Bermuda…Winter Paradise?

After the Storm....

Bermuda is often referred to as Paradise and whilst it is pretty fabulous, of course, it is not perfect. We have our problems socially, insectually (my new word)¬†and even weather-wise. I point this out to settle the bets around the globe….We do have nasty weather too and this is just such a week. At present several sporting events have had to be cancelled because of gale-force winds. Well the winds knocked down the tents wherein all the spectators (myself included) would sit around and eat and drink into oblivion. (OK so I don’t drink at all but I do tend to eat rather more than I ought, at such times) We have Rugby Players from all over the world here and they cannot play! Can you imagine that??!!! No wonder we have social problems! Anyone who has ever met a real Rugby player must know that they LOVE to party and drink till they drop.

Also at least twice a day, either my beloved husband or I must go on a walk-a-about to check for downed banana trees, fallen avocados and maybe even hoist any number of items out of the pool. The wind is treacherous! I say this to give comfort to those of you who have already had to shovel snow and gather autumn leaves and look forward to frightful winter blizzards. At least you can play in the snow. OK so my tongue is deep into my cheek here but I simply must address certain uncomfortable situations of living on this “Rock”.

I pause now to kiss my husband farewell as he heads out for his daily walk/run with his former secretary. They are bravely facing all the ugly elements and may even get wet on their journey. I am wildly attracted to him right now, in his cute little shorts….. brb

so brave...my HERO!

Since I have not figured out how to make the photos stay in the order I have placed them, I shall just continue here. The inclement weather has got my brain all befuddled…..

anyway…the rest of my repertoire will be best explained in the following photos. YES, I went out into the storm to photograph these… You will see just a few of the avocados we have had to gather from last night’s fury as well as a few bananas. You will also note that there are some hardy little fellas still on their trees. Bravo!

It should also be noted that our usual clean and pristine pool is a mess today. Again, I fault the weather and oh yeah the pool guy doesn’t come till Thursday.

this mornings' gatherings

Have a lovely day whatever you must face……until tomorrow……I bid you adieu.
