Our move from Man-O-War to Hope Town was uneventful, but shortly, and I mean within minutes of putting down our anchor, in comes Island Fever, with BB and Howard. They just returned from Eleuthera and the Exumas and are making their way back to the states. We had a great time hanging out for a couple of days before they where on their way.
The Captain and I had several fun days climbing the light house, looking around town and perfecting our selfie skills.
We attended the St. James Methodist Church on Sunday morning. Mr. C. Vernon Malone was the Lay Preacher. Sermon was wonderful, as was the music and service. They had a lot of competition to keep our attention from this view past the alter.
After church we took a long walk along the beach. We gathered quite a pile of sea glass to add to our collection.
Flowers and Gardens. This is the best time of year to visit the Abacos, flowering trees and more fill the eye and nose.
While we were in Hope Town, our first year anniversary of moving aboard happened. June 7th! Thank you Captain for a great year, can’t wait to see what next year brings us.
The celebratory meal. Steak and lobster, sweet potatoes and a special bottle of wine given to the Captain at retirement by Sam.
The harbor is a busy place, boats coming and going, water taxis and ferry boats. And this…deliveries. No Rooms to Go van for these mattresses being delivered to the Hope Town Inn and Marina, just pile ’em on the deck and unload to the dock.
This was our spot by the pool most afternoons. I can’t believe I had to “borrow” this pic from BB’s Facebook page. I was enjoying the relaxing so much I never took one pic with Jack and Cheryl, or of any of the activities going on pool side all week at the Hope Town Inn and Marina.
Tommy and Alicia returned from Little Harbor to hang out by the pool for a bit. We had many weeks of great fun with this family. We are so happy to see them stretching out to explore with young kids aboard.
Before they left, I had the blessing of baptizing Alecia in the Sea of Abaco.
We will miss this crew!
Sky still loves the Captain, as long as he keeps his hands to himself. The Captain’s finger is healing very nicely. We were blessed with Ann, and the clinic nurse at Hope Town for helping us get everything moving in the right direction for healing.
We made our stay in Hope Town a bit longer than we might have because of a forecast of heavy weather heading our way. And even though we did get some rain, enough to fill the water tanks and wash the dog and boat, we just mostly spent another beautiful week in paradise.
We are finally current in our log!!! Stay tuned for pics from Little Harbor and Lynyard Cay. Thanks for following along with us.
