This Fourth of July, we flew to the beautiful island of Bermuda to reunite with Steve’s parents on the island’s pretty pink beaches. We like to spend the holiday as a family and as we’re all still adjusting to our long distance relationship we opted to all board a plane to be together. New York to Bermuda is a two hour direct flight but from Chicago it was more of an epic journey, still well worth it to enjoy the turquoise water with Mimi and GrandDad.
We stayed at the Elbow Beach Hotel, a Mandarin Oriental Property that was definitely hurting from the global economic situation. All the hotel rooms in the main building had been closed for the last two years, giving the property an eerie Shining feeling.
Bermuda is known for its pink sand beaches, but other than being incredibly fine, the color doesn’t look very pink to a Pinkalicious-loving four year old.
