IT’S BETTER IN THE BAHAMAS

BY JANET STEINBERG



PART SIX OF A SERIES



The Bahamas is not one destination, but many. The Bahamas is a 600-mile long archipelago of about 3000 islands but only 30 of them are permanently occupied.  Each island is unique, but they are all part of a whole that Bahamians refer to as their “Family of Islands”. Some of the better-known Islands of the Bahamas are New Providence, Paradise, Grand Bahama, Abaco, Exuma, and Eleuthera.  Each island has its own personality and each is surrounded by pristine, colorful water, fanned by gentle trade winds, and graced with miles of untouched beaches.

BERMUDA:A PICTURE POSTCARD ISLAND

BY JANET STEINBERG


PART FIVE OF A SERIES


Having sailed some 641 nautical miles from Norfolk on Silversea’s Silver Shadow, we reached the delicate water-colored islands of Bermuda that are among the most beloved islands in the world.  Under a “pink cloud of oleanders, the idyllic islands of Bermuda are framed by a shimmering turquoise ocean.  Homes painted in pastel colors, and topped with white lime-washed roofs, line the flawless spun-sugar beaches of these breathtakingly beautiful islands.
