Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Believe it or not, this month marks the 25th anniversary of the day on which Ol’ Robbo and Mrs. R were first manacled together.

In celebration, we are going to spend three nights in Bermuda, to which island neither of us has been before.

There’s a particular reason for this choice of destination: We had wanted to go to Bermuda for our honeymoon.  Only in those days, just out of law school in the midst of a legal market collapse, Ol’ Robbo couldn’t possibly afford it.  Plus, my phobia about flying back then was so bad that I really didn’t think it would be a good basis on which to start our life journey together.  So we made other plans.

Things are much different now, twenty-five years later.  We have the readies, and although I’ll never actually enjoy flying, I’ve got my fears sufficiently under control through experience that we’ll be fine on the plane.

So we’re looking on this jaunt as a sort of deferred gratification.

Anyhoo, if any friend of the decanter has inside information on things to do and see in Bermuda, I’d be grateful for the information.  We’re absolutely solid for accommodations, but suggestions regarding food and drink, together with touristy activities, would be most appreciated.

Of course, I’ll tell you all about it (mostly) when we get back.

UPDATE: Thankee, friends, for the well-wishes and pro-tips.  Curiously enough, when I asked Mrs. R this evening what she thought she might like to do while we’re there, she said that she’s so worn out that she really just wants to spend a lot of time loafing on the beach. (We’re staying right on it.  I believe you might even be able to get drinks brought to you on the sand.)  Indeed, she even talked about what books she might like to bring with her.

Twist. My. Arm.
