There’s an epic tale of a singing mermaid longing to live on land happily ever after with her dark haired, prince.

This is a tale of an ocean loving queen walking the Earth in confidence, living life by her own rules – what evil sea witch? She’s stumbled a few times to find her way and has even kissed a few frogs, coming to the conclusion that her king survived that shipwreck and the stars in their galaxies will align. But, that won’t complete her story…

 

 

Half Time: Summer ’17

Summer is half way over and it’s been quite eventful. Take a look at my photo gallery to get the picture.

America’s Cup Bermuda

What’s the America’s Cup? That’s the same question I had in 2014 when Bermuda was announced as the location for its 35th World Series event which took place this summer. For over 150 years, international sailing teams have been competing for possession of the exclusive Americas Cup trophy – an immaculate figure made of silver which isn’t to be touched by bare hands. It travels in its own Luis Vuitton case and is normally handled with care by two guards wearing white gloves.

 

The America’s Cup Village (AC) opened up in June where hundreds of spectators watched a series of sailing regattas for about one month, while participating in some of the attractions the village had to offer. There were specially themed days like women’s day, and concerts featuring artists like NeYo and Kes. The event was covered nationally by NBC Sports.

My time in the AC village was well spent – visiting the Bermuda tourism booth where I graciously received a Rum Swizzle flavored lip balm, sitting comfortably under an umbrella on an extremely comfortable bean bag chair on blue turf and enjoying a cool bubbly beverage at the Moet bar.

In the end, Oracle TeamUSA was defeated by Team New Zealand – where the trophy finds its new home. For more about the AC and coverage in Bermuda visit https://www.americascup.com/en/home.html

 

Cricket

On Saturday, Bailey’s Bay and St. David’s battled on the cricket field in what one would consider to be the semi-finals of the County Game series. Teams representing different areas of Bermuda play in matches throughout the Summer for possesion of the championship cup. 

I’m not a cricket expert in fact, I rarely watch the sport, but this game was a good one with St. David’s pulling through for the win from being behind by about 26 runs. 

The games are also a social experience with plenty spectators, food and music.
