I guess I share share the highlights of our trip.
The RoomThere's nothing like a good relaxing hotel room. I didn't plan to spend too much time in there but a comfy bed is a must. Hubby and I have a thing with out hotel room numbers. I'm not sure why but it started with our first overnight trip together and we kept it going. We can tell you the room numbers from every hotel (of major trips) we've stayed in. I also have the room keys for those rooms.
When on an island, you can't really go wrong with an amazing view wherever you are. And literally wherever we were we had an amazing view.
The foodSeriously, to die for. I had most of our meals planned out in advance. I actually had no choice because some of the restaurants at our resort require reservations. but I didn't have a bad meal here. I'm seriously craving a pink lady right now.
We did get to visit a few tourists spots like the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse and the Navel Dockyard.
The relaxationI was lucky enough to spend the afternoon at the resort's spa. It was amazing! I haven't been to the spa in so long even though it's one of my favorite things to do. I did indulge in the prenatal massage and it was the best experience ever. My masseuse was also pregnant so she understood my 'accommodating a growing baby' pains. Additionally, the whole point of me and hubby going was to relax so we did lots of it together. One of my favorite parts was sitting out on the spa pool deck just enjoying being there.
The celebrationWe were able to witness the island's annual Bermuda Day celebration. It was an amazing celebration to be apart of. You can see in the background of some of the images canopy tents set up. The citizens camp out their spots for days hoping to get the best view possible.They have elaborate set ups of food, music, and comfy chairs. The Bermuda tourism board sets up a visitors tent right next to the grand stand and serve snacks and drinks. It was so nice of them cause they know we wouldn't get a spot otherwise. I hope we make it back for another Bermuda Day in the future.
We don't have an international cell phone plan so we were restricted to communication only via a wireless network. it sucked but I think we were mutually happy that we had to be unplugged. I couldn't wait to hook up to the hotel's wireless to make sure my son was ok. I was able to text my parents to let them know we had landed safely and all was well. Mid trip I tried to FaceTime my son but my parents wouldn't let me for fear that it would get him all riled up. I'm never agreeing to that again. Although I'm over reacting because not only did he survive but he did well.
