A Day of Two Halves
30.09.2013 27 °C
We had arranged to meet Sharon and Neil for an early morning walk along the old railway line but we were woken up to the sound of thunder and flashes of lightning. The rain was extreme so walking was given a miss in favour of breakfast in our apartment. We did pancakes with bacon for Sharon, Neil and Dad while we had pancakes with bananas and maple syrup.
The rain did ease off during the morning and just before midday we headed downstairs to bid farewell to Sharon and Neil. It was so sad to see them leave as we had enjoyed being with them so much.
To cheer ourselves up we caught the bus to Hamilton and headed first to the Bermuda National Art Gallery. We happily spent over an hour there looking at works by both amateur and professional artists. Some of the local art work was for sale at a competitive price and was very impressive.
We decided to get a light sushi lunch at Beluga which is a casual looking restaurant located in the basement of a shopping mall. The sushi though was very impressive and was prepared behind a sushi counter by authentic Japanese chefs.
The sun was certainly back and after lunch we did some shopping along Front Street where Grant and Dad treated themselves to a few purchases while I carried their bags! We had a quick stop at Miles Supermarket to buy some deli items from their wonderful shop.
We returned to Watford Bridge on the ferry and enjoyed a casual dinner at the apartment soaking up the amazing views on the balcony for the last evening.
