Trans-Atlantic 2008  -   Bermuda

Today Bermuda is primarily a financial centre, with a busy tourist trade and many retirees.  Until the late 20th century it was a maritime centre, and pretty much a British Naval base. 

There is still evidence of the 300 years of significance in the days of sail in the main "clock" tower that shows wind direction in open water to the those in the sheltered harbour.

We anchored in St Georges, a delightful village on the shores of a natural harbour at the East end.

There was lots of room for playing around, and a good bar to watch some Churchill Cup rugby.

We enjoyed looking around the tiny rural roads with lots of flowers, but neglected to take photographs.

Also had a couple of good scuba dives in the coral reefs.
