Elbow Cay

Elbow Cay is a six-mile long cay in the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas. Originally populated by British loyalists fleeing the newly independent United States of America in 1785, it has survived on fishing, boat building, and salvage. Its main village of Hope Town surrounds a protected harbor with a noted red and white striped 120 ft (36m) lighthouse built in 1863.

    To face the garment of rebellion
    With some fine color that may please the eye

    Of hurly-burly innovation.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
