Hope Town Style

This past weekend I took a stroll through the historic harbourside village of Hope Town on Elbow Cay in the Abacos. Widely recognized for the red-and-white candy striped lighthouse that has kept watch over clap-board houses for the past 150 years, we comparatively took note of the island’s more intricate decorative details. Specifically, the exposed top-hinges seen on the windows of the Hummingbird Cottage Art Centre, the layered fish scales cascading an outer-wall, and of course the gingerbread-style carvings on trims, fences and balustrades – adorning if not every, then every other house. Captured below are a handful of photographs taken during our aimless walk through town.
