My Video – Leaving Hamilton By Ferry To Go Back To The Cruise Ship

In this video that I made, you will see Hamilton as viewed from onboard the ferry that we took back to the cruise ship.  I don’t like my voice at all in this video, but decided to just go ahead and leave it in.  Sometimes, I use Garage Band to do an introduction to my video, but this time I left it all natural – my voice as it was on that day.  Isn’t it funny how we often don’t like to hear our own voices whether it’s on the telephone answering machine, or on video?

Hamilton is very picturesque.  I hope you enjoy the video!

My Video – Enchantment Of The Seas to Bermuda – Hamilton (Part One)

Hamilton, Bermuda is a very colorful place.  You will marvel at all the colors – be it the colors of the homes or of the businesses in downtown Hamilton.  In my video that I made just two days ago, you will see our taxi driver and hear an authentic Bermudian accent, and you will see as we go past the Clock Tower Mall in Kings Wharf.  Then you’ll see Gibbs Lighthouse, as well as many colorful Bermudian buildings and homes along the way.  You will then see downtown Hamilton, and the Hamilton Ferry Building.

Thank you for watching my video, and please don’t forget to press “like” on You Tube – if you like it!  I would appreciate it.

Bermuda – Day 2 – Some Photographs

Well, no matter what…..you can’t be in Bermuda and not see it (my previous post will explain why I would say that).  Therefore, after a relatively laid-back morning (and I would not have done this if I had been okay) – we got off the cruise ship at around 12:30 pm.  I knew I could not walk around a lot.  Therefore, I glanced at the Visitor Information board (shown below) and the prices seemed to be very reasonable, however, I did not have the ability to be adventurous as usual.

Therefore, I talked to a taxi driver, and took the first taxi after the driver told me he would give us a two hour tour of the main sights, and beaches and drop us off in Hamilton at the ferry terminal for $40.  I could have paid $24 (since Chandi had stayed behind at the Adventure Ocean kids camp for the day) – one adult day pass was $12 and two kids passes were $6 each, but the convenience of not waiting and not knowing how much I would have to walk made the answer in my mind very clear, it had to be the taxi.

I took some of these pictures from inside the taxi, I liked all the bright colors:

It was after this point, that we saw the two more beaches other than Snorkel Beach.  However, I am going to include them in my next post, and will go on to show you some pictures of Hamilton, which is the capital of Bermuda.

Who’d have believed it?  Good old Marks & Spencer’s – all the way from the UK – is now here in Bermuda!  This certainly brought back memories!

Oh, my gosh!  I can’t believe it……these things are everywhere I go!  I can’t seem to escape them now.

But, I passed by them with Flying Colors!  Notice, how the spelling of colors is “colours” as spelt by the Brits, and also how I used to spell this word many years ago.

We got into a ferry at around 5:30 pm to take us back to the cruise ship.  It cost $4 for my ticket one-way, and $2 each for the kids.  This is a little of what I saw from the ferry:

Just had to take this picture as we got back into Kings Wharf to remind me of where we had just been today.

That evening as my kids were planning on going bungee jumping, I realized that I could get some photos of Kings Wharf right from the ship, these are the pictures:

Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines held an event over at Kings Wharf in the evening today called “Destination Dockyard Festival” at the Royal Naval Dockyard from 7:30 – 10:00 PM.  However, I could not make it back off the ship – I was tired and my ankles would not allow for any more walking.

So even though, I had been feeling pain with every step, and had been wondering as I lay in my cabin last night as to what was going to happen in the next few days – some of these questions could not help but flash in my head:  Would I be able to get off the cruise ship?  Would I be able to see more of Bermuda?  Would my kids have to enjoy three more days on the cruise ship on their own, and go around by themselves?  I had persevered, and made it through.  I had seen the pink sand beaches of Bermuda (see the next post) and even though I hadn’t seen all that I wanted to see, and feel sad that I did not walk on the sands of Horseshoe Bay Beach as I had on Warwick Long Bay, I feel happy that I did the best that I could – considering the circumstances.  I hope you enjoyed my post, and thank you for reading it.
