Making Dreams Come True At Small Hope Bay Lodge
Dick and Ginny came to Small Hope as newlyweds on an adventure honeymoon 48 years ago. In 1962, there was only one dirt road on the island, no telephone or electricity and no bridge over Fresh Creek, which means that guests arrived to Small Hope via boat and the women were lifted off and carried to dry sand by one of the men.
48 years later, the young at heart lovers returned for their second honeymoon. Dick and Ginny entertained and delighted the other guests through their week stay with colorful stories of Small Hope in the early days and from other exciting times in their lives.
Ginny told Mr. Birch that her only dream was to take a boat ride on the Androsian water. Ginny had some mobility issues so our crack team of maintenance staff engineered a queen's throne so Ginny could be lifted onto and off the boat. Divemaster Loren took her and her love on a spin around the lagoon, fulfilling her dream!
Here is what Dick had to say about Small Hope:
"Small Hope gives us a large hope for coming back and it won't be another 48 years! May the wings of love never lose a feather." Pin It Now!
