Near Tahiti Beach is the little town of Hope Town. It is a lovely town, with pastel colored homes along its shore. We spent a morning there. They kids were excited to buy Bahamian stamps to mail postcards to friends and family. We even bought a homemade Key Lime Pie to have for dessert after dinner. (it was delicious!) We had a nice time walking around the small town, waving at the kids in school, and seeing the ocean side of the island. We even found a play park where the kids had a great time playing on the slides and climbing the trees. We noticed though how hot it was on land. Out on the boat there are almost always constant breezes that keeps it cool until about dinner time, but on land, it was so hot.
Before we headed back to the boat we crossed Hope Towns Harbor to the light house where we climbed the steps to the top, luckily its not too tall. It is still a working light house with an oil lit lantern.
