Dockyard, BDA

A visit to the Royal Naval Dockyard in Bermuda is a step back into history with all the splendors of the present. 

Whether it be the shops, the food, or the ferry, whatever brings you to dockyard, the views will not disappoint. 

Dockyard is filled with beautiful boats:

And a fine looking boat ramp:

Being stationed on the western tip of the island, Dockyard is best known as the place to catch the Ferry to the city of Hamilton or St. George's.

While in Dockyard, you can't miss the Royal Naval Fort stationed by the Brits in World War I and the Americans in World War II. Built around 1870 and still standing proud on the highest hill, it is quite a sight, if only from afar.

For drinks and eats, or while waiting for a ferry, we like to visit The Frog and Onion:

Try the beer sampler:

Then order up your favorite with a classic British pie (the fish chowder is delicious too!):

Dessert is right next door at the Bermuda Rum Cake Company where you can sample each and every cake, hot and fresh out of the oven. Marvel at the glassblowers as you taste away.

And don't be surprised if you happen to see a rooster or two wandering around...
