Hope Town - 2017
Apr 16 thru Apr 18
|A lone palm tree stands on the ocean beach south of |
Hope Town Harbor Lodge on Elbow Cay.
|Tahiti Beach is the southernmost point on Elbow Cay. |
This view is looking toward the east.
|This is a cove just north of Tahiti Beach.|
|This photo of the sand bar at Tahiti Beach was taken at low tide.|
We walked on the sand bar and then on the beach toward the ocean. The water was very warm--about 72 degrees F. On the way back the wind was a little more in our face and the trip was pretty wet.
We ended the day buy having pizza for dinner at the Hope Town Inn & Marina.
|In this case, doing laundry in paradise cost $22 for 2 loads of |
laundry, washed and dried. Though costly, the facilities
and environment around Hope Town
Inn & Marina are wonderful!
|Our mooring for the entire time in Hope Town was |
very close to the center of the village.
|A very pretty day sailor is tied to the dock along |
Nigh Creek, just off the southeast from
Hope Town 's harbor.
Tuesday, April 18, is our last full day in Hope Town--we will be leaving tomorrow afternoon on a rising tide. Again, it is a beautiful day!
|Most of the pilings used for docks in Hope Town are painted |
white on the upper 2 or 3 feet or so. Some of
the decks are painted as well.

all the boats with AIS transmitters heading
back toward the U.S.
