Well here we are at the beginning of February and I don't know about you but I am ready to leave this deep freeze we have been in and escape on a tropical mini-vacation. So let me take you on a trip to an island where there are swaying palm trees, pink sand beaches, and more golf courses per square mile than any other country in the world. Where is this dream isle, why Bermuda of course!
From just about any airport on the east coast, beautiful Bermuda is a hop skip and a jump away. In terms of flight time, we're talking just two hours or less!
The only real way to get around this 21 mile long 3 mile wide island paradise is...you guessed it...on a moped.
Miles of coastline are surrounded by tranquil tones of turquoise waters.
There are even underground caves to explore at the Grotto Bay Hotel right by the airport.
I think this area is the prettiest part of the island. It is a small channel lying between the island's capital of Hamilton and the town of St. George, which joins Harrington Sound to the Atlantic Ocean.
And it is known as Flatts Inlet.
The island is filled with history. Below is the unfinished church, a protected historic monument in Bermuda's northern most parish of St. George.
Bermudian homes are the colors of jelly beans with their lime washed rooftops designed to catch the rain water and funnel it in to cisterns below.
We love Bermuda...to me it is one of most intoxicating places in the world. I hope you enjoyed this little getaway...now it's back to another 6 weeks of winter weather until we begin to see the beauty of Spring's return.
