Market Friday: Bermuda's Hidden Charms


IMG_3448.JPG


Hidden charms. Every place has them, and sometimes it is up to you to discover them, there are times you must uncover them. There are times you don't even know what you are looking for, but, the moment you see it, you will know its name. The ordinary reveals the charms of old. Take your time to explore, slow down and breathe deep. We've only just begun. Welcome to #MarketFriday, where we take a few moments and give it to Bermuda. We have time, there are no agendas and we will be late for nothing. We are currently at Horeshoe beach, one of my favorite stretches of sea and sand. Slow down, you are moving too fast.

First a little sun and shine. Always. Vitamin D, if you must be specific. See the man on top of the rocks? Yes. The charm of the view from there. I have to admit, you can see forever from up there. Perhaps a little bit further. Three days was all I could spare, but, enough for me to be grateful for the time and a place with such beauty. Always be grateful, no matter how big or how small. The beaches of Bermuda are free, all of them. They are all public nd so they pass that on to the tourists. The most you get charged is for the taxi to get there, unless you take the bus. I love taking public transportation, either the water taxi or bus. It is always more colorful with different people. It's a cultural thing. I like to jump right in and make it my country.

Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) Join me as we share our markets across the globe. I always look forward to seeing what you send me! It is amazing to see the different markets and cultures of our friends here on Hive.

Above is the Royal Navy Dockyards. If you come to Bermuda by cruise ship, you will most likely tender here. It is a perfect place to park all the ships. I came by plane, so I flew into the capital, Hamilton. It is the commercial hub for the island and the center of the shipping trade. If I want a parade, street fair or any kind of excitemnt, I jump the water taxi from the Shipyard and it takes me right downtown Bermuda. It is 23.5 km or 37 minutes by water taxi/ferry. Above is Oracle USA! Those were fun days!

Downtown Hamilton is where all the street fairs, parties and events happen. I went into crystal cave to check out their stalagtites and stalagmites. Have you ever been in a cave like this? The cave is approximately 500 meters long, and 62 meters deep. The lower 19–20 m of the cave are below water level. Giant pools of water.

Crystal and Fantasy Cave, 8 Crystal Caves Road, Hamilton Parish CR 04, Bermuda

IMG_3156.JPG


This is at the bottom of the cave and you can clearly see the large pools of water at the bottom.I was surprised at the number of stalagtites and stalagmites that were broken off. I thought it was a lot of money for the small cave, however there are so many free things in Bermuda, I was fine with paying it.


0P2A8136.JPG


This is Victoria Park, a public park in the capital of Hamilton. It is frequently used as an entertainment venue, holding free concerts and other events here. It is a beautiful park and no matter what time of the year I go, it is planted with seasonal beauty.


IMG_3197 mf.JPG


Queen Street, Hamilton! I went in search of the post office, just so I could mail off my postcards. Don't judge. Anyone who knows me understands my need to send postcard to those that never get away. They still love to travel through postcards, enjoying the differnt ones I send. It's cheap fun and always appreciated, so, yes, I am probably the only one in the world who sends postcards. I am good with that. The cost is $0.70 cents to send a postcard to the US. As a note, if I want to send one to Bermuda from the US, it is $1.20.


IMG_3196 mf.JPG


This was such a fun bookstore, it had bood from all over the world and chairs in corners with table to put your cuppa. Such a perfect world. Now this is a hidden treasure to me. Bookstores like this are disappearing, little by little. I still have a few favorites, this being one of them. :)) The owners are so amazing. If you sit there for two hours or ten, they never make you feel like you are overstaying your welcome. Le sigh. I love this place.


IMG_3201 mf.JPG


I can never get enough of the gentle calm that washes over my body while I am here. It may be a country away from my own, but, it feels like home. All is calm, all is right.


IMG_3300 mf.JPG


The street art is fun and all of the public restrooms are covered in murals. Happy, yes? Nothing that will set off the art world, but, it is pleasant to look at. Great job, Bermuda! Way to pretty up the place.


