Bermuda: Day 1 (Part 2)

April 22, 2013

While we found it challenging to leave the pool at Elbow Beach, Bermuda, a Kiwi Collection recommended hotel, we found it even more challenging to not spend the remaining hours of light by its intoxicatingly beautiful beach and thus we headed back there.  Plus, all of the fun we had been having in the sun left us famished and parched and the hotel has a beachside restaurant.

When in Bermuda, it is absolutely necessary to sample the legendary national drink: the Rum Swizzle.  This delicious mix of rums paired with fruit juices and sweeteners is the perfect libation for sharing and irresistible to locals and tourists alike.  We found that it went down too smoothly and that it is quite potent, so we decided to soak up some of the alcohol with what else other than delicious fried food.  Bermudians say, “You swizzle in and you swagger out.”  We can definitely attest to that after consuming two pitchers!

Then we went for another leisurely stroll by the ocean.  Along the way we kept exclaiming to each other how we both thought that Bermuda was one of the best kept travel secrets.

We did not encounter many people during our walk, but the ones that we did always greeted us and most struck up a friendly conversation.  Everyone agreed that Bermuda was a Paradise.  As the sun began to set, we already started to plan our next trip back!

We could not wait to see even more pink sand beaches the next day.

      Isn’t it amazing??? It’s a color that deserves its own name! And yes, depending on where you have it, the fruit juice used changes. I like the peach ones the best. It’s BEYOND delicious!

    I’m much more of a long-time lurker to your site, but I feel like commenting today! *stops being shy* These photos — as with ALL of your photos — are so beautiful and just make me want to be there! And of course, your writing complements that feeling so much!

    I think I just figured out the mystery of the Bermuda triangle from looking at these amazing pictures. Point one the beach, point two the pool, point three the bar and the rum swizzle: then repeat. You are now stuck in the Bermuda triangle.

    Holy moly – is there anything wrong with that place? It looks incredible! Also, I think I would have been singing Bermuda… Bahamas… come on pretty mama the ENTIRE time. It wouldn’t have been annoying at all 😉
