Sea Glass Beach at Alexandra Battery Park – St. George’s Parish, Bermuda

Here is the second installment of pictures from our recent family trip to beautiful Bermuda. There are a lot of photos in this set from our excursion to Alexandra Battery Park for Julies sea glass collecting adventure. I also had a chance to capture Dylan being himself in the small surf at the sea glass beach without fear of him being pulled away by the currents. We finished off the afternoon with lunch and pool time at the beach club and then a golf cart ride home for dinner and a nice quite evening. I’ll post some videos from our trip later after I have a chance to edit them.

“Dylan and his smiley face Sand Man” – Tucker’s Point Beach Club, Bermuda

For our end of summer Bermuda trip this year we decided to make it a family retreat and invited the entire Bedford clan to join us for the week. It was a nice week of rest and relaxation and some very nice dinners out on the town. On the down side, Dylan got an ear infection the day before our trip which we ended up having to take him to the hospital for shortly after arriving on the island. Trying to keep a 5 year old out of the pool with an ear infection is a no win situation. And then to make things worse, Julie picked up a stomach bug the second day of our trip and spent much of the week in bed.

This was not a super fun trip for all of us this time around, but we have had some great luck traveling to the island in the past 10 years, so I guess we where due for one. We where able to salvage our last two days and got Julie out to go sea glass hunting on the North side of the island at Alexandra Battery Beach which is where the Deliverance was built and launched from back in 1610 heading for Virginia and captained by Admiral Sir George Somers. I love Bermuda… there is just so much history there that you cant over look.

As promised, here are a couple of home movies from our late spring trip to Bermuda. The first video features Dylan playing in the surf and swinging glow sticks during dinner at the Beach Club barbecue. The second video features Uncle Mike as he helps out with the daily 12 o’clock noon wench dunking in St. Georges Square.

Doug, Dylan and uncle Mike ready to snorkel the reef – Castle Island, Bermuda

This is the second installment of pictures from our June trip to Bermuda. We took uncle Mike with us on this trip to help out with Dylan and also to give him a little break from the world. It was a real treat having Mike along and we did a lot more in the way of activities than I think we would have done had he not been there. Mike was also a big help in teaching Dylan how to snorkel for the first time out at Castle Island reef. Thanks uncle Mike… we hope you enjoy the photos!

Dylan and Uncle Mike on top of Tucker’s Point Tower – Tucker’s Point Club, Bermuda

We didn’t plan a lot of travel this summer, but our annual spring and fall trips to Bermuda are a given. We decided to wait until Dylan was out of school to make our first trip, so it would be June this year. A little closer to summer than normal for us, it would still turn out to be a nice week weather wise. This year we invited my brother Mike to join us for the week and (needing a vacation badly) he excepted! We had a great week of sight seeing, boating, golfing, snorkeling, a beach barbecue, a ‘winch dunking’, a tour of the Crystal Caves and tons of fun at the beach club and swimming pools. Mike and I got to play a couple rounds of golf and we took Dylan to Castle Island for his first experience at snorkeling on the reef. He did great for a 5 year old in open water! We look forward to taking Uncle Mike back with us again in the future… he was a huge help and a lot of fun for Dylan to hang out with.

11/30/2014 – “The South Seas Island Resort” – Captiva Island, Florida

Here is a video from our Thanksgiving holiday trip to South Seas Island Resort in Captiva, Florida. This is a semi annual trip for the family and it’s always a lot of fun to catch up with everyone in the warmth of South Florida. Dylan was a little disappointed this year as the water temps where a little on the cool side! But he did brave the big community swimming pools despite the cooler than normal temperatures.

“One of the main swimming pools” – South Seas Island Resort – Captiva Island, Florida.

This year we expected to spend Thanksgiving in Chicago for a wedding, but it didn’t pan out. So instead we all decided to spend Thanksgiving on Captiva Island with Julie’s family as we have done many times in the past. It was nice getting together with the family and celebrating the holiday in a nice warm place even if the water was a little on the cold side. Here are a couple of photos from the trip… enjoy!

09/16/2014 – “Dylan enjoying a day at the kids pool” – Tucker’s Point Beach Club

As promised, here are a couple of home movies from our recent trip to Bermuda with the grand parents. I’ve started to do a lot more video on our trips now that I have a newer more powerful video editing software at my disposal. I also plan to create a new platform on my website for showing off my videos in my travel/dive trip section… more on that later.

“Looking out over Tucker’s Point private beach” – Tucker’s Point Beach Club, Bermuda.

We changed things up a little for our annual end of summer Bermuda trip this year. My parents, even they travel a lot, have never been to Bermuda, so Julie and I thought it would be nice to have them accompany us and Dylan for a week of fun in the sun. What made this trip even better was having Julie’s parents there at the same time so Dylan could enjoy all the grand parents at once. I think everyone had a very nice time and the grand parents got to enjoy some very special quality time with their favorite grand son… Dylan.
