Welcome to the City of Hamilton It is my honor, as the Mayor, to welcome you to the City of Hamilton, one of the smallest cities in the world, rich in history, culture and heritage. The original Town of Hamilton was incorporated by an Act of the Bermuda Legislature in 1793. Located in a sheltered harbour in the central and largest parish, Pembroke, it was named in honour of the then Governor, Captain Henry Hamilton. The town quickly became the capital of Bermuda when the seat of Government was transferred from St. George’s in 1815. Following the completion of the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, situated some 400 yards east of the present City Hall, the status of City was conferred upon the Town of Hamilton in 1897 to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. The City of Hamilton has a resident population of about 1,100 and an estimated daytime population of approximately 13,340 (40% of Bermuda’s working population). This number increases significantly when tourists are added to the equation. In addition to the excellent cuisine that can be found in the city’s many varied restaurants, the shopping is easy and the historic sites are a must see. I can attest to the fact that Hamilton is a delightful capital to get around on foot. Measuring about a quarter square mile, the entire area can be walked in about 30 minutes however, exploring, discovering and enjoying the sites, both historic and new, can take hours, maybe even days. Anyone wishing to explore the City in depth can participate in the Walkway of History tour that was created as part of Bermuda’s 400th Anniversary, in 2009. Plaques have been installed in the sidewalk at various points along the route to identify important sites of architectural, social, cultural or historical significance in the City. This self-guided tour starts and ends on Church Street in front of the City Hall, and enables the pedestrian to learn about the history of the city and may be taken as a whole or in parts. Some of the sights to discover include: City Hall Opened in 1960, the building is of traditional Bermuda architecture with a Scandinavian influence in respect of the tower. Last year we celebrated the building’s 50th anniversary by reproducing a number of activities that took place at the opening, including inviting some of the workers who helped with the construction. City Hall’s amenities include a theatre, two galleries housing the Bermuda National Gallery and the Bermuda Society of Arts, the Mayor’s Parlour, and the administrative offices of the City of Hamilton. Victoria Park Bandstand Painstakingly dismantled, refurbished and reassembled in 2009 the Victorian Bandstand was originally shipped to Bermuda in 1888 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in June 1887. Wesley Square A purpose built recreational area officially opened in July 2009 to commemorate the men and women who in 1959, with bravery, tenacity and a vision for a better Bermuda staged a peaceful theatre boycott and protested for equality, freedom and the end to segregation. City Parks There are four large public parks within the City of Hamilton that are open to the general public between 8am to sunset every day. They are: Fort Hamilton, Barr’s Bay Park, Par-la-Ville Park and my favorite Victoria Park. Again, welcome to Hamilton, Bermuda at it best. For more information visit www.cityofhamilton.bm.

The house, situated on the site of the former US military base, was constructed circa 1640 by the descendants of Christopher Carter. He was one of two crew members of Sir George Somers’ shipwrecked Sea Venture who remained in Bermuda when the survivors left Bermuda for Virginia in 1610. Although most 17th century Bermuda dwellings were constructed from wood, Carter House is built of stone. It is a typical example of early Bermudian vernacular architecture. The upper living level rests above a lower basement and is reached by an outside staircase. The gable ends are supported by large chimneys and the whole building is set into a hillside to protect against wind. During the time of the US military, Carter House was used as a beauty parlour. These days it accommodates the St David’s Island Historical Society Museum and hosts exhibitions of whaling, farming and other aspects of Bermuda’s history. Admission & Enquiries: $2, call before you visit.

This led to his appointment in 1914 by the Bermuda Trade Development Board to take photographs for the Island’s 1915-16 official tourists’ guide, Bermuda: Nature’s Fairyland. His next visit to Bermuda was more than 40 years later in the late 1950s when he came with his wife Ethel. His photographs from that trip, exhibited in the ACE Gallery, show Bermuda on the cusp of social and economic change. The original transparencies were taken with Ektachrome colour film on a stereo camera. The modern prints are made from those original transparencies and represent hundreds of hours of digitalization and retouching. The colours though remain true to the original film and are rare examples of 1950s colour photographs. Gallery Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11:00am – 2:00pm except by appointment.

