Bermuda, Jamaica, ooo I want to take you
The weekend was far too short, even though we were in Bermuda from Friday afternoon until Monday morning--we left Boston at 7:30 Friday morning, and flew to Bermuda via Philly. The flight was fine and we got to the hotel around 2:00--plenty of time to relax. the weather was fine--breezy, but in the 60's for most of the weekend. The water was too cold to swim (besides, there was no beach to speak of--washed away by a storm, and it needed another one to wash it back).
The hotel had a nice pool, though, and since the plan was mainly to hang out and do nothing, that was enough. The hotel was a bit far from everything--and on top of which, everything closes at 5:00 on Saturdays, and not much opens on Sundays, so on Friday we took a bus to the grocery store to stock up. Fortunately, there was a kitchenette in the room, so we could eat most of our meals there; Bermuda is seriously expensive. We did have dinner at the hotel one night--rockfish, which was new for both of us, although we eat a lot of fish. DH likes to fish, and he keeps the freezer pretty well stocked.
I managed to get fairly sunburned, despite knowing better and warnings from DH; it's fading, though, and doesn't hurt any more. I also managed to get some knitting done--the Large Rectangle is getting longer and longer--I'm up to 21 repeats--but, other than length, it looks the same as it did in the last post.
We flew back Monday morning--you get to clear customs in Bermuda, which made the stop in JFK much more pleasant than I was expecting. We also have a tendency to pack as lightly as possible; unless we're going to be gone for more than two weeks, we aim for carry-on only.
Now we're back in Boston, where it's snowing. *sigh*
