We then moved to Marsh Harbour and anchored there for two nights. Marsh Harbour isvtbe third largest settlement in the Bahamas. It has a grocery store that rivals any American one! But prices are still double! We ate at Mangos for lunch and then signed up for the steak nigh dinner at Marsh Harbour marina ! They have a rake and scrape party twice a week, a guy shows up with a bunch of saws and screwdrivers, morrocas and a limbo set up. A great time is had by all. We tried our hand at playing the saws but not the limbo. The fuel dock hand named Desmond is the resident limbo expert. He eventually goes under a 8 inch high bar that's on fire, he lights and smokes a cigarette as he goes under! I would not have believed it if I had not seem it with my own eyes!!
We left marsh Harbour and sailed north to fisher bay and anchored there do we could go to the two beach bars on the island , Grabbers and Nippers! Both are cool beach bars with swimming pools and water toys you can use if you buy food or drinks!
After one night we the headed to Hopetown Harbour wherever picked up app ring ball! This is the coolest place we have been to yet! Beautiful Harbour with a world famous lighthouse that beam sweeps over us each night, and a wonderfully bunch of well cared for. Pastel gingerbread houses and cool bars and eating places!!!!
