Is it drab and rainy on your side of the world? I hope this post cheers you up. The volcanic islands of Bermuda are 600 miles off the coast of South Carolina. It’s surprisingly affordable place to visit if you want semi-tropics and beautiful beaches.
As part of the British Commonwealth, it was fun for me to visit pubs and shops and hang around pink-powder, sandy beaches. What remains in my memory from the visit is the hue of blue that’s distinct to Bermuda. Here are some shots I took when I hiked around Horseshoe Bay.
Bermuda became a British colony following the 1707 unification of the parliaments of Scotland and England which created the United Kingdom. Bermuda is the oldest remaining British Overseas Territory and the oldest continuously-inhabited, English-speaking town in the New World. The first capital, St. George’s, was established in 1612.
I’m not a big fan of cruise ships, but I would never have gotten to see Bermuda any other way, so I’m grateful.
Have you been to Bermuda? What did you like about it?
