Wedding Crashers: Bermuda Style

Today I decided to relax at the hotel all day since the trip is winding down and I feel like I’ve been busy all week going to see different areas of Bermuda. I mostly explored the caves under the hotel again, and I also fed the fish by the pagoda and I was finally able to see my first parrotfish!

If you can tell, his lips are green colored, as all parrotfish do, so it looks like he’s wearing lipstick 🙂

After feeding the fish t I relaxed at the beach for a couple of hours and then I decided to join my parents on a scavenger hunt that was provided by the Breast Cancer Society of Bermuda, and we were able to see different parts of town near the hotel we didn’t get to see before. And the most exciting part was that I was finally able to find the secret Blue Lagoon where you can go cliff jumping!

As I was running down the stairs from my hotel room to catch up with my parents to go to lunch, I almost crashed right into a bride standing at the bottom of the winding staircase! I was mortified to say the least as the bride, and all her bridesmaids turn around and see me lose my balance a bit to catch myself from falling onto her dress. As her train took up the entire stair with, all I could do is sit on the stairs and wait for her procession to start. The ceremony took place in the back of the hotel, looking out onto the water, and seriously made me consider having a future wedding there. All the groomsmen and some wedding guests, wore the classic Bermuda shorts in different colors, and the bridesmaids wore a beautiful beige colored dress. After the ceremony moved on to the outdoor reception, I managed to take a picture of my parents under the ceremony arch, and they decided to act out like they were getting married again which was hysterical. At the end of the day I relaxed at the beach again, reflecting on my trip, and sad that tomorrow will be my last day in Bermuda.
