What's on any Bermuda menu? The sea and sky for appetizers. If soft sea air and ocean swims make you hungry, expect to be ravenous in Bermuda For water's all around you-a whole ocean of it. Mild in temperature, kaleidoscopic in colour. And what beaches! Bermuda lobster (September-April) and imported delectables. You'll breakfast on a seaside terrace, lunch under a beach um brella. Stop for a cool drink on a verandah over the busy harbour. Take tea under poincianas, or join us at a cliffside buffet. Bermuda is a feast for the eye as well. Pink sands, sapphire sounds dotted with green islands. White-roofed houses nestled among a riot of semitropical flowers. Stone-walled lanes over hung with bougainvillea and ole ander. And all so clean and bright! For dinner music, you can have Sailor'sdelight Salt Kettle inlet. Swimming, sailing, skin diving, water skiing, fishing, cycling and golf are favourite ways to work up an oceanic appetite. Fortunately for the hungry vaca tioner, Bermuda will feed him and handsomely, too. On fresh caught snapper and rockfish and anything from waltz to watusi, with calypso the favourite local beat. Sight-seeing down flowery lanes. Other Bermuda sounds: the rustle of leaves, the breaking surf, as vel vet night surrounds you. Plan an appetizing Bermuda holiday now.
