Bermuda

Well, we have now arrived in Bermuda after a long but largely uneventful journey. Although we did fly directly over Weymouth, curiously enough, which was the only gap in an otherwise unbroken expanse of cloud over England.

After staying with Richard and Anna for a few nights, during which we managed to get our bearings, we have now moved into the Bermuda Biological Station for Research (BBSR). Tom, Cher and Emma have joined us for the next two weeks of exciting adventure.

A beach near Somerset village, at the west end of the island.






This photo is a bit of a contrast to the one in the previous post! We have already taken some lovely photos, but sadly the present connection is dial-up and there are problems uploading them. So it will be a couple of days before any more photos will appear, sorry for that!

However, we are both well and having fun. Temperatures are up to low-20s in the day, mainly sunny but with occasional showers (some quite heavy). Altogether a nice temperature for working and wondering about. The sea temperature is only 16 degrees though, which is about as cold as it gets here. More news and information shortly!
