Picture of me (pregnant) in Somer's Garden

I visited Bermuda for the first time in June 1963 because my husband's ship was there for a week.  I flew in on a propeller plane.

We stayed in a hotel in St. George that no longer exists. The hotel we stayed in was one of the least expensive I could find, and was near the airport to reduce taxi fares.  It was in St George above town and had a good view of town. I don't remember exactly what our visit cost in 1963

As a pregnant person I found riding the bus very uncomfortable. They were sprung quite stiff and it was a jouncy ride. I preferred the ferries. Of course I couldn't ride a moped in my condition.

We visited St. George (St Peter's Church, Fort St. Catherine, and Somer's Garden), Hamilton (the City Hall), we took a ferry to the smallest draw bridge in Sandy's Parish and we went to the Aquarium.
