Bermuda Cruise Week One

We are now sailing on the ms Veendam from New York to Bermuda. Having finished our first 7-day cruise, I can say that this run is different. We sail on Sunday evening and are in St George’s Bermuda on Tuesday morning. We stay here overnight, although the last tender from shore is at 9pm.

You, too, can have a vacation!

St. George is a beautiful small town near several lovely beaches. The colors are stereotypical Bermuda, colorful homes, all with bright white roofs. The water is many shades of blue and warm, making it almost too comfortable snorkeling.

Wonderful for Snorkeling

The next morning we sail at 7am for Hamilton and arrive at 9 am and spend the next 2 nights docked on the main street. It’s great to be able to walk off any time, 24/7. Not that I am up that late anymore, but I like the idea of being able to cross the street to a restaurant. Friday afternoon we begin our sail back to New York. The pattern makes it more challenging to make sales since so many people are off the ship for so long but our first week we did okay. We are hopeful that the rest of the season goes well.

Welcome to St George

True Colors!

I haven’t spent much time exploring from Hamilton because I have been busy with my ASTA newsletter and catching up with some homework. St. George, however, has no free wireless so I can wander without guilt, free to take photos and talk to the locals. So far, I’ve met Emma and Charles, local artists, and Barbara who along with her daughter, Kelly, make beautiful jewelry from sea glass that washes up from all the wrecks. Visit Flickr to see the photos from there.

It seems around every corner there is yet another scene to be captured.

Keep visiting and I’ll try to share what we are doing each week. In the meantime, consider a vacation in Bermuda, cruise or land stay. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.
