Postcard from the Bahamas #6

After almost a week, we left GTC, headed to Hope Town.  
There is a shallow area between Whale Cay and Treasure Cay which prevents passing through the area and requiring you to run through the notorious Whale Cay Passage, out into the Atlantic and back inside by Guana Cay.  It is normally no big deal unless there is a “Rage” on…a condition caused by strong NE winds.  While we didn’t have a rage, the wind has been blowing pretty good for over a week and there was a large swell to contend with.  Fortunately not enough to be dangerous, just a bit uncomfortable.
Hope Town was the prize at the end of the trip and we picked up a mooring shortly after lunch.

Best Regards,

The view out our back door.  You can’t come to Hope Town without the obligatory lighthouse photo.
Summer Magic.  There plenty of cottages for rent in Hope Town.
Darkness and Chaos?  Not in my life!
