The World's Smallest Draw Bridge - 18"

It is for small sail boats and it manually operated. Several guys will grab onto the mast from up on the road way and guide it through the 18" wide opening.

 

It is also a great place for the local fishermen.

The water was very clear and we could see schools of fish swimming where the fishermen were dangling their hooks.

Judith just reminded me that Dennis, our Cab Driver, told us yesterday that Bermudan Kids start school and age 3 and are required to stay in school until Age 18.

 

He also said that Parents can be jailed if they don't keep their kids in school.

We noticed yesterday that the entire island is really clean.

 

Everyone picks up trash when they see it.

 

There is a $500 fine, strictly enforced, for littering, according to Dennis.

Sounds as if you had a wonderful tour yesterday.

 

We always do a private taxi tour when visiting a port for the first time. Our best tours have been with a taxi driver. Have always found them to be friendly and knowledgeable.

 

Enjoy your boat ride today!

We are about to head up to the Windjammer for Breakfast.

 

 

I am going to try to upload a short video to YouTube while we are gone. The ship may have video uploads blocked. We will find out.

 

 

 

More later including an update on the Donut Crises

I dilute my coffee too. I think that the "terribleness" is that it is really too strong!

 

Read before a cruise once to add a smidgen of salt to a cup of coffee to tame bitterness. Tried it on board, and it actually works.

CHOPS (Continued)

 

The waitress came by with some optional sauces and I selected the Bearnaise Sauce which is my favorite. It was excellent!

 

DSCN0544_zps73e39439.jpg

 

The Filet was a perfect cut of meat! I did not see any need to upgrade to an additional cost aged cut.

 

For my sides I had Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus. I asked for and got some Sour Cream to go with the Potatoes.

 

DSCN0545_zpse60053a9.jpg

 

A Sea Salt encrusted Baked Potato was available but I did not order one. I was brought up to eat the skin and if it is covered with sea salt, it is too salty to eat.

 

The Desert was excellent! The photo tells you what you need to know.

 

DSCN0546_zpsb28324cd.jpg

 

 

Overall, I still enjoyed CHOPS in spite of the changes and new menu.

 

Trainman, no need to tell you that the potato skin is the most nutritious part of the potato.

That is Gibb's Hill Lighthouse and the views from up there are spectacular.

 

The tour guide we had on our last trip to Bermuda was the granddaughter of the Gibbs hill Lighthouse keeper. Some very interesting stories.

With Judith feeling "normal" again we are keeping busy.

 

We are about to head down to the pier for a glass bottom boat ride.

St George, Bermuda and the White Horse Pub

 

St George was at the opposite end of the islands from the King's Wharf and we stopped there for a visit and lunch.

 

I think this thing in the photo below might have been a dunking stool but I have been wrong before.

Judith had a Bermuda Cobb Salad

I had Fish & Chips. It was the best tasting fried fish I have ever had!

ZOWIE! I had a Rum Swizzle and I was really good! It may have become my new personal "Official Drink."

It all looks fabulously amazing and Judith looks like she's feeling so much better! Hope her illin' doesn't return when you head to Nassau.

 

I'm angry at myself for not remembering your sail away today. :(

The roads on the Bermuda Islands are up & down and twisty-turny but the entire island it beautiful.

 

All of the homes, buildings, and vehicles are well maintained.

 

Dennis, our Taxi Owner/Driver told us he has to have his taxi inspected annually and it won't pass if it has even a scratch on the body.

The Turtle Sanctuary

 

There was a school group there and they were feeding lettuce to the turtles as we arrived.

Marine Stop Lights For Boats

 

The bridge was too narrow for two boats to pass so they put up stop lights.

 

Note the current flowing under the bridge.

Love the White Horse. We had lunch the last time we were there and I also had a rum swizzle (yum). We have two friends who were navy pilots and stationed there 20+ years ago with their families and they told us we had to go to the White Horse. We took the ferry to Hamilton and then a bus to St. George and ate out on the patio. Nice!
