Excerpt from Isles in Summer Seas: Beautiful Bermuda You pass through the Gulf Stream and presently come to a land unfamiliar to your eyes, but so rich in hospitality of its people, charm of alluring skies and glory of semi-tropic vegetation, that its strangeness vanishes. Once there you seem to have lived there always. This is Bermuda - the isles of Somers. Among them we, like other folk before us, tarried for a space. Some things we saw as others have done; but we followed beaten track. Therefore, if in our ramble we appear to have departed from the conventional, the fault, if fault there be, lies with circumstance.