In the Arts… by Charles Zuill The FibER Arts in Bermuda For most of our history, we Bermudians gave expression to our aesthetic urges primarily through the craft arts. When we consider what it was that we produced we usually think of those objects that tend to be the most durable such as furniture, silver and architecture. Seldom do we give consideration to such as the fiber arts, yet records show that Bermudian’s were skilled in the making of palmetto baskets, bags, hats, etc. Not to mention the other fiber arts, such as wool, cotton spinning, weaving, knitting and crocheting. According to the recently published book, In The Eye of All Trade, by Michael J. Jarvis, Bermudian women of the 18th century made a variety of textiles, including homespun woolens. At that time there was widespread ownership of sheep, while household inventories from the period indicate that many families owned spinning wheels and looms. Good quality cotton was also grown. Additionally, dye plants, such as indigo were grown, to colour the fabrics. The making of quilts was a common practice and inventories mention the ownership of quilting frames, as well. After 1750, flax and flax wheels for the making of linen are also noted. During the 19th century there were experiments in the production of silk, from what I have read about the undertaking it was only moderately successful. At that time the mulberry tree was introduced and it was on that, the silk worms fed. Included in the fiber arts is the making of baskets and other objects, such as bags and hats and Bermudian women were also skilled in making these as well. Indeed, the plaiting of palmetto and its use in the making of hats became a substantial industry during the 17th and 18th centuries. Newspaper articles form the early 19th century; indicate that these skills were still being practiced. During the 18th century, the wearing of Bermuda made hats in London was highly fashionable and records show that in the 1720’s, exports of plaited palmetto exceeded £10,000 annually. This craft was of particular benefit to women, who were the main practitioners of this art. During the nineteenth century, when the export of winter vegetables, such as onions and potatoes became one of the principal industries, produce, such as onions were collected in woven bags made from palmetto and I am told, that it took only one palmetto frond to make an onion bag. Interestingly, palmetto was also used in the making of rope, as well as in the making of seats for chairs. Continued on page 32

of the Month …

Elizabeth Mulderig Scott sits down with Elizabeth Tiny the Tree Frog. What a great children’s book. What was it that inspired you to write this book? Now in it’s 5th printing, did you ever think you would have this kind of success? Please elaborate.

A percentage of proceeds from my Do-Boy Digs Bermuda book goes to the S.P.C.A.

I was inspired to write ‘ Tiny the Tree Frog Tours Bermuda’ when I realized that children seem to be fascinated by tree frogs. I never dreamed the book would be so successful. The fact that it has gone into fifth edition, even with an eight-year break in between printings, is amazing. You have been in three BNG Bacardi Biennials and also three Masterworks Charman exhibitions. Your exhibition work utilizes a pointillism style and focuses on Alice in Wonderland. Why have you chosen this style when you are working in a surreal arena?

I used to do needlepoint, but a girl can only make so many pillows! Then I realized that pointillism was a good replacement. The build up of color using small dots creates a strong luminosity. In these paintings I am honoring the memories of my idyllic childhood in Bermuda. I am paying homage to my favorite childhood story, ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and to the person who helped bring the story to life for me, my mamma Ruthy. Once more you have created a legacy. Tiny the Tree Frog and the Story Walk. Par-la-Ville and Victoria Park are the venues and please tell This Week what one can expect from this walk?

Art Matters

Continued from page 26

Today, only a very few individuals are still plaiting palmetto. It is practically a dead art, but Ronnie Chameau in particular, is busy trying to revive it. She not only teaches the art to adult, she also is teaching it to school children and every Thursday afternoon she demonstrates her craft at the Bermuda Craft Market at Dockyard. This is certainly worth seeing. In terms of durability, the fiber arts may not be in the same league as furniture, silver and architecture, nevertheless some examples have been pasted down through the generations and Bermuda made textiles as well as palmetto baskets and hats can be seen in such museums as; St. George’s Historical Society, Carter House, St. David’s, Natural History Museum, Bermuda Aquarium in Flatts Village and the Bermuda Historical Society Museum at Par-la-Ville park in Hamilton.

exercise as well. The idea was originated to encourage children to read and exercise. Local kids and adults seem to really enjoy the Story Walk. It’s a great way to get people into the parks. I am also getting positive feedback from visitors. Some of them have been inspired to actually tour some of the places that Tiny tours in Bermuda. There is more about the Story Walk on my website: www.betsybermuda.com You are always creating new ideas and projects. Please elaborate for our readers on what’s coming new and what we can expect in the future?

