A day at Elbow Cay
11 April 2019 | Marsh Harbor, Abacos
Eager to show Thom and Lynn as much as we can, we await the clouds that are looming over our head before making a move. Glad to motor through rain but Elbow Cay is just a three mile trek from Marsh Harbor across the Sea of Abaco and we will get there shortly after lunch.
Once lunch is complete, we are anchoring outside of Hope Town and preparing the dinghy for the trip into town. Hope Town is quaint and it reminds me a little of Saint Michaels, Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay. We walk through several shops and enjoy the sights and sounds of people, boats, and birds as we make our way through town.
We stopped at our favorite “watering hole” and enjoyed a couple of Mango Daiquiris. Again it was just fun to sit and look out over the harbor at all the moored boats and the occasional ferry dropping folks here or there.
We continued our walk and shopping tour with the girls going one way and the boys another. Lynn and I stop to take a few pictures of the beach and then continue on to meet the boys.
As luck would have it, somehow Jaxon and a cat got too close to one another and Jaxon got the worst of it. We quickly ended our trip to Hope Town and got Jaxon back to the boat where we could clean him up. As it turns out, though it was a scratch close to his eye, and his “yelp” was about as dramatic as they come, but he was okay.
Our plan for the rest of the day was to do appys and dinner on Ti Amo and then head to the Jib Room for “limbo night”. I will sum it up this way. Appys and dinner were delish and the Jib Room limbo night was a huge disappointment. I don’t believe it has anything to do with the Jib Room itself, I think it is because the crowd that we had there last week in the harbor has moved further north. Most folks are looking for the weather window to return home now and some places are just not as “happening” as they are when the harbor is crowded.
