Back from Bermuda

K.C., Lilly, & I spent last week in Bermuda. It was our first real family vacation, so we were really excited. We took a cruise on the Norwegian Majesty, which docked for about 3.5 days in St. George's.

The weather wasn't the most cooperative - only one day of rain, but lots of clouds. Despite having my light tackle fishing trip canceled due to high winds, we did do a lot of activities, including a day at the beach.

Day 1 - Arrival & aforementioned beach day at Tobacco Bay

Day 2 - Lots of running around ~ Royal Naval Dockyard, a stop in Hamilton, and RAIN!

Day 3 - Tour of the Crystal Caves and Bermuda National Aquarium & Zoo. Dusk hike out to Fort St. Catherine

Day 4 - Carriage ride around St. George's & Departure

Although not the biggest and grandest of boats, the Majesty served it purpose of restaurant & hotel. Lilly was especially enthusiastic about the onboard "Kid's Camp" and also picked up a neat new trick at dinner.


  1. Oh what a princess. Lilly is too cute. You have a beautiful family and are a lucky man. Hope you got a little time for snorkling. You don't get many chances to do that in Pennsylvania so you have to take them when you can.


  2. Thanks Mark. Lilly is a princess, and alas she knows it!

    I love snorkeling, but didn't get to this time (was helping Lilly swim). I've done it before in Tobacco Bay and it's great - very underrated.

    Unfortunately my wife got a little too close for comfort to a giant grouper once off the FL Keys, not sure if I could get her to go again!

  3. Thanks for sharing your trip with us. I envy the fact that you were able to find time to get away and spend a special time with your family. Looks like your daughter and my granddaughter (The Bird) have a lot in common.
