For years, a wooden Adirondack-style loveseat sat at the northern foot of The Queen’s Highway in Hope Town. It was the ideal spot from which to view the lighthouse and to watch boats come and go from the harbour.
Tom and I had our photo taken in the chair during our honeymoon in 2007. And every trip since, we’ve taken some time to sit there for a bit and just watch the world go by.
Sadly, that chair was lost to Hurricane Dorian. Before long, however, someone kindly built a replacement. (If you know who it was, drop me a note so we can give them proper credit.)
In July 2021, a Hope Town resident posted a few photos of the new chair on social media. Many people commented about how happy they were to see it.
So many folks described their own special moments in, and memories of, the previous chair. One woman shared a photo of herself and her husband in the seat — it was a special memory, she said, as he had since passed away. Another woman revealed that her husband proposed to her at that spot.
What about you? Have you celebrated a special moment (pre- or post-Dorian) in “the chair”? Have you had your photo taken there?
