Bermuda 2011

Last autumn Janda and I had the luxury to go to Bermuda with some friends and boy was it amazing! We were only there for 48 hours, so we zoomed around the island on scooters and saw just about everything thanks to our tour guides Kat and Jeff, who had visited several times before. The sites to see were amazing and I snapped a lot of photos from the back of the scooter.

After we arrived in Bermuda, we stopped for lunch on the way to the hotel and had some great sandwiches on a deck overlooking the ocean. Then we checked in to our hotel and stopped long enough to drop off our bags, put on our swimsuits and check out the view.

We started out at this beach and then walked down the coastline along all the little beaches to Horseshoe Beach.

At some of the little beaches the waves were very strong. The sand drops off very quickly, so the waves are higher than they seem.

The next day we went to St. George.

Janda loves to visit historical sites. This is one of the many forts on the island.

Love the water color!

Speeding around the island.

We went snorkeling at this shipwreck. There were fish everywhere that would swarm you if you fed them pretzels.

The beach was very peaceful before breakfast. The water was warm even then! Janda and I had one more swim before we left around lunchtime.

The view that we had all weekend- our tour guides!

On our way home. Bye bye tropical weather. :(

Bermuda was awesome and Janda and I hope to make it back some day- for more than 48 hours. The flight was less than 2 hours and the atmosphere is absolutely tropical.
