July 1, 2017 Hopetown, Elbow Cay

Jackie shared another yummy recipe with us.  She called this quick eggs benedict.  We melted cream cheese and the rest of the soft goat cheese that we had in a frying pan.  Then we poached eggs in the cheese and served it over hash browns.  YUMMY!!

Jackie and I planned to spend the day in Hopetown as tourists as the guys went fishing.  Brian took us to shore by dinghy.  We made our first stop at the light house and we all 3 climbed it.  The view from there is so beautiful.

Then Brian dropped us off at the dock for town so we could shop.  There are about 5 gift shops in Hopetown.  So we had fun browsing through them.  Jackie wanted to pick up a few gifts and mementos.

We ended up at the Hopetown Lodge and had a late lunch at the Reef Bar overlooking the Atlantic ocean.  After lunch we walked on the beach then met the guys at the dock in town.

The guys spent the day spear fishing.  They didn’t bring home dinner, but had a great time.

We had to move the boat back to Marsh Harbour today.  Jackie and Brian were flying out of there in the morning.  It took about 90 minutes to move the boat, so I started dinner on the way.  We had mahi again along with some Irish sausages that we saw in Hopetown.  We also had a salad and pasta.  The high light of dinner was the dessert.  We picked up one of Vernon’s famous key lime pies with meringue.  He makes them everyday.  We actually had a piece as soon as we returned to the boat and the rest for dessert. 

The rest of the evening was spent packing then enjoying the evening in the cockpit.
