Birthday(s) in Bermuda – Part 3

Our final full day in Bermuda began with a big breakfast while we made plans to head to the beach!

Breakfast
                      Oatmeal forever ❤

Robert and I walked up and down the beach, stopping for plenty of photo opp’s and to admire the “pink” sand.

The sand DOES have a slightly pink hue, thanks to tiny red organisms that grow under the coral reefs and get washed to shore.
