In Bermuda, There’s More to Life Than the 35th America’s Cup…

We watched this group of fishermen stalk a large school of fish the other morning. They managed to get their nets around them and get a tremendous haul - all within about 2 hours.

Looking back through my recent posts, it looks like there isn’t anything going on, but the America’s Cup Races. We’re spending a lot of time watching the races and Armchair Quarterbacking the performances, but we still have plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the beauty of Bermuda.

We’ve witnessed some spectacular sunsets and sunrises while at anchor.

After Saturday’s Race, we took a “booze cruise” around the Great Sound and Hamilton Harbor.Below are a few pictures from the cruise…

And just in case you were looking for race pictures…

    1. It really is an amazing place and we have enjoyed the races. We saw Oracle out sailing this morning. Hopefully they’ve figured out how to go as fast as New Zealand!!
