Goodbye Elbow Cay

It's been a few days since our last post because we've been enjoying our company. Peter arrived a few days ago so we rented a golf cart and explored Elbow Cay that way. Peter enjoyed the tour, one bar/restaurant at a time.

 Mud is a lady killer, and he knows it... wish I would've had him when I was 25.

Our friends Capt. Bob and Capt. Mary from Stuart were working the boat next to us. Bare Bones. Because they were tending to their duties we didn't get to spend much time with them, but we managed to sneak in a bit of fun from time to time.

After a few days we decided to leave Sea Spray and run to the new marina in Hope Town Harbour.
Hope Town Marina is new and a very nice place with a decent restaurant and pool bar, but they're new and somewhat disorganized. We're sure they'll get better in time, but Sea Spray is still our favorite on Elbow Cay. We only stayed one night. Oh yeah... the bugs!!

Hope Town Marina is on the same side of the Harbour as the lighthouse so we climbed the stairs to get a few pics.

This lighthouse is probably the most photographed structure in the Abacos

Though a lot of very steep steps, it's worth the view at the top. Sometimes I forget just how pretty the Abacos are.

So we cranked up and pulled out of the Harbour yesterday and are now in Marsh Harbour. Lot's of old friends over here too. We had dinner at Wally's last night and it was as good as ever. Wally has passed away since we were here last and his daughter sold the place, but not much else has changed. Same menu, quality, and good service.

Who knows how long we'll stay here? Pig roast tomorrow at Nipper's on Guana?? Mañana...
