Hike & Ride

Over a dozen years ago we had the opportunity to visit Bermuda for the first time. Our favorite excursion was hiking the Railway Trail, where what once held train tracks was now a serene path across the Bermudian landscape. Back then, we had younger knees and more stamina and managed to hike from our hotel all the way to the Dockyards at the tip of the island. Knowing we could never recreate that lengthy walk, I poured over maps of the trail and found a portion that seemed not only scenic, but easily managed by us "old folks"! We rode the bus out to the trailhead and began our hike, stopping to take photos of the water and a particularly pretty bird. Two city blocks later the trail ended. WHAT?! "We rode all the way out here for THAT?!" asked Tommy. Oooops. It sure looked longer on the map! Ah well, more time for photos.

I had a little fun with my banner on this page, adding tags and tickets, cards, a metal letter and a chipboard arrow among other things. The cut out border strips give the page the look of a scalloped border. What a cool surprise!
