Lighthouse

24 March 2014 | Hopetown
Mary&Greg/too windy
We arrived in Hopetown after a quick sail in lots of wind. We are finding that now the distances between places we want to go are short. Another weather front is coming through so we need a hiding place. We arrived at 1:00 hoping to get a mooring ball in the harbor. There is no room to anchor inside the harbor. Ugh, all were taken. So we headed back out and passed the small Lighthouse Marina and gave them a call. Lucky us--a boat was leaving in a few. So we motored in circles until they left. We are just below the Elbow Reef Lighthouse--our boat has the blue sail cover in one of the pictures. This lighthouse was built in the early 1800's by the British. It is one of the few remaining kerosene powered lighthouses in the world. (Think of the book "Light Between Oceans"). It is hand wound every 2 hours during the night. We climbed the 101 stairs to the top and took in the 360 degree views. Fantastic. Hopetown is a picturesque town with colorful small houses. Many are vacation rentals. Some are shops and restaurants. It is a really tough place to have to spend a week!!! In addition, the Atlantic side is a long, pink sand beach. When the wind isn't blowing 25-30 knots it is a great place to walk and snorkel. We are having breakfast at the Hopetown Harbor Lodge overlooking the beach and Atlantic.
