Things are changing here in Hope Town and it is getting much busier on land and sea. The harbor is filling up, as are the rental homes. In preparation for the holidays, the daily freight boat was packed with supplies. I'm not sure we have ever seen it this full.
Even our little local grocery store was stocked up more than ever. We took advantage and bought as much as possible, because suddenly the shelves will be bare with the Christmas crowds. You can imagine what numerous charter catamarans holding 10 people each, can do to the stores' stock, along with the renters staying in houses. At least it only lasts for 2-3 weeks, and then thankfully it becomes quieter once again until Spring Break.
