Still more wind!
13 December 2011 | Hopetown on Elbow Cay, Bahamas
Sunny and still blowing 20-25 knots
Our lovely guests (Barb and Jill) have come and gone and spent a windy week on Elbow Cay staying at the Hopetown Harbour Lodge. We managed to get out sailing one day, and ventured north to Man-of-War Cay, south to Tahiti Beach, and then back into the harbour while the tide allowed. It's difficult to get into and out of a shallow harbour on the same day when you need the high tide in both directions!
Lots of beach glass, lots of cycling, lots of walking.... we've decided to investigate the feasibility of purchasing some land and building a home here in the islands... a great excuse to wander all over the place exploring options...
We'll spend Christmas and New Years here in Hopetown, and see if we have any luck on the real estate front. One step at a time!
Still no luck with the genset, but the solar panels are doing a great job keeping the beer cold and the batteries fully charged.
Lots of folks are heading north on airplanes to spend Christmas in the snow, so the harbour is pretty quiet... just the way we like it!
We'll be at Captains Jack for trivia tonight with the two for one Margaritas!
Still no sign of snow...
