Bermuda: Day 5

This morning we got up and caught the bus to the Dockyard. It was another hot day, and I was glad for the cool bus ride. We shopped and did some sight seeing. The hand blown glass shop had beautiful old bottles in addition to ones they make there.

After walking the dockyard, we took the ferry to Hamilton, had lunch, went to the grocery store, then went home.

Bermuda: Day 4

A lazy Sunday. We went to the The Fairmount Southhampton for brunch. It was soooo yummy. The Eggs Benedict and Bread & Butter Pudding with Sauce was to die for. Then we came home and tried to stay cool. It is HOT!

Bermuda: Day 3

Oh, another beautiful day in paradise. Started with a little trip to town with Nikki on the big pink bus. Breakfast involved a Chai tea, iced coffee and we split a chicken salad sandwich. After a bit of discussion we figured it would take us further than a muffin.

After shopping in town, we walked to the Bull's Head Farmers Market. It, of course, was delightful. I'm such a sucker for a farmer's market.

After we got home, Nikki bedded down for a rest, and I jumped on the scooter. First I went to the grocery store for a few items for dinner. After I got home and put up the groceries I decided to go to Chaplin Bay for Canada Day. It was a sight to behold. So many, well, Canadians!

Bermuda: Day 2

These were taken around and on Cobb Hill Road. And it was named aptly. I didn't think I was going to make one of the hills! I got up early...a little before sunrise and took out on foot. (Although the preferred mode of transportation on the island is scooters.)

Warning: there will be many shutter, door, gates and roof photos in the Bermuda series.

Bermuda: Day 1

Not really Florida, but, Oh well. I am on vacation. And where does one that lives in Florida vacation? Bermuda! The next few posts will be full of my trip there. Nikki had a bout of surgery, so I'm actually here to help her. But, as luck would have it, she seems to be doing well, so it will be more of a pleasure trip than I had originally thought!

These were all taken at the lovely Horseshoe Bay.