IMG_3188 MF.JPG


Bermuda is a pleasant place to spend some time. The people are nice, the crime is moderate to low, with the rise coming in the last three years, which was affected by no tourism and covid. I am pretty sure it is much the same with the rest of the world, but, this surprised me as it was so insulated with no crime. I guess it isn't bulletproof after all. Her is hoping that our world will get back on track soon. We all need it to happen.

Once part of a British Royal Navy outpost, Bermuda's Clocktower Mall is now one of the island's retail destinations. It still has so much of its old world charm and even has cobblestoned floors throughout the mall.

Please leave the link to your post here so it can easily be found by others. It helps you and me to have them in one place. Where else can you take such a quick trip around the globe? Thank you so much for joining us!! ❤

Above: This is how the pink sand on the beaches gets made. A hidden charm for sure!! Pink sand beaches get their color from thousands of broken coral pieces, shells, and calcium carbonate materials left behind by foraminifera (tiny sea creatures with red and pink shells) that live in nearby coral reefs.source

And just like that, this post is done. I hope you had a good time and learned a little something new. As always, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit, and just remember, #MarketFriday loves you! Thank you for supporting the challenge! Have a most fabulous day! Cheers!!

As always, there must be flowers to color my world. #alwaysaflower

I almost caught the moment you released your post. I'm sorry I wasn't more specific, because I suspected it must have appeared.
A joy, a trip through Bermuda! Beaches and waters more beautiful than the sky. I think it goes without saying that the first photo is my favorite...

Slow down, you are moving too fast.

That's right, enthusiasm makes us forget to breathe.
A summer story, looking at your blog makes me feel on vacation there, even though my only connection to Bermuda is the pants I wear all summer.

I enjoy the images, your expressive photos. I'll be back to read more about your vacation.
Now I'm only in the middle of writing my post, I wasn't inspired and chose something hard for myself.

Do you remember I made a bet? Whoever reads the other's post first. I read it first, and you won! I lost by non-presentation, but I will definitely post by the end of the day.

Thanks, Denise, for taking us to such beautiful places and reminding us that sometimes we move too fast!

Haha! No way! You win!! My computer wouldn't restart last night and so, #MarketFriday almost wasn't born. Ha! It has taken a dislike to Thursday nights and gives me a problem, almost weekly.

Shouldn't this make me do it earlier and schedule it?

One would think. YOu chose something hard? What is wrong with you!? Even I chose something easy, something I did a few weeks ago before the water damaged my house.

I like Bermuda as it is never too hot and never gets cold. Perfect temperatures for me, but, way too small to stay too long. You and I could walk across the entire island. :)

You know how I feel. Life first and if there is time, it's good. Otherwise, there is always next week. 💙 I thank you for stopping by and reading. I hope your day is going well!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Otherwise, there is always next week.

How I love this one, it looks like me, even if I happened to forget that it is.
Bad when the laptop doesn't want to collaborate. I have very bad memories too. Writing posts in advance may be a solution, but you can't write them all like that. Of course, the most important ones...

Well, I didn't think it would be hard. I thought of showing an exhibition of Romanian folk shirts, an exhibition that I liked very much. After writing a part I saw that the whole thing was a bit boring, I didn't like how the story came out and so I looked to change it with collateral information. I vaguely knew about these shirts, but I had to do some research and look for photos. I think this is the first post with so many photos that aren't mine.

I saw your reply come in as I was writing. I thought it was a pleasant coincidence, like so many others that have come before.

Five minutes ago I posted, so I can post the link.

A Link Between Past, Present, And Perhaps Future

Let's say no one won or we both won this bet. I like to think we both won.

Thanks, Denise, @dswigle! Have a weekend to your liking, just the way you want it!

I know!!! I cannot believe that it is an every Thursday night affair! I kid you not! Either Hive is down or my computer is in a tizzy!

