The skyline in New York is always great to see along with the Statue of Liberty but today, the haze kept us from getting the best view. So, Jennifer and I settled in for a sailaway movie at the Movie Under the Stars. Much to our surprise, sailaway also gave us an up close view of the bridge just above the movie screen as we sailed under it.
Our first stop was Bermuda. This would be my 3rd time there but never with Bob. ;( Our ship docked at Heritage Wharf at the Naval Dockyard. Since we didn't make the cut for the tour, we decided to walk around the Dockyard and over to a beach I had heard about. Snorkel Beach is a small beach with an entrance fee of $5 pp but very nice. They had snorkel rental, jet skis, food, chairs, etc.. all for a fee. We didn't have our swimsuits on so we checked out the beach, then shopped and headed back to the ship.
While in port in Bermuda, the RCCL Explorer of the Seas was sitting next to us. What a great looking ship. In the below photo, you can see her as she sailed around the island of Bermuda just in front of us. Stunning to watch.
An interesting thing I found this time was an exhibit for the Mercury Spaceship that splashed down just in the ocean off of Grand Turk. This space ship was piloted by John Glenn who orbited the earth three times before splashing down on Feb 20th, 1962. Everyone was glued to their televisions and radios as this major event in history took place. And to think, it was right off of beautiful Grand Turk.
