COMMENT: Beach House – MOORED – Hope Town, Elbow Cay – Abaco Group-Bahamas

We\’ve caught up on the position reports as of this notice….

Marsh Harbour is a bit industrial and just a \”marketing stop\”. As such, we moved over late in the day
the 7 miles to Hope Town with it\’s famous \”fresnel light\”. One of only three that are non electronically operated (we think?) on the
West Coast of the America\’s. Someone has to re-align the lens every two hours. The entrance here was another very shallow affair where I saw
as little as 2 feet 6 inches under the hull briefly. This means our daggerboards have left their mark in the sand….(at negative tide!)…:-)

This is a classic \”Hurricane Hole\”, founded in 1785 by \”Loyalists\” from South Carolina. The locals sound like a cross between the British and \”the old south\”.

Blogs soon, we\’ll try a few photos if the internet here allows.
Scott and Nikki