I know what was wrong! You had fun at it, but, you were trying too hard when you were retelling it. I know that feeling, I want the post to be enjoyed and then it turned into a major project that way. You are such a gifted storyteller, you have so much fun when you are there, carry it back home with you.

Oh! You posted so now I need to go see it! :) Thanks so much for that! I appreciate it!

The cost is $0.70 cents to send a postcard to the US. As a note, if I want to send one to Bermuda from the US, it is $1.20.

If I would like to do the same from Hungary either to the USA, or to Bermuda, then it is 735 Hungarian Forint (HUF), which is currently $1.81 USD, because $1 USD is currently 404.99 Hungarian Forint (HUF). The value of our currency against the USD is record low nowadays.

This was for a postcard, which is cheaper than regular mail. A letter normally costs a fraction more.

The value of our currency against the USD is record low nowadays.

The world is in terrible shape! We need a modern-day miracle! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your words!

Have you ever been in a cave like this?

I've been into a few pretty cool caves before with pools and other neat features but not one with such long stalagmites and stalactites. They were always very short or very rounded or less defined shapes.

How cool! I do love caves and the only one that made me uneasy the first time I went in was Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. You hike one mile straight down and they have separate rooms where the stalactites are. Google it. Super cool. This was the first one I have been to with a lake at the bottom of the entire thing.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Very pleasant place to visit. But, you've only been there 3 days and have managed to explore a lot of things.

You are very lucky to be able to visit a place if it coincides with a certain celebration schedule. That's a bonus for what can be explored.

I am very impressed with you for choosing public transportation, with which you can interact with a lot of people and will provide a different experience, people are a wealth of culture that tells a lot. Finally, you are right, that more and more information can be extracted and you can take it home and share it again.

Being here is really like taking a walk around the world, thanks to people like you who are willing to share the places you've been.

I have been a frequent visitor there, so I know what to see and what to skip. It saves time. Also! The archipelago is about 24 miles (40 km) long and averages less than 1 mile (1.6 km) in width. The main islands are clustered together in the shape of a fishhook and are connected by bridges. The largest island is Main Island, 14 miles (22.5 km) long and 1 mile wide. I can actually walk it except the roads are narrow.

There is always a festival there. It seems like it anyway. I am sure it is coincidental.

If you don't use public transportation, you separate yourself from the local culture and learn nothing, experience less and so, what have you really learned? I am so glad you stopped by and left your words! Thank you!

Those views are beautiful! I was smiling just viewing and reading through... Specially love the masquerade and post office pic 😅 I hope you had your letter passed across safely.

That flower looks almost similar to the one shared but like I had said, I don't know much about flowers 😅

Here is my entry for the marketfriday

The parade/festival was fun! I love how it always seems like there is a festival going on. The postcard has reached the people so that is great! Only took three days!

The flower is an impatient, very familiar species, so probably it is true, They love the shade. Thank you for reading and commenting, and dropping your link!

That place is sure safe because it only has a low crime rate. By the way, I love how the cave looked like to see under. It was very magical. Also, I noticed the clean vibe of the surrounding. I'm sure you had fun there.

I do love Bermuda and it is always a fun time to be had. It is pretty safe, and the crime they have is usually drug-related and insulated to their own. The cave was interesting with the lake below. I had never seen that before!

Thanks so much for stopping by, Paul! @mrnightmare89 !! I hope you are having a great day!

I've not heard about Bermuda much but I can see why you like it. I could do with a peaceful, warm place to chill right now. Love that green mural.

When I was a little kid my parents took me to some caves and when they turned around I had my little red cardigan over my head. I think I was probably trying to protect myself in case it fell down 😂

Yes!!! They were scary when I was little!!! That is so funny. They looked like they would drop right from the ceiling! Actually, some did in this cave, there was a small pile of rock below one!

I am sure that is not a normal happening. I hope. 😁

I like that you said we should be grateful for even the little things.... Most people say, great things from small things come... Therefore, I like that you reminded me of this thoughts.

