It was touch and go if we were going to make it to Bermuda as for two days it was very rough weather. But we did make it in the end for, four hours.
I went from a cruise ship to a cruise around the Bermudan Islands! It was so nice to finally be in the sunshine and see the turquoise water.
After six and half days sailing across the Atlantic Ocean and the last few days being very rough it was very pleasant to see the calm after the storm.
Hamilton in Bermuda is a beautiful place, it is very green and all the houses are pastel colours with white roofs. It was fun to cruise around the Bermudan Islands to see how the other half live in their million or billion dollar houses.
This time I didn’t have time to explore the island as we were only docked for four hours. So, I made the most of my time going on this coastal cruise and I had so much fun.
Dreaming which house, I would live in! I would love to live in one of the pastel pink homes with the manicured gardens with a dock for my boat! It’s nice to dream!
There are many islands as you sail the along coast, some have one or a few houses on them. While some are so tiny so there are just plants or trees growing on them. Some of these tiny islands had a cove beach and people would sail over to them to have a picnic.
We saw the homes of Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones, the ‘The Wizard of Oz’ illustrator William Denslow, the man who invented the floppy disk and many more homes of the rich.
The tour lasted around two hours and they had rum cocktails! Rum always makes it fun!
The 35th America’s Cup is being hosted by Hamilton this year and we saw some of the sailboats wiz by!
When we got off the boat I had a quick walk along Front Street, it was after 5pm on a Saturday afternoon so most of the shops were closed. There were some British shops like Marks & Spencer and The Body Shop.
Bermuda is a British colony and the oldest colony and was founded in 1790. It was nice being in a British territory with all the Union Jack flags and the Anglican cathedral, I felt very much at home!
The day I was there at the end of April it was windy and around 22*C.
- Weather: 20*C – 30*C
