Hamilton Bermuda

Hamilton, the capital of Bermuda, exudes a charm that at first glance is typically English.  But the more you delve into the city, the more you feel its subtropical roots.  There are palm trees everywhere.

Where else can you find traditional pubs, Irish linen stores, red English telephone booths, massive stone cathedrals, and palm trees?  The dichotomy is quite startling as you begin to take it all in.

In the following series of photographs you’ll see the Parliament building, two WWI/WWII memorials, some really great old churches amidst palm trees, and the colorful storefronts that line the Front Street, which runs along the port.