This week, I apologize I might have broken a bit of the #marketfriday rules. But I hope that this entry counts 🥺

I remember watching it race too! Fascinating, in my opinion. It is all about Australia this year! Eyes on the prize! It's a new version! The caves are always interesting, this is the first one I have been to (with the stalactites and stalagmites) that has a lake at the bottom of it.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read and participate - then dropping the link! Much appreciation!

No! In March, Emirates Team New Zealand and the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron confirmed that Barcelona is to stage the 37th edition of the regatta in September and October 2024.

Black water rafting!!!! Yes!!! We did that in the caves in Texas!!! Black water rafting, where cave spelunking meets white water rafting. You're in a dark cave and your inner tube is the small raft. It was a real sport there! :)

Wow… Bermuda. Yes, what a place. It looks stunning Denise 😁🥰
I wouldn’t mind visiting one day.

What a view that must be from the rock. It already looks amazing from the angle you are standing 😁
Seeing a cave like that always fascinates me. Been in a few so far. And they all look differently. Great capture of it. I like the water beneath it. It adds to the photo.
The book shop just looks cute. To bad they are slowly disappearing everywhere.
Very cool to see the art on the public toilets. It so adds to the overall look and feel. They are doing that well for sure.
Seeing the pink beaches… stunning.

Yes, crime did pick up also in other countries… hope we get back to a new normal soon. Now traveling is picking up again it should. We will see.

I think I found hidden charms of the beaten path. We only saw 3 major touristy sights. Everything else was far away from the busyness 😁

It is a quick hop by plane from the Northeast. It was my go-to place when I was in college.

The view from above was even better, but, didn't want to climb that one and have a camera. I could have gotten up another, but, have done that before, so I skipped it this time.

The pink sand was washed away by Hurricane Bill ten years ago and this last time the sand was a nice shade of pink. In years past, it has been there, but, barely. Now it is apparently pink!

I would never expect you to stay on the touristy paths. That is for tourists. ;) Far and away is usually the best way. Glad you feel the same.

Now, we need to get some more book stores installed. Pronto. Thanks for stopping by and reading, leaving your words and link behind!

Indeed, suddenly a lot of interesting places become close by 😉 living there.

I understand, certain places you just need to go without anything. Safer and nicer to view without distractions… hehehe 🤭

So it comes and goes the pink sand. Interesting 🤓 it does look stunning.

We are the same in that way, touristy spots… nope not for us 🤩😎 let us experience the country, a place and the locals. Take it all in and embrace it fully. 🥰 the only way!

Yes… we sure need too. Maybe a project for when we settle down 🤓😉 would be cool… in many ways 📚📚📚
You are very welcome, good to be back again and joining in 😎😁👋🏻
Have a wonderful Friday Denise!

Pink sand beaches get their color from thousands of broken coral pieces, shells, and calcium carbonate materials left behind by foraminifera (tiny sea creatures with red and pink shells) that live in nearby coral reefs.

That is why it can be taken away by hurricanes if they are strong. The sand does too sometimes. I lived on the beach in Florida for a year and a hurricane took 75% of the sand and washed it away. They had to truck in the sand!!!

Glad you got back safely and had a wonderful time!

Yep, knew how sand is formed… and can for sure imagine something that strong taking it away. I see that here sometimes. Because it is getting dryer by the year. If it rains. It doesn’t go in the ground anymore. The floods come off the mountains all the way to the sea and take everything with them along the way. Including half of the beach. Crazy what nature can do and the force behind it. Before tourist season starts they truck in new sand… but this sand here is basically grinded building waste. 😳

Thanks for the extra information Denise 🥰🤗

That must have been scary in Florida. I never experienced a hurricane yet.
Your kind. I’m back safely and soooo enjoyed it. Can’t wait to share more 😊😉
Have a wonderful evening! Big hug 🤗

It's a pretty short and sweet flight, especially from the airports there. Under $300 gets you a seat on the beach. Now, for that price, you may have to sleep there, but, hey! They have pink sand, you know?

