This was my third journey to Bermuda and Ursula’s fourth. Our ship docked at King’s Wharf, which is what we’ll view today.
King’s Wharf is a cluster of former military structures and fortifications, many of which have been converted over into retail shops, restaurants, and bars. Even so, the area maintains its military flavor.
