Hope Town, Bahamas Vacation

Photos show the first few days of our Hope Town, Bahamas Vacation. (Wait, we are always on vacation, but this really does feel like a vacation.) We love it here! When you look at these photos, you will see why....

Radeen and Hayden in the shade under umbrellas on the beach
The harbor view from the Lighthouse
Lighthouse keeper, ELVIS, lights the wick and adjusts the gas flow
Every two hours Elvis turns the hand crank to raise the weights that make the lenses rotate

Crowds do not exist on these beautiful Bahamian beaches

I love taking architecture photos in Hope Town, the homes are so beautiful

------------------------------------Mustache and Goatee be gone---------------------------------

So, it was getting old, the mustache and the goatee, plus they are all gray! I don't have gray hair, but my mustache and goatee are. They are gone now. Here are photos to show the options.(Radeen likes the last one!)

Mustache and Goatee, option 1
Mustache only, option 2
No mustache and no goatee, option 3
Living on a boat in Hope Town Harbor on a secure mooring ball can really spoil a boater. There are many cruisers who make this their winter home and I can see why. The town is a dream, the facilities are beautiful, the lighthouse is a world treasure and the mooring balls are secure. Hope Town, Bahamas, add this charming village to your must visit locations.....

As you know I like the hair...
But then again - It's not me that you need to keep happy :-)

A happy wife makes for a happy boat.
