Bermuda Dispatch January 2015

This is a small sublet of photos from my trip to Bermuda. A wall outside of Dockyard had fallen down and revealed an island with a knocked out bridge and a small structure. The small wooden bridge to the island was knocked out so I thought I could roll up my jeans and walk over. Unfortunately it was deeper than I expected, I would not be able to walk over in my jeans. I was faced with a choice. I could turn back, get proper pants, come back and have wasted an hour or I could just say “fuck it”. Guess which I did.

The island had been battered by a recent hurricane and the secured doors had been washed out. Inside, the small structure was full of names. Most of the names were Naval crews that came down with their ships. Dates ranged from the 80s through to the 90s. More recent signatures were from couples or curious explores. My favorite  was the “THATCHER BUSH apr 90” signature.

I explored around the tiny island for awhile. The storm surge had scattered loose debris around the island’s tidal pools. I found several very old nails and a small, very old bullet! The trip was fun, but riding home in wet underpants was not.
