Bermuda

Here we are in these numerous small islands that are Bermuda, waiting out the weather alongside the fleet of Tall Ships – anchored right next to the Pride of Baltimore! There must 10 or 12 massive old ships all anchored here in St. George’s. Very neat!

We’ve been here 3 weeks now – a little longer than planned as there hasn’t been a suitable weather window to head out – so we’ve been enjoying ourselves, celebrating Bermuda Day in Hamilton, watching the America’s Cup preliminary races from aboard our friends Mindy and Reinhard’s boat ‘Rockhopper’, strolling around the island and visiting the Oceanographic research center here. All while trying not to spend too much money – it’s a bit of a stark contrast between Dominica, the Caribbean’s second most poor country to Bermuda, the world’s most expensive spot!

Still the weather here has been great – gone is the heat and humidity of the Caribbean – now if the weather between here and Newport would just cooperate!!!
