To celebrate our 25th Anniversary we stayed at Nine Beaches Resort at the Daniels Head area of southwest Bermuda.  Bermuda is a British Island Territory of 71,000 people. We had our own small cabana (Photo#1) on the coast with a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean from our bed. The resort had nine private beaches or coves. 

We enjoyed free breakfast every morning at the resort restaurant overlooking the swimming pool and ocean. We enjoyed all of the water sports -swimming, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling & standup paddle boarding.  This was my first attempt at paddle boarding and I tried close to 40 times and finally stood and got my balance on the board. Rosie & I bicycled on the Railway Trail to a Gibbs Hill Lighthouse and crossed the World’s Smallest Drawbridge. One day we took a ferry over to the capital city of Hamilton and enjoyed a street fair sampling some local food. At one booth I tried to get my hair braided so as to look like one of the locals but I failed miserably due to lack of hair. Enjoyed one dinner at the Royal Navy Dockyard Restaurant. Gasoline here was $8.00 per gallon.