Based on the popularity of Tiny in Bermuda, I have been inspired to do a series in Europe using a dinosaur named Toppy instead of a tree frog. The first book, which is in the process of being produced, takes place on the Jurassic coast. “ Toppy Tours the Dinosaurs” has already been pre-ordered by Daunt’s bookstore in London. Also, I have just produced a book entitled: Leo the Lizard Tours Capri. It’s been selling so well that we have gotten orders from other places on the Amalfi coast. The schools in Capri might be using the book as a learning tool as it is written in both English and Italian. This is perhaps the greatest thrill for me as the point of writing the books in the first place is to encourage children to love reading.

34 here in Bermuda at the Crisson & Hind Fine Art Gallery on Front Street, Hamilton. Gallery owner Colin (Dusty) Hind has developed an extraordinarily close relationship with the artists, many of who now work exclusively on commissions for the Gallery. Mr. Hind visits Zimbabwe up to three times a year, personally helping to source, quarry and truck stone to the artists’ workshops where the sculptors set about making hard, beautiful Zimbabwean stone such as springstone, butter jade and serpentine, live and breathe. The Gallery teems with handsome tribal chiefs, elaborately braided women, prowling leopards, and intricate herds of antelopes and elephant. The pieces can weigh up to 400 lbs but the Gallery can ship pieces all over the world at reasonable cost. Each piece has already travelled more than 8,000 miles, packed in custom boxes, made by the Gallery’s experienced staff in Zimbabwe. The Gallery will repack, fully insure and ship within days of purchase. Remember that original works of art are duty-free into the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. Smaller pieces up to about 25 lbs can be taken as accompanying baggage. Masterworks MUSEUM of Bermuda Art 441 236-2950, www.bermudamasterworks.com Set in the Botanical Gardens, Bermuda’s first ever purpose built museum houses a collection of over 1,200 pieces of Bermuda inspired art. Renowned artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Winslow Homer and Albert Gleizes are part of the permanent collection, and there are continuously evolving shows of local artists on display. Masterworks Foundation was started 25 years ago with just a few paintings, and has grown to the collection we see today. In March 2008, after five years of construction, the new Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art was opened to the public. The museum presents an impressive facility for educational purposes for all Bermudians, as well as providing an exciting destination for visitors to the island. The museum shop sells prints and original local art, and Homer’s Café serves a wide selection of baked goods including gluten free goods, lunch items and afternoon tea. The Museum is easily accessible with a ramp and elevator. On display in the Butterfield Family Gallery until August 20th, 2011 is a show entitled “Floral Lane”. Floral Lane is an exhibit which explores Bermuda’s transformation from a barren terrain covered in low scrub, screw palms and cedars that greeting the early explorers, to the lush semi-tropical paradise it is today. The exhibit will feature works from famous artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Marsden Hartley and Dodge McKnight, and there will even be works on display for the very first time from the permanent Collection. Monday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm. $5 admission, free for members and children under 12. Closed on public holidays.

Heritage Matters… by Dr. Edward Harris

Lost in the Northern Atlantic The recent events have put in the limelight the Islands of Bermuda, situated a thousand kilometers off the coast of the eastern U.S…Those isles are in fact a coral atoll…lost in the northern Atlantic. Thus the Editor of the French magazine Géographia in July 1953 opens an article on the then new world order at Bermuda. In the essay, retired Rear Admiral Adolphe-Auguste Lepotier, a visitor to Bermuda in 1943, gave his views on “this tropical paradise that got lost north of the Tropic of Cancer”. Due to its geological structure and geographical position, the island was becoming “in the current state of world political and economic affairs an important strategic base and also the ‘Riviera’ for New Yorkers”. Bermuda was familiar with the Free French navy, which had some 50 ships and almost 4,000 men serving with the Royal Navy. The most Cover of 1953 issue of the famous of the fleet to visit the island was the magazine Géographia mega-submarine Surcouf, which had its own ensign with the initials “C G”, in honour of the Free French leader.

