Oh boy, it’s been awhile hasn’t it? I’m guessing every blogger gets caught not blogging eventually, days later posting lame excuses why he or she hasn’t been updating his or her readers about what’s seemingly been so very important. Consider it my turn. Apologies dear reader, but part of what makes living in Bermuda so wonderful is entertaining all the wonderful people that can’t wait to visit you. And so ends five days of tour guiding, beach lazing, and rum swizzling with family—indeed some of the most gut-bustlingly fun times I’ve had in Bermuda since moving here in May. The best of the bunch? A six-hour day sail on my new favorite catamaran Ana Luna, a 45-foot French-made beauty with towering orange, red, and blue sails (that’s me enjoying a rum swizzle on the trampoline). Owned by Captain Nathan Worswick and booked through his company, Ana Luna Adventures, the boat sailed from Grotto Bay Beach Resort near St. George around the eastern tip of Bermuda. We moored in Castle Harbor for a snorkel on one of the island’s ubiquitous wrecks, then eventually sailed home in style, cameras in hand and Miles Davis on the radio. It was the perfect end to a perfect visit and certainly a better excuse for not writing than, “I lost my internet connection.” Don’t you agree? So stay tuned for more to come and consider your daily dish from paradise back in business.
