Grotto Bay is famous for one thing: Caves.
Since the caves were only a five minute walk from our hotel, we kind of HAD to see them. Plus they’re really old and we like old stuff. According to our guide, the stalagmites and stalactites grow about a centimeter every 100 years, making the caves a bazillion years old.
Next up was a quick trip to St. George’s, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Bermuda’s first capital. The guide books made the town seem like the greatest thing since sliced white bread, but when our cab dropped us off in the town square, we looked around and said, huh? The town was mostly empty; even the visitor center was not in a very hospitable mood.
To be fair, the town was not without some charm. We checked out all the key sites.
