Hope Town, Elbow Cay, Bahamas

24 April 2024


The sail to Hopetown on Elbow Cay was only one hour and highly anticipated. We had all heard great things about a little bigger town with shops and a lighthouse.
From a distance you can see the Elbow Reef Lighthouse, the only one in the world not electrified. It still runs on kerosene.
After anchoring we dinghied to shore and went to Captain Jack’s for lunch. I got a sands pink Radler, conch chowder with Bahamian Bread and some of the spiciest mac and cheese I have ever had.
The rest of the afternoon we walked a loop around town, checked out a few gift shops and had ice cream at Skoops.
I got Chris and I t-shirts and we were able to replenish the alcohol supply a little. I got a canned mojito that turned out to be wonderful.
Back on the boat we listened to music and did some dancing as the sun went down. What a wonderful night even before our dinner of beef roast, mashed potatoes and green beans. This is one night I will remember forever.