37 The following year, Captain Lepotier arrived at Bermuda in command of a warship flotilla of the Free French Navy, for refitting and supply. He was captain of the Tempete, in the company of the Simoun, both Bourrasque Class destroyers. Other ships in the group included Elan Class minesweepers Gazelle, Commandant Bory and Commandant Delage. The officers and crew had a very pleasant stay on the island, as attested by letters of thanks written to the Bermuda Ladies League, according to information at www.Bermuda-online.org. Lepotier’s article reminds us of the unique position of Bermuda as the northernmost coral atoll, bathed by the warm Gulf Stream, the largest “river” in the world. Ensigns of Free “That trans-Atlantic ‘central heating system’ starts French Navy straight out of the Florida Channel, then curves eastward as if to serve Bermuda as its first and favorite client, snubbing the American Coastline which is subject to the icy Labrador Current.” He mentions the importation of African slaves, who acquired “excellent reputations as able seamen and fishermen, helping in the design of a special type of rig called Bermuda sails”. He then discusses the building of the American bases, as “I was stationed on the island in the spring of 1943 while the group of escort ships I was in command of was renovated at the Ireland Island Arsenal and Base. I witnessed then those rapid developments and transformations of the local geography that were necessitated by strategic considerations” of the war. After reviewing its charms for tourists, Lepotier concludes: this “oasis” that some caprice of geography positioned amid abyssal depths in this predestined point hides beneath its poetic charm some hydrographic realities that make it one of the major strategic bases of the modern world. To underscore the hydrographic realities, Lepotier’s chart emphasize the channels and anchorages of vital naval importance, the lands of Bermuda almost a faded backdrop: “the ‘Honeymoon Islands’ are beaded around those ‘strategic points’.”

Do You Know… … About the first U.S. Military Base in Bermuda? In October 1917, after the United States entered the First World War, the first of many convoys of American Submarine Chasers anchored in Hamilton Harbour on their way to France. In March 1918 White’s Island in Hamilton Harbour was leased to the United States Government as a stores depot and a number of buildings were built as warehouses. Officially this was the U.S. Navy’s Naval Base No. 24.

The Isle of White, better known as White’s Island, in Hamilton Harbour before it became the U.S. Navy’s Naval Base No. 24.

The only letter mailed at the Isle of White Navy Base that is known to have survived. It was marked ‘Sailors Mail Foreign Service’ and mailed on March 22, 1919.

Sent by an officer stationed on USS Tallahassee, this postcard was mailed in Bermuda on March 16, 1919.

A postcard sent by a sailor on USS Leonidas on May 8, 1919. It is interesting that ‘BERMUDA’ and ‘B.W.I.’ is part of the ship’s postmark. In the early days of Naval Base No. 24, the USS Prometheus – the U.S. Navy’s largest repair ship – was stationed in Bermuda to service the many ships crossing the Atlantic for France. She was first replaced by USS Alert, and later USS Tallahassee, a submarine tender. Another US Navy vessel that came to Bermuda regularly was the USS Leonidas, a tender capable of supplying two squadrons of submarine chasers. After the war she escorted convoys of homeward bound submarine chasers from the Mediterranean via the Azores and Bermuda back to New York. To meet the needs of the hundreds of US sailors who were in Bermuda regularly, a group of about twenty American ladies living in Bermuda formed ‘The American Navy Club’ in December 1917. Rooms were loaned free of charge by the Bermuda Drug Company and opened on Christmas Day with Bermuda’s Governor Sir James Willcocks as guest of honour. Countless US sailors were entertained at ‘The American Navy Club’. There was always a well-cooked meal being served; there were weekly dances held; and there was a writing room well-stocked with Bermuda postcards for those wanting to write home. With the end of World War I and most of the ships having returned to the US, the American flag was lowered on White’s Island in May 1919 and Naval Base No. 24 ceased to exist. – Email comments to: netlink@cwbda.bm

WHERE KIDS RULE

Shopping… What I Should Know About Buying a Watch Debbie Jordan of Swiss Timing The way you buy a watch is the same way you purchase a suit – it has to match your style and be a perfect fit. First of all you have to think about what you want to do with the watch – sports, work in an office environment, painter or construction worker – each one will require a different type of watch. For example a construction worker will require a watch most likely in Stainless Steel as it will take a lot of wear and tear where as an office worker can go with a gold or gold plated watch or two tone and it will hold up very well as it is in a much gentler environment. What type of movement do you like? There are basically three different types of movements. Automatic – This means it goes by the movement of your wrist – they contain a Rotor that winds it up as you wear it. They normally have a 48-hour power reserve – this means that it will keep working for that long once you take it off. If it stops you simply give it a few winds, re-set the time and off you go. Mechanical – This means that you have to wind the watch each day to keep it going. Quartz – A movement that is powered by a battery Present this coupon for a Is Water Resistant Important? 10% discount on a purchase over $10 Not valid with other specials, Tabacco products or candy Yes it is – this will help protect you from Rain or even humidity. Just because a watch says waterresistant doesn’t mean you should swim or shower with it on. To be safe, only do if it’s water resistant up to 100 meters. Water is your biggest enemy. If water gets in, especially salt water – you need to bring it in immediately, so Visit Bermuda’s original theme that it can be opened and cleaned and store which features the island’s salt removed – if not it will start to favourite mascot.

