Last week, I visited Bermuda for the first time, and my only regret is I didn’t go sooner! The flight from NY is only an hour and a half, the weather is tropical and balmy, and the beaches and oceans are gorgeous!

My parents used to stay at the Coral Beach & Tennis Club with their friends in the 1960s and 70s. The Club in its present form dates back to 1948, but the oldest dwelling on the property was built before 1650.

After withstanding hard times in the recession, the Club is currently for sale.

My dad, inspired by the the club’s iconic living room, even painted the gathering room in our home in Kiawah the same color.

I’m no expert, but I think this is a Kiskadee Flycatcher?
