We had a great and relaxing time. Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory, self-governed but still sharing the British Monarch as titular head of state. It is entirely a first world country and not part of the Caribbean islands though most people refer to it as such. It is basically 600 miles east of South Carolina and the nearest land mass is the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Flying here costs as much as flying to Florida or New York. Once you're down it is more expensive than NC but on par with costs with NYC and other big cities in the US and Europe.
We spent a good bit of time hanging out with former OSB athlete and our friend Alex, A Bermudian, and his girlfriend Sheryl. They basically gave us a tour of the island and a trip out to a shipwreck and some of the boiler reefs off-coast. Lots of fun.
We managed to get a few good runs in and I got a couple short swims in at Horseshoe Bay.
Enough words: here are pictures.
