10 days in Bermuda…priceless

Renee and Rima woke early this morning and hit the railway trail for a stroll. The major objective for today was to repack and ship the 400+ pounds of equipment back to the United States. We worked on the packing over breakfast, and Annie showed up with the truck at 10:30. Once loaded, we journeyed to FedEx to ship our gear. It was reassuring to arrive at FedEx here in Bermuda where they know that the USA is a country and that we do NOT want this to go ground service (see previous updates!). In fact, the whole process took only 25 minutes instead of the 3 hours it took in Orlando…but in all fairness, the paperwork required for customs was minimal this time around.

Once that was accomplished, we piled in Annie’s car (thanks Jack!!) and headed for the beaches along the south shore. Wow…the scenery was absolutely amazing! We visited Jobson’s Cove, Warwick Long Bay, Horseshoe Bay, and spent some time just walking on the beach and searching in the tide pools. Bermuda’s famous pink sand is a beautiful contrast to the deep blue waters offshore. It was difficult to leave…but as evening drew near, we headed back to the aquarium for a meeting to discuss future project objectives, collaborations, and needs.

Our day ended with a lovely barbeque chicken dinner at Pam and Gil’s house. The food was delicious, and it was nice to all be together one last time. It is our last day in Bermuda, and we are leaving here with fond memories of a wonderful expedition.