One of the reasons I like Bermuda is most everything is free and the people are nice! Sounds like our Southern part of the country, yes?

It is the weekend! I saw that one coming!

I hope you are doing something fun and you are making something yummy! I haven't quite figured out what that may be, but, I think something on the grill may be in order.

Just so you know, #MarketFriday loves you!

Of course I would love to go there! You make it seem so magical! Of course I would fall in love with the place and never want to leave. I remember crying at having to say goodbye to Hawaii as a young boy.

Here in the dismal state of Michigan, the hidden charms must be so well hidden, I have yet to find them after over 50 years of looking.

Here is my Happy Market Friday link:

I am sure you would love it there, especially the people. The land is pure magic, but, the people are what make it. I can imagine it would be hard for a young boy leaving the Hawaiian Island to go back to the tundra.

There are so many wonderful things about Michigan, otherwise, even you wouldn't have stayed there and put your children through the same perceived hell that you went through. I just don't think you are that kind of father.

Lovely! I so want to go there! I love anything warm and tropical, and would like to visit every such place while I'm on this earth. Hooray for bucket lists!

I want to stand on that rock and see forever and beyond. I bet it is a stunning view up there.

So many wonderful things to see and do, from caves to cafes and book stores!

The owners are so amazing. If you sit there for two hours or ten, they never make you feel like you are overstaying your welcome. Le sigh. I love this place.

Ha ha. Le sigh!

Who doesn't love a touch of tropical, unless they are a tad crazy, yes? You know shopping on Kayak, flights from there to Hamilton, Bermuda... the only airport, BTW... It can be done!

I am all for the lazy, hazy, crazy... I think that is how the song goes? The weather is really unbeatable. It always feels pretty nice, even in winter. For the record, imagine Bermuda shorts, this is the business dress, but now on a slightly younger, sexier version? Every day and get paid. Bonus. :)

I know I will never have a chance to go Bermuda so I am glad to get to tour it here. I love the beach and almost everything you posted here. I have some postcards I have no idea when to use them. Maybe I should use them. Thank you for letting us tour with you.

Here is my entry for #marketfriday.

Yes!! You should send them to your mother. :) I send them to my kids or other family members, like my older aunts who no longer travel much. People love getting mail, especially older people who actually used to mail things. :) Wouldn't you love a postcard from another part of the world from someone? I do! :)

Thanks for coming along! It is always fun taking you! I appreciate you taking the time to join the challenge!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Photos are nice. The hidden charm in Bermuda is unique. It's a mixture of everything. It reminds me a bit of the island near Thailand, I can't remember the name, it was from the movie starring Leonardo !

Phi Phi Leh, but more specifically, I think you are talking about Maya Bay. A genuine paradise in Thailand. I sometimes think of Bermuda like that, it is such a wonderful piece of paradise.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your words.

I love it when you talk about Bermuda and the Caribbean. I've never been there, so I'm always interested in reading about it. It is unfortunate that they have increased crime. it is sad! I like stalactite caves. in Israel, too, there is a very beautiful such cave. You need to dress warmly when you go there. it seems to me that for some reason you do not display a link to my post, which I always leave under my comment. I will mention that I left a link to my post here: https://ecency.com/hive-196308/@tali72/finally-i-got-it

Did I miss your comment here? If I did, I apologize. I saw your husband 😁 The crime is insulated and I think has everything to do with Covid and no tourists. I have never seen any nor heard about any, which makes it feel safer. We have several here in the State (I think I posted about Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico!) and you are right, they are much cooler and I brought a jacket there. This was not quite cool enough.

Thank you for dropping your link! ❤️

Nice place, great beaches. Although Bermuda has a touch of mystery (because of the triangle) it is a very beautiful city and surely full of friendly and cordial people. I love the beach.

I used to be a bit leery of the Bermuda Triangle theory, if you visited there, you never think of it, getting on the island or off! :)

It is full of friendly people and the beaches are amazing!

