Vacation Mode - Bermuda Baby

My sewing machine is on Vacation too.  A great tip is to get in your annual cleaning while you are away.  Thanks, Norma,  for reminding me.
My Etsy shop is reopened and I'm offering a 20% discount through August.  Use coupon code: SUMMERFUN at checkout.

We took a cruise from NJ to Bermuda.   Due to a recent job change, our son wasn't able to come so Sigourney's mom, Olga, joined us.   We had a great time.  As you can see it didn't bother Mr. Fun one bit to have 4 women in his party.
Here is King's Wharf as were leaving.  This is untouched photo.  The water really is this blue.
I love this mother/daughter photo.
The Martini Bar.  It has a chilled snowy surface (very Winterfell).  The bar tenders juggled and did fun cocktail tricks.
A view from my favorite quiet spot.  Everyone knows this is where I'm likely to be in the afternoon listening to a book and stitching when its not too windy.
In Bermuda Hanna and I rented pedal bikes.  I have some advice.  DON'T!!  It was a billion degrees with lots of hills and no sidewalks.
We pretended we were on the Amazing Race.  We found this secluded beach to rest and regroup. haha  Where's the fast pass?
Rich and the other girls rented scooters.  They admitted it was a bit terrifying, but very fun.  Hanna took her first ride.
The ship had a fabulous therapeutic mineral salt water pool which we all loved.
We give these two first time cruisers A+   They got into the groove of things right away.

We visited Elbow Beach - gorgeous.
The Sand really is pink and feels like powdered sugar.  YUM
It was my first time at a Silent Disco.  It was fabulous.  Everyone wears headphones and listens to 1 of 3 channels playing different songs.
I really loved it - but then again I love everything Disco Related! 
Somewhere under the rainbow......in Bermuda

It's always a little jarring to re-enter reality.  Don't know what to have for dinner?  I do
Public Service Announcement:  This is the BEST summer dinner ever.  mic drop......
Have a great week!

    Breakfast for dinner is always fun! :)

  8. Love that silent disco--looks like you had a super fun time. (Oh and....Do you really think we believe you were appliqueing by holding up that strip? hahaha-)
    We loved Bermuda when we went a few years back--Glad you enjoyed your vacation P A R T A Y !!! hugs, Julierose

  9. You do know how to have fun! Always smile at what your family is up too. Don't you love amazing Race. It's one of my faves. You and Hannah could make a go of it!

  10. Loved living vicariously through your blog. Everything looked so inviting. Glad to have you back.

  11. Welcome home. Dinner looks great!

  12. Yay! Breakfast for dinner -- the perfect re-entry to real life. Looks like you had a great time -- Welcome Back!

  13. Another great lesson in "FUN"!
    Gorgeous beach. Silent disco looks like a hoot!
    Pancakes for dinner are welcome here any time of year. Luckily hubby loves them, so they are my "go to" when I am too tired for more cooking. We like ours with strawberries and whipped cream, too. :)

  14. What stunning scenery! Such blue, clear water. Looks like you had a fabulous time.

  15. What a wonderful cruise (apart from the bicycle riding!) Like you, I sent my machine to the spa for its annual while we were traveling. It's the only time I'm comfortable having it out of the sewing room- even if I don't use it constantly, I like knowing it's there. Your quiet spot on te ship for stitching really appeals.

  16. Thanks for sharing your vacay with us! Wonderful photos as usual! I chuckled at the silent disco video on your blog and facebook! I would like to request some photos of you circa 1977-1978 during the height of disco? Now I know what to play if ever we are sewing together! LOL

  17. That blue water is calling my name! Beautiful and I am a total beach person. Glad you had fun now how about a picture of those blueberry waffles?

  18. Looks like a great trip!!

  19. Love the birds on your wall in your sewing room. Very clever to let the sewing machine also take a vacation. Looks like you had a grand time. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  20. Wow, you really know how to have fun! Looks like a great vacation!

  21. We just got back from a vacation too. Yours looks like you enjoyed it immensely. I have in the past had my machine serviced during vacation but did not this time. A good tip.

  22. Wow - looks like a fun time was had by all! I've always wanted to visit Bermuda...