Golf… Never Give Up During the US Open held at Congressional Country Club, the United States Golf Association asked Ken Venturi to present the US Open Trophy to the 2011 Champion. Venturi agreed and made his way to Washington D.C. Prior to the tournament, he walked the course and reflected on his US Open victory that happened at this same golf course back in 1964. In those days the final 36 holes were played on the same day. On that Saturday, temperatures soared above 100 degrees. Venturi had finished the first 18 holes and lay lifeless on the floor of the Congressional locker room. His core body temperature had reached an incredibly high 106 degrees…105 degrees can cause damage to the human brain. The doctors looking over Venturi suggested that it was suicidal to attempt the final 18 holes. Venturi remarked that it would be better to give it a shot than stay in the position he was in. With that, Dr. Everett escorted Venturi to the first tee. Venturi explained that he couldn’t remember anything about the front nine except his own putt on #9 before finally gathering himself on the back nine. He played with Raymond Floyd and when the round was completed, Venturi had won the Open. He handed Floyd his scorecard and had failed to record any of his competitors’ scores. The heat had almost certainly beaten him, but his will to win prevailed. If there is a moral to this story it may be to keep yourself hydrated when playing in high temperatures with high humidity. But I like to think that the moral is one about courage, determination and the desire to give it your all. We have had days on the links that challenge our ability. We have had moments when we find it easier to quit than keep going. And just when you think that the game has tortured you beyond wits end, look over your shoulder and know that there are those who have bigger challenges they overcome everyday. One of basketball’s great coaches Jim Valvano announced to an arena full of fans knowing that he was dying of cancer, “Never Give Up”!

Business… Expatriate Puzzle Expatriates who are offered work in Bermuda must solve an impossible puzzle before they are allowed to work on the Island. Star Trek fans will be familiar with the concept of the Kobiyashi Maru. It was an examination which there was no way to win, a test of how a man might act in the face of certain death. Captain Kirk didn’t believe in no-win situations. He reprogrammed the simulator running the test, and won. So it is with the expatriate exam. It’s a perfect catch-22. There is no solution; one must change the rules of the game in the face of certain career death. The Bermuda test shows up in the most innocent of packages. Foreigners hired to work in Bermuda must submit a chest x-ray along with all their other documents. Doesn’t sound like much, does it? That’s what I thought, back in the day, when I booked an appointment at a hospital for my chest x-ray. It was a chilly morning at the start of winter. I stood around without my shirt on for about an hour in an unheated room while waiting my turn for the x-ray. Then I was squeezed between two giant glass plates. Everyone left the room (except me) while the deadly x-ray machine did its work. Then they all came back in and I was sent off to wait for the results. Eventually, the nurse appeared to tell me I had a great chest. (No, I didn’t make the obvious comment.) She asked why I had come in, since no doctor had referred me. I explained about Bermuda’s x-ray specs, and asked if I might now have the x-ray. “Oooh, no,” the nurse said, “it’s hospital property. It has to stay in the hospital. It’s ours. You can’t have it.” “Can I buy it?” I asked? “Ooh no, what would you do with it?” I explained again about Bermuda. “No, dear,” she said, “the public can’t have their medical records. Wouldn’t do. Ooh, no.” So now what? No x-ray, no job. This was the Kobiyashi Bermuda. It was time to change the rules. I waited until the nurse left the room and stole the x-ray. Borrowed it, I mean. It went under my coat and I went through the door. It was a shameful act that would hurt no one and lead to me spending 35 years on the Rock. I was laughing. Fate laughs at those who laugh. The Post Office — that great British institution that has never really grasped that it is supposed to deliver the mail, not throw it away — refused point-blank to accept an envelope as large as the x-ray when I tried to post it to Bermuda. It was the Kobiyashi Post Office. Time to change the rules. I went out to Heathrow, from which flights to Bermuda originated back then, and paid a guy best part of $100 to hand-deliver the envelope to Immigration when he arrived on the Island. Jim Kirk has nothin’ on me.

