The Big Five-OH!

Happy Birthday to me! A week ago, I officially turned fitty!

The hub whisked me off to Bermuda for a long weekend.  It seemed the entire island knew. And, hahaha, it somehow even made front-page news! Go figure, right?  Champagne with hibiscus?  Check.  All dressed up with somewhere to go?  Yup.

 The bar was fabulously oh-so-British.  Scrumptious, to say the least.

 The library?  Perfect for a night cap before retiring.  Oh yes.

 So very tasteful.

And speaking of which. . . 

A room with a view. Sunrise, sunrise birthday morning; Saturday, November 13, 2010.  I'm 50!

And later that afternoon, the same view from the balcony.  Sigh.

There were views from everywhere, of course.

Absolutely one as beautiful as the next.
 Even better with a Swizzle in hand, no?

 I spied a Yellow-Bellied Flycatcher!  Yes, everything in Bermuda is absolutely lovely.

 A short shopping spree into Hamilton where I spied my favorite local black rum!

 A small cove in The Flats, a short distance from the main hotel.

And the beach.

  The pink sands motivated me.

Along with the darling pastel-colored homes.

And the free-roaming chickens and hens.

Birthday flowers.

 Swimming in the pool.

 The views from the main pool.

And some relaxation time at the spa.  Like you need this in addition to every other gorgeous spot on the property.  

What a magical birthday weekend.  Hats off to the ever-wonderful hub.  It was absolutely perfect in every way. I'm the luckiest girl in the entire world.

PS  Tucker's Point resort was the best place ever.
