water as the girl (or guy) of your
dreams gracefully swims up to
your boat rafted up in Paradise
Lake just to say hello. “That’s

PLACE TO DUMP A LOVER
p Ice Queen
It is 3am, you’ve been dancing
together all night and decide to
take a quick detour to Ice Queen
for a bite to eat before heading,
um, home. She orders a veggie
burger with tomatoes and lettuce and you a greasy, meaty
hamburger—and suddenly you
realise that this just isn’t going
to work out. Drive away, friend.
Just drive away.

PLACE FOR A DISCREET
p Hog Bay Park
Located way up in Somerset,
Hog Bay Park is pretty far off
the beaten path and the perfect
spot to sneak away with someone special. The hiking paths
eventually lead to a secluded little beach and gorgeous, sweeping views of the south shore. A
word of caution for those on a
romantic rendezvous, however:
stay on the paths as poison ivy
is quite common in the park!
p Botanical Gardens
As more and more of us are
living in smaller spaces (read:
condos) and lead more hectic
lives, tending to our own gardens has become a thing of the
past. When you feel the need
to literally stop and smell the
roses, our judges recommend a
visit to the Botanical Gardens.
For those interested in learning
more about Bermuda’s unique
flora, the 35-acre landscaped
park offers a free walking tour
that’s well worth the time.