Dockyard to St. George’s… Dockyard and Western Parishes Dockyard Visitor Information Center Royal Naval Dockyard At The Dockyard Visitor Information Center (VIC) you will find everything you need to have a “Bermudaful” day. Conveniently located adjacent to the Cruise Ship Pier, Bus and Ferry stop, we offer up to date information on transport, local events, attractions and tours. Our friendly staff are on hand to assist you with local knowledge on where to go and what to do. Public Transport passes, wifi, phone cards, and tour tickets are available for purchase, and you will find the best prices on souvenirs, gifts and sundry items at our unique gift shop. Make the most out of your Bermuda Break with a visit to the Dockyard Visitor Information Center (VIC) THE ROYAL NAVAL DOCKYARD Ireland Island, Sandys Work began on this massive complex in 1809, not long after the conclusion of the Napoleonic Wars and just before the War of 1812. Envisioned as a strategic British military outpost that would make Bermuda the “Gibraltar of the West,” the Royal Naval Dockyard was built by slave and convict labour. The Dockyard locked its gates in 1951. Since then, the seventy-five acre site has been painstakingly renovated to accommodate museums, a movie theatre, restaurants, The Arts Centre and the Bermuda Craft Market. NATIONAL MUSEUM OF BERMUDA Ireland Island, Sandys Located in the Keep of the Royal Naval Dockyard, this museum has become one of the island’s most frequently visited destinations since being opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II in 1975. Its popularity has increased even more with the recent restoration and opening of Commissioner’s House, a monolith that crowns the site and is used for both exhibiting and entertainment purposes. Elsewhere on the complex, exhibits chronicle both Bermuda’s association with the Royal Naval and its own interesting maritime history. In addition to a collection of Bermuda-made boats, there are relics from the Sea Venture, maps, the famous Tucker Treasure—collected from the sixteenth-century Spanish galleon the San Pedro—and many more artifacts. Open Monday to Saturday 9:30am-4:00pm (last admission 4pm). Adults $10, seniors $8, children under 13 FREE. For further information telephone (441) 234-1333. COMMISSIONER’S HOUSE National Museum of Bermuda, Royal Naval Dockyard Located within the confines of the National Museum of Bermuda, Commissioner’s House dominates this complex and its entire surroundings from an elevated situation that assures its visibility from miles away.  Largely constructed between 1823 and 1828, this commanding Georgian ‘house’ epitomizes British imperial style, power and engineering wherewithal during the nineteenth century.  An experimental building in several regards,


60 Commissioner’s House may have been the first domestic project anywhere to use cast iron to support its floors and roof.  Rescued from near dereliction through a protracted, award-winning restoration, the building—one of the most important on the island—now houses exhibits on slavery, history of tourism, Bermuda’s connections with the West Indies and the Azores and Bermuda’s military and seafaring history.  Open during regular Museum hours.

The first church on the site was constructed in 1612 of native cedar and a thatched roof. This original edifice was replaced seven years later by a more permanent structure that lasted almost a hundred years, until the hurricane of 1712. Following this disaster, the church was again rebuilt. Open Mon. to Sat. 10am-4pm. Anglican service 11:15am Sundays. THE OLD RECTORY Broad Alley, St. George’s, behind St. Peter’s Church Built in 1699, this charming cottage on one of the numerous picturesque back streets in St. George’s is one of Bermuda’s oldest houses. Acquired in 1700 by Captain George Dew, an unsuccessful privateer who became a St. George’s assemblyman, The Old Rectory acquired its current name when it became the residence of the Rev. Alexander Richardson in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. Outisde viewing only. ST.

Adults $5, Children under 12 $2 BERMUDIAN HERITAGE ASSOCIATION Samaritan’s Lodge, Intersection of York and Water Streets St. George’s newest museum was formed in 1994 to preserve and document the history of black culture and achievement in Bermuda.

Open Tues-Sat 10am-3pm. Admission $4. 441 297-4126. TOWN HALL AND THE STATE HOUSE Town of St. George Town Hall, the handsome building commanding King’s Square and bearing the town crest was begun in 1802, a few years after the Corporation of St. George’s was founded in 1797.

