For me, there is a long list of favorite things:
- the swoon worthy uniform of short pants and tall socks,
- lovely pink sand beaches with the bluest water,
- amazing fish chowder with sherry peppers sauce,
- swizzles and dark 'n stormys, galore!
- and of course the Bermudian Accent, which I have yet to perfect: a mix between British, Caribbean, Jamaican, and just all around goodness (literally, the Bermudians are just good people).
The list of course goes on... But aside from my own personal draws, there is a history that brings many tourists to the island, starting with is the chance to see the world's smallest drawbridge:
Another popular attraction is the Unfinished Church:
When the original St. Peter's Church, dating back to 1620, was destroyed by a storm circa 1874, construction started up the hill on a new church in a new location. Well, the locals were not keen on a replacement and preferred to put all efforts towards restoring the original, which had already survived tough times and patchwork before. So, shortly after breaking ground on the new church, the work efforts were discontinued, but the landmark of the Unfinished Church still stands today.
The view from Gibb's Lighthouse is spectacular. It's certainly worth the climb up...
