Bermuda is not for the poor

I decided to check out the dog friendly hotels in Bermuda.

While they may be dog friendly, they are not wallet friendly. We are talking 4 figures at the least expensive.

And that’s just for a night.

Of course, the Rosewood is near where the billionaires live. So, prices are commensurate with the neighbourhood.

I guess if you can afford the accomodation, you can probably afford the private jet to get you to Bermuda. Which also means that you can probably find some other place to stay as well.

Unless you want to stay in a hotel.

The rest of us have to leave the dogs back home.

Going to Bermuda???

I am seriously thinking about going to Bermuda for Lobster Season, which goes from the First of September to the 31st of March 31. I would like to take my dogs, which used to be impossible.

Now it’s only difficult.

Only a couple of hotels allow dogs: The Hamilton Princess & Beach Club along with the Rosewood Bermuda. I see which one I would go to if I do take my dogs. Unfortunately, both of them are away from civilisation. So, getting a Twizy would be a definite, but not a problem since the dogs would ride in the back.

Anyway, it’s still in the planning stages, but it is something I am considering. Also, considering Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine or the Gaspé. Those might be more doable with dogs

The Secret Museum of Bermuda

SIMG_7417ome of the things in Masterworks Bermuda’s storage room are the signs for the H.A. & E Smith and Triminghams. There is at least one other lost stores sign. They are the original items.

Anyway, I’ve seen a couple of articles about how you can still buy things from these closed stores. It’s done by going to places like Etsy, eBay, Poshmark, etc. that sell used or secondhand items. Although I have found more than one new with tags items, such as the huge Bermuda shorts in a previous post.Triminghams Bag
The wildest item I have seen so far is this Triminghams bag which is for sale on eBay UK!

I have to agree with the reviewer on Trip Advisor that:

Many old, great stores on Front Street like Trimingham’s and H.A. & E. Smith are gone and replaced by banks, re-insurance firms, and tee-shirt shops. Yesteryear was much nicer.

I liked it better when there weren’t traffic jams too!

But you can still do some shopping online and find the Triminghams handbags.

And even a shopping bag to put it in!

Point Finger Road.

Not sure why this hasn’t made it to the net yet, but I am now fixing that.
