Hope Town - Day 2
We are having a great time here in Hope Town. Everybody is very friendly and the two places we had lunch, Sunday and today, let us stay at their resort for the entire afternoon which meant using their beach, beach chairs, pools, and getting drinks from their bars. Had two great afternoons. Today we went shelling on Tahiti Beach which is on the southern end of Elbow Cay, and then over to the Abacos Inn for lunch and an afternoon pool session. Joy collected about 12 shells today to add to her collection. The Lubbers Landing sign is on Tahiti Beach, so apparently you can call on VHF 16 and they will motor over some drinks.
Sunday we had church in the park. Father Roger came over on the ferry from Marsh Harbor. He does three Masses on Sundays, Treasure Cay, Marsh Harbour, and Hope Town, all three short ferry rides.
Here is a picture of Joy cutting up a coconut that she found on the beach.
Tomorrow we are going to climb the 101 stairs of the Hope Town Lighthouse after breakfast. You can only get there by dinghy. We have time as high tide to let us safely get out of Hopetown Harbor is around 1 pm.
