Postcard from the Bahamas #7

Easter Sunday in Hope Town!
The place was buzzing with activity.
There was an open-air Catholic Mass under the trees at the water’s edge by the Town Dock.
The whole town came out for the Easter Egg Hunt, held after Sunday School let out, on “The Grassy Hill” next to the Fire Station.  What great fun!

Now remember, this is an island and space is limited and can’t be wasted. The Grassy Hill does double duty as a public park complete with a memorial to those lost at sea in a ship wreck in 1942.  But its original use was as a burial ground for 100 victims of the cholera epidemic back in the 1800’s.  

We hope you had as nice an Easter Sunday as the crew of Morning Star.  
It was a beautiful day!

Best Regards,
Randy & Cindy
