'Addison'

Our newest little great niece.  Isn't she a sweety!

"A Few of My FAVORITE Things"


These are just two of my favorite things, food truly is a comfort when out of your element.  This fudge sauce is at the top of my list for chocolate! (Oops, did you notice the bottle is EMPTY)

Pillow Plump Contest

Okay so your Dad has been a very good COMPANION, we make the bed  together everyday.  YEAH!  So excuse me, but one day I teased him about not getting his pillows fluffed as high as mine.  This is what I found later that day ; )  Gotta LOVE him!
Check this tree out, all the roots and the root on the far left that has grown down from the tree creating another trunk.  Cool huh.

This caught my eye, looks like the building comes right out of the wall.  We figured out that it is of course a garage and the smaller building with a door must house an elevator.  The house is on top of the wall of rock.  It overlooks a beautiful harbor.  Just love this one.

Snapped this picture of a  Bermudian. Quite striking!
In our traveling around the island we were able to snap this photo that shows so well the variations in the color of the ocean.  I'm sure due to the coral reefs here.  Isn't it beautiful, as always the picture is not as good as the real thing.  It's breathtaking!

THE Car Wash : )

Dad has made it his mission to find an automatic car wash here.  He stopped to inquire of a fellow on the street who's response was to be very puzzled by the question.  He did suggest to him that if he would get hold of a bucket and fill it with water, he could perform that task very easily.  But  AHA! We did find the car wash on the island, it's cost for a run through, $32.  The bucket is looking better all the time!

Charming!



This is just one of many beautiful homes here in Bermuda, but it's one of my favorite! 
If you were to look straight out from the front porch you would be looking out over a spectacular bay view.

Shinbone Alley

I love the unique names they have for the many lanes here.  
Also what a great little barbershop!  
I know that Rich H will appreciate this more than most.  
We were in the town of St Georges, on the east end of the island.

HARVESTING POTATOES IN BERMUDA

Dad had to stop and check this out, they were busy harvesting their crop of 'SPUDS'!  
Notice the sacks of spuds that have been hand picked.

"CRUISING"

We made our way downtown the other day, trying to get our bearings and in search of a few necessities.
We turned onto Front St (much like a our Main St.) and this is what we saw.  
It truly was breathtaking!