Every photo tells a story. I can form some things by the shapes of those rocks at the beach. If I am on top of those rocks I can see forever and a little further? The universe then? :D :D I love the color of the water. That's just beautiful.

We also have a place here called Crystal Cave and there is a small cave there where it's name was derived from that we visited when we were kids. I haven't been to since. I was just reminded of it by the name. However, it is no near like what you have posted here. Those stalactites and stalagmites are stunning!

That black circle of the clocktower is so black, blacker than my soul lol!

Disappearing bookstores. Yes, it has happened here too. Gone were the bookshops that I used to frequent back then.

Such a lovely trip you have shared. Everything lovely and beautiful.

Here is my share for this week https://ecency.com/hive-196308/@leeart/wypmkiyq. Happy weekend!

You leave such beautiful comments! Thank you! Aren't those rocks on the beach so very cool? I loved them and the pink sand! It doesn't hurt that water is beautiful also!

Did you get to see a cave, just like this? That is awesome and such an interesting place to wander through! I am fascinated by the stalactites and stalagmites and the amount of time it takes to form them.

Thank you for dropping your link! Those bookstores make me sad!

Haha! The clock tower! Zoom in! You can see the dials up close and the other clock to the left of the black hole! :)

I haven't seen pink sand or stalactites and stalagmites of that extend that's why it's fascinating to see them in photos.

Lol! Now I can figure out the dials.

Pink sand being made from all the washed up coral pieces? I did not know that was how it got coloured like that, seems a bit sad, but what a lovely colour it is. Bermuda does look really appealing, but I'd have to try get around the superstitions 🤣

@janiqua-d Hello!! Fancy meeting you here! You have landed on #MarketFriday, both a challenge and a community that I started. It is a cultural event!

Isn't pink sand the coolest? I was wowed by it as a teenager and to date, the pink beaches are my favorite. :) Okay, to be fair, they are all my favorite!

I use to be freaked by the Bermuda Triangle! Then I started going there and it has 99.9% gone away. I don't even think about it! I have read so much on it and found that many of the rumors had started on the island itself! I found that a tad funny. :) For your information:

The number of ships and aircraft reported missing in the area was not significantly greater, proportionally speaking, than in any other part of the ocean.

In an area frequented by tropical cyclones, the number of disappearances that did occur was, for the most part, neither disproportionate, unlikely, nor mysterious.

Furthermore, Berlitz and other writers would often fail to mention such storms or even represent the disappearance as having happened in calm conditions when meteorological records clearly contradict this.

The numbers themselves had been exaggerated by sloppy research. A boat's disappearance, for example, would be reported, but its eventual (if belated) return to port may not have been.

Some disappearances had, in fact, never happened. One plane crash was said to have taken place in 1937, off Daytona Beach, Florida, in front of hundreds of witnesses; a check of the local papers revealed nothing.

The legend of the Bermuda Triangle is a manufactured mystery, perpetuated by writers who either purposely or unknowingly made use of misconceptions, faulty reasoning, and sensationalism.

In a 2013 study, the World Wide Fund for Nature identified the world's 10 most dangerous waters for shipping, but the Bermuda Triangle was not among them. source

*Anyway, I am delighted that you stopped over I am so glad to meet you! My name is Denise and I live in the Washington, DC Metro area! Welcome to Hive!!! If you ever need anything or want to ask a question, you know where to find me! :) Also on Discord! Thank you for stopping by and have a great night!

Hello again Denise

Thanks so much for that insight, I did not know many of those facts and it is so true that often these folktales and superstitions are passed along the generations each one adding a new little exacerbation - broken telephone on steroids. The stories I heard scared the living bazinga out of me. I'm glad that you were able to push passed being freaked out.

A boat's disappearance, for example, would be reported, but its eventual (if belated) return to port may not have been.

I think the media employs these tactics all the time to this day.

Absolutely love the pink beaches, but like you say, all beaches really 😁 Have a wonderful day and it's nice to know your name now.
