The Color Blue in Bermuda

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?

  1. You do take some great photos and I am addicted to the color blue! I took a cruise to Bermuda a couple of years age. I also am not a big fan of cruises but we were “allowed” off the boat for a few hours to explore.
