabouts), and is a totally white community that abstains from the consumption of alcohol, at least in public.
In addition to full service boat yards, Man-O-War offers fantastic shopping for high quality souvenirs and to die for baked goods found at Lola’s Bakery, run out of her home. Mr. Lola is known for his famous conch fritter batter, which you can buy frozen for $8 a margarine-sized tub. We ran into Damien and Mark from Barnacle, whom we had met at Lorraines way back in January, and dragged them along for the experience.
