Bermuda Vacation 2011: Last Day in Paradise

What do you do when you have 24 hours left in paradise?  Do you just sit in one place and try to slow the clock or do you run at full speed and absorb all you can?  We just weren’t sure what to do.

We had a good rain overnight, the humidity was really high but the skies were clearing very nicely. So, all in all, it looked like a “go” day.

Bermuda Vacation 2010: Day 9

Brock and I set out this morning for our walk.  Darin told us to stay off the Railway Trail so we hit to the streets and tribe roads.  Then we skipped over to South Shore, down to Chaplain Bay, then over to Horseshoe Beach….ahhhh!! For the first time in my life, I climbed up the large hill of rocks on the west end of the beach (the rocks you see above). The views were FANTASTIC!!

Bermuda Vacation 2010: Day 1

Well, it’s officially Day 1…I woke up here, I ate all my meals here, I’m sleeping here…I’m HERE!!!

Darin, Jesse & Mom took off on the mopeds this morning to do some GeoCaching on the other end of the island.  Yes, Mom drove a moped…I wish I had a picture for you!

We got a late start this morning.  It just seemed to take a long time to find breakfast and chase all the ants away that had overtaken the kitchen cabinets.  Yes, living in paradise has it’s disadvantages…humidity, mold & mildew, ants.  I’ll suffer through it if I must. Continue reading