72 important buildings. Erected around 1620 by Governor Nathaniel Butler, the State House is open to the public 10am-4pm on Wednesdays only. THE UNFINISHED CHURCH Duke of Kent Street, St. George’s The impressive Gothic vestige that looms over the town of St. George’s was begun in 1870 as a replacement for St. Peter’s, which had fallen into a state of serious disrepair. Designed by William Hay, the Scottish-born architect who later drew the plans for Hamilton’s cathedral, the St. George’s church was abandoned in 1899 when near completion. FORT ST. CATHERINE St. Catherine’s Point, St. George’s Fort St. Catherine stands on the site of one of the four towers that Governor Richard Moore erected along Bermuda’s coast around 1613.

The present, completely restored structure dates from the mid-nineteenth century and is home to fascinating exhibits including military guns and weapons. Open Mon-Fri 10:00am-4:00pm. CARTER HOUSE Southside Road, St. David’s Carter House was probably built in the 1720s by John Hayward and his wife Martha, reputedly a descendant of Christopher Carter, one of the two Sea Venture survivors who stayed behind when the vessel’s other passengers continued on to Virginia in 1610. Acquired by the St. David’s Historical Society, this small house with its unusual ‘welcoming arm’ stairs has been converted into a museum that commemorates the pre-war agrarian traditions of St. David’s. Open Saturday 10:00am-4:00pm. ST. DAVID’S LIGHTHOUSE Mount Hill, St. David’s Constructed of Bermuda stone, this 55-foot structure is one of two local lighthouses.

Pompano Beach Club

I have had the pleasure of working in the Hospitality industry for my entire adult life. In 1972, I was employed by the Lamb family at the Pompano Beach Club in Southampton as a waitress. I held the position until 1980 when I decided it was time to stay at home and look after my two young girls. In 1982 Tom Lamb Sr., the Pompano Beach Club’s original owner and founder called me and asked if I would like to return to the hotel where I had made a favorable impression! I was re-employed and moved to a position that I still hold today as Bartender in the very busy Coral Beach Café, (the poolside bar and luncheon area of the Club). I have been very popular with the Hotel guests and maintain strong friendships with the guests who return year after year to the warm and hospitable property. In my time at the bar I have seen many staff come and go and I have many stories. I have held my post for almost thirty years with a style and flair that keep people returning to the stools that line my bar. Through the years I have invented and perfected many specialty drinks. Here are two of my favorites. “Pompano Special”

“Summer Squash”

1 oz Goslings Light Rum 1 oz Goslings Crystal Gin 1 oz Muskova Vodka 1 oz Bermuda Gold Touch of Grenadine to colour

1 oz Goslings Light Rum 1 oz Bermuda Banana Liqueur 1 oz Galliano 2 ozs Orange Juice 2 ozs Pineapple Juice ½ cup Mango Island Oasis Mix

Directions: Add ½ cup Island Oasis Vanilla Ice Cream mix (vanilla ice cream will work as well). Blend all ingredients with ice to a “freezee” mix. Garnish with loquat berry (in season) and a Maraschino cherry.

Directions: Blend with ice and garnish with a slice of fresh Mango

What’s Cooking Bermuda… National Filet Mignon Month – A Tribute to the King of Beef I’m certain to be catching the majority of you off guard and in total shock about this holiday. But come on, I’m a steak guy and steaks are what I sell, so how can I forget such an important event. Let me tell you about this wonderful cut of Beef. FILET MIGNON is the most expensive cut of beef and comes from the small end of the tenderloin. Boneless, it is ideally 2-1/2 inches thick and 1-1/2 to 3 inches in diameter. Because this area of the animal is not weight-bearing, the connective tissue is not toughened by exercise. This results in extremely tender meat, the most tender of all beef cuts. It is lightly marbled and mild flavored compared to other cuts. The term “filet mignon” is a French derivative; the literal meaning is small (mignon) boneless meat (filet). On restaurant menus it is called Filet Mignon, Tournedos, Medallions, Filet de Boeuf and Tenderloin Steak. Chateaubriand is the center, thickest cut from the tenderloin, and a specific preparation. Here are some of my favorite recipes for you to try at home! Grilled Spicy Filet Mignon Salad with Ginger-Lime Dressing Ingredients 3 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice 1 tablespoon chili paste with garlic 1 tablespoon peanut oil 2 (12-ounce) filet mignons Freshly ground pepper
